Pre-Refiners reduces not only the amount of time needed for refining but also the viscosity of your chocolate by ensuring a more even particle size
Adding a 2 or 4 roll pre-refiner to your production set up is an economic way to increase production and decrease labor costs

Also known as two-roll or four-roll pre-refiners, turn cocoa nibs into a flake-like paste. This then reduces the amount of refining time needed and the viscosity of your chocolate by ensuring a more even particle size.
A stand out feature of our pre-refiners is that thanks to the slow speed, the flake-like paste never reaches above 30-35 degrees, without chilling needed. This avoids overheating which can affect the final flavor of your product.
Using a pre-refiner to process cocoa nibs prior to refining is an economic way to increase production and decrease labor costs. It is the perfect first step for an artisan producer to increase their production capabilities.
The distance between the rolls is adjustable and the pre-refiner is provided with a conveyor for product discharge.
