Compared to other systems for the production of chocolate- and confectionery masses, the system Rumba® is characterized by reduced requirements for energy, cooling water and space as well as considerably shortened processing times, since the grinding and liquid-conching processes run simultaneously. The system Rumba® also allows you to save on cocoa butter/fats and/or lecithin.
Thanks to the modular design, the plant is laid out in exact accordance with your current needs. Future expansion of the plants is simple.
In addition to standard chocolates and current confectionery masses, you can also produce specialties such as diet chocolate or chocolate with different types of sugar and nutritive sweetener.
Rumba® stands for an innovative, unique way to make chocolate. Now you're just three steps away from your own chocolate.
- Pre-grinding of sugar and milk powder to less than 200 µm particle size or use of pre-ground sugar
- Melting the cocoa butter and cocoa mass, mixing and dry conching of the mass
- Wet conching and grinding of the chocolate mass for continuous development of aroma and flavor.
Efficient process control guarantees the highest quality and unerring reproducibility.
Intensive dry conching with a low cocoa butter content reduces moisture content and removes undesirable odors and flavors for got-to-have-it taste and luscious aroma. Try it!
Concurrent wet conching and wet fine grinding result in homogeneous products with a very narrow particle size distribution. Let it melt in your mouth!
Final wet fine grinding in circulation results in the desired quality with the greatest possible flexibility. Whether dark, white or brown, your chocolate will become a sought-after treat.
