Spectra 70 – 26kg Granite Grinder & Conche for Chocolate/alternatives (Heavy Duty – with Speed control – 2 HP 240v – Single phase)
A long standing request from chocolatiers has been the requirement for controlling the speed of the grinding process, and we listened. The newly developed model with an electronic speed control unit allows the drum rotation speed to be varied from zero to full speed.
This 26kg capacity machine is the perfect companion to enterprise. The classic Titling feature makes it unnecessary to have to lift the vessel or drum to pour out the contents. Simply tilt and pour it out and avoid straining yourself. Cleaning is a breeze….. Simply pour water, run the grinder for a few seconds and pour out the water… it almost cleans itself. Solid Stainless Steel stand provides elegance, strength and durability. In addition, this grinder has all the features that make it stand out … a powerful motor, black granite grinding stones for a long life of 10 years or more and high quality internal and external components.
Tension of the granite stones can be adjusted to obtain different grades of shear at different stages of the grinding process and for different ingredients. The machine features double granite roller stones that rotate over a granite base. This creates tremendous shear that reduces the cocoa nibs to fine chocolate liquor with a possible particle size of the order of less than 15 microns.
Speed controller and control panel is provided as standard with the unit, and comes with built in electrical MCB protection. This unit helps you to set the machine speed for different processing and adjust the quantity of ingredients. This is very useful for you to differentiate your process from others, and make your recipe and processing unique to yourself.
The machine can also work as a conch and a refiner. The tension from the stones can be fully released for the conching cycle without grinding further, such that the cocoa liquor is continuously exposed to air without grinding it further and the volatiles are removed. All models have this feature and there is no requirement for a separate model or attachments to buy. There is no need to buy any additional add-ons or attachments as all are included.
Comes standard with a chain drive, so there are no issues with rubber belts or difficult to maintain gear drives.
This amazing stone mèlanger is the perfect companion to your endeavours.

Making Stone ground nut butter with a Spectra machine involves using in-built grinding stones which create minimal friction, allowing the temperature of the nuts to be maintained at low levels throughout, preserving the precious nutrients and flavours whilst achieving a silky smooth texture. There is no need to add salt, refined sugars, trans fats or preservatives.
In contrast general shop-bought nut butter is processed using blades that chop up the peanuts, generating more heat which can alter the taste degrade the key vitamins and healthy oils and generally contain salt, sugar, hydrogenated oils (trans fat!) and preservatives to make it more shelf-stable, resulting in a lower nutritional quality product.
Stone grinding your nut butter helps keep the healthy unsaturated fats, proteins and minimal carbohydrates naturally contained within the nuts – which is good for your heart, helping keep your cholesterol levels in check.
The lid that comes standard with the machine does not have any ventilation. We offer a ventilated lid that may be added to the order. This allows ventilation through netted ventilators.
