Cocoa powder manufacturing process
In the cocoa powder production line, the main manufacturing process of cocoa powder and corresponding products are as follows:
Cocoa bean roasting (roasted cocoa beans), cocoa bean peeling (cocoa nibs), cocoa paste grinding (cocoa paste/ cacao liquor), oil pressing (cocoa butter and cocoa oil cake), and powder grinding (cocoa powder), packed cocoa powder
Specifically, after the cocoa beans are roasted and peeled, they are ground to obtain the cocoa paste. The cocoa paste is then pressed to remove the cocoa butter and obtain the cocoa cake. The brownish-red powder received by grinding the cocoa cake and screening is cocoa powder.
Main machines of cocoa powder production line
Cacao bean roaster
The continuous cocoa bean roaster machine can realize continuous roasting and cooling. The output can reach 200-1000kg per hour. It has automatic temperature control and can reach ideal roasting and cooling effect.
Cocoa bean peeling machine
The peeling roller in the cocoa bean peeling machine rolls to peel the cocoa beans. The ventilator sucks the peeled skin out of the machine. The peeled cocoa bean kernel is discharged automatically.
Cocoa nibs grinding machine
The cocoa bean grinding machine can grind the nibs into a fine cocoa paste through the two grinding discs inside the machine. The cocoa paste or cocoa liquor has super fineness.
Hydraulic oil press
The hydraulic oil press can extract cocoa butter from the cocoa liquor through the pressure of hydraulic oil. The oil residue is the cocoa butter cake, which can be further processed to get cocoa powder.
Cocoa cake crusher machine
The cocoa cake crusher machine can crush cocoa butter cake into smaller parts, and then get small-sized materials from screening. The machine is also suitable for crushing animal bones. The processed particles can be used for further grinding.
Cocoa powder grinding machine
The cocoa powder grinding machine is made of stainless steel. The cocoa nibs in the machine are cut of the cutters. After grinding, the particles become smaller step by step. The particle size can be adjusted by changing the mesh screens.
Cocoa powder packaging machine
The final step is the packaging. The cocoa powder packaging machine is suitable for packing cocoa powder.
