Petzholdt Heidenauer

Over the last several, Petzholdt Heidenauer has focused on optimizing and developing its chocolate processing machines. One example of that effort, the company launched a new, more efficient five-roll refiner.

In redesigning its machines, Petzholdt Heidenauer combined the benefits of classic cocoa processing with the latest optimizations available in automation and technology.  

Thus, the new Roaster conserves energy consumption and comes with a new air system and more safety features. The new winnower has an automatic opening for better access for maintenance. And the newly designed crusher features an automatic air adjustment, which helps to reduce the percentage of fine parts.

In addition, the company’s range of mills has been expanded to include a new beater blade mill as well as a ball mill, both with capacities up to two tons per hour.

The HBM V Vacuum Mixers for the treatment of cocoa liquor represent a totally new development within the cocoa processing machines range. These mixers are available for batch sizes from 500 to 5,000 kg. and are used for sterilizing, alkalizing and treating cocoa liquor with live steam.

The company also offers complete turnkey cocoa factories.

Thus, the company proudly says that “we are back in cocoa processing.”
