Chocolate Factory Machines from Apex
Apex chocolate machines are fully automated to produce the exact application you need for your chocolate factory. A few examples include:
- A chocolate conche machine to finely grind chocolate mass.
- A chocolate ball mill machine to finely mill chocolate mass and admixture to a required fineness through a process of friction and impact produced between the steel balls and the chocolate material inside a vertical cylinder.
- A fat melting tank is one of the main machines used in the production of chocolate and is used to melt chocolate mass.
- A chocolate delivery mass pump is designed to deliver mass chocolate and can be used individually or combined with a production line to provide mass feeding. Different models are available with different flow rates for customers to choose from.
- Our chocolate holding tank is designed with automatic temperature control to store finely ground chocolate at a constant temperature. Our chocolate mass holding tanks come in sizes from 2 to 10 tons according to your storage requirements.
- Our continuous chocolate tempering machine is designed to give chocolates a shiny gloss, good taste, and longer shelf life by using precise temperature control to cause the molecular crystals in chocolate to maintain a uniform structure.
Commercial Chocolate Equipment
Our commercial chocolate equipment is designed and manufactured to produce mass products for commercial purposes and includes automated machines such as an aligner feeder machine that receives and aligns chocolate products into one line for wrapping. An aerating machine can be applied to your existing production line for the aeration of chocolate products that reduce the use of materials and improves the taste of the chocolate. In other words, we can make basically any type of commercial chocolate equipment for any type of operation you may have.
