MacIntyre Announces NEXT Generation Refiner/Conche Range

2020-12-01

Low maintenance, more energy efficient refiner / conche operation

MacIntyre Chocolate Systems announces the new NEXT Generation Refiner / Conche range that sets the benchmark for continuous, low maintenance operation together with greater energy efficiency. The introduction of air pressure seals, combined with IE3 energy efficient motors, mean more efficient running for processing high quality pure chocolate, compounds, cremes, spreads, nut pastes and pralines, for example. 

Following extensive customer and industry research, MacIntyre has redesigned its market leading Refiner / Conche. Gone are the traditional glands and packing materials and in their place are long life air pressure seals. The incorporation of air pressure seals means zero loss of product due to gland seepage, improving the time and energy efficiency of every batch. Another advantage of the switch to the long life air pressure seals is a reduction in maintenance requirements in this area, significantly reducing production downtime.

Easier Commissioning and Operation

The NEXT Generation Refiner / Conche range is available in four capacities: 500, 1250, 2000 and 3000 kg, including 3000kg and 5000kg Duplex Models. Removal of the glands and packing material gives the Refiner / Conche a more compact appearance, while the incorporation of a new spherical bearing, combined with IE3 energy efficient motors, mean more efficient running and enhanced surface contact.

All MacIntyre NEXT Generation Refiner / Conches are fitted with Siemens PLC control incorporating enhanced software for flexible running, including remote administration diagnostics, remote commissioning and remote service support - a timely development in times of on-going travel restrictions.  

Sets New Low Maintenance and Energy Efficiency Benchmark

“The NEXT Generation Refiner / Conche sets a new benchmark in terms of low maintenance, energy efficiency and production efficacy for manufacturers wishing to produce high quality chocolate and confectionery products,” says Joe Gorman, managing director, MacIntyre Chocolate Systems. "Maximum capacity with minimum energy consumption and zero unnecessary waste have been the guiding principles in the design of the NEXT Generation Refiner / Conche, maintaining its position as the premium method of chocolate processing."

The NEXT Generation Refiner / Conches feature a convenient removable, easy clean, stainless steel hopper. Steel end plates replace the old cast ends of the Refiner / Conches. Feed pipes are included for intake of liquid cocoa liquor, cocoa butter or fat, allowing customers to easily connect from their liquid raw material tanks to the Refiner / Conche. Complete systems from Block Melting through to final Storage can also be supplied inclusive of full automation. All new models benefit from the easy to install cable harnesses, hygienic cable trays and include safety features for easy installation.

Versatile Product Manufacture and Rework

The MacIntyre Refiner / Conche is the market leader for production of high quality pure chocolate, compounds, cremes, spreads, nut pastes and pralines, for example. Increasingly this versatile machine is now being used for reworking products too; chocolate bars with nuts, crème filled bars, sugar coated lentils and chocolate covered nuts, all can be reworked in the MacIntyre Refiner / Conche. Manufactured in Arbroath, Scotland, the NEXT Generation Refiner / Conche is available through MacIntyre global network of distributors and agents.

More flexible control

With the New Generation Range, MacIntyre has expanded the capability of the Refiner / Conche PLC software to include multi-step programming. A product specific set of process parameters or 'recipes' can be stored in the PLC allowing the correct set of process parameters for a given product to be used with a single touch of the control panel screen.

The New Generation Refiner / Conche's control panel screen also features a comprehensive suite of control and monitoring functions including maintenance, storage and download of actual run data. As well as accurate control of water and product temperatures, the new generation range features a 'non-contact' transducer which is used to control and monitor the system's refining pressure, creating a virtual scale on the machine's control panel.

New design

With the New Generation Refiner / Conche range, MacIntyre introduces its first machines made using advanced technology for castings with increased strength and durability. The introduction of a pressurized air seal, and redesigned sealing assemblies.
