Lekos designs and manufactures individual decrystalizers which are placed on the return pipe of chocolate mass into storage tank.
Decrystalizer consists of longitudinal steel pipe system, placed inside steel drum. Chocolate mass is at the input distributed to these pipes. Warm water circulates in the drum usually at 52-55°C. Tempered mass, which is returned back to storage tank, is heated to a temperature of 43-45°C by passing through decrystalizer. At this temperature, 100% of the cocoa butter crystals are melted and mass is ready to tempering process again.
Decrystalizers for this purpose are available with maximum capacity from 150 to 5 000 kg per hour.
Lekos delivers decrystalizers ready to the warm water connection by customer or equipped with own water circuit with water heating and automatic set water temperature regulation in the circuit.
