Chocolate drops depositing line is capable of producing tiny chocolate chips with chocolate tails on top, as well as making bigger chocolate drops and chocolate buttons in a variable production range.


Chocolate Drops Depositor

The traditional belt-lifting type Chocolate chips depositor machine is designed to produce chocolate chips of 0.1 grams to 5 grams with 20 strokes per minute. The body of this chocolate chips depositing line has equipped with a double-jacketed chocolate hopper which is manufactured in food grade stainless steel 304 material, it is attached with Omron/Autonics temperature controller to keep the hopper itself warm at previous set value.

Chocolate driving pistons are mounted on two supporting plates in each side of chocolate dispensing system, and they are controlled by two pneumatic cylinders or customized servo motors, so the forward and backward moving distance of pistons can be controlled, thus the chocolate chips weight can be changed accordingly.

Chocolate chips will deposit on top of the food grade belt conveyor whose width ranges from 400mm to 1200mm. The width and length of cooling tunnel can be customized as required.

Features of Chocolate Drops Depositing Line


Belt-Lifting Type Chocolate Chips Depositor

Belt-lifting chocolate chips depositor machine is the traditional type which is mostly used for depositing extremely small chips with chocolate tails on top. The small tail is dragged by the viscosity of the chocolate itself during the falling onto the belt conveyor.

A powerful belt lifting cylinder installed right under the chips depositor hopper, its movement is accurately associated with the cooling tunnel conveyor and chips depositing actions to form the chocolate chips and chocolate buttons.

The jacketed depositing hopper has enclosed with a hot water circulating system and fix speed chocolate mixing agitator to ensure the entire system warm and easy for cleaning chocolate out from the hopper while stop production.

Belt conveyor type chocolate cooling tunnel is equipped for immediately chocolate chips cooling purpose, customized length is available for adapting different size workshop.

Rotary Chocolate Drops Depositing Line

New Rotation chocolate drops making machine is designed to meet the increased chocolate coins / Chocolate drops production demand.

Unlike the belt-lifting chocolate drops depositor, this new model has no traditional chocolate dispensing plate, instead of that, it is built with a stainless steel rotary chocolate drops depositing drum with lots of cavities on surface and a unique chocolate dispensing system inside the drum. With this rotary chocolate drops depositor drum, chocolate mass could be evenly spread inside and the chocolate drips on the belt through the small cavities along with the drum’s rotation.

Thanks to the high efficiency of the rolling and dispensing system, this rotation chocolate drops depositor is capable of producing 300-700kg chocolate drops or chocolate buttons per hour.

The Entire Production Line To Make Compound Chocolate Drops

Sugar Grinding Machine

Sugar is one content widely used in chocolate compound recipe. Granulated sugar is not suitable to use because it may stuck inside the gaps between lining bars of the chocolate conche and generate a big block stuck the discharging valve.

Using sugar grinder machine to crush the rough granulated sugar into 60-80 meshes powderd sugar in advance will prevent the conche machine from mechanical failure, and it will significantly reduce the refining duration.

Chocolate Melting Tank

Cocoa fat and chocolate block is solid at room temperature, it is a necessary process to melt the cocoa fat before delivering it into the chocolate conche machine, chocolate melanger and chocolate ball mill machine.

The chocolate melting tank is built with hot water flowing grid inside the cylinder and the jacketed stucture, thus the chocolate could be fast and evenly melted.

Chocolate Conching Machine

Chocolate conching machine is the core equipment in the chocolate making industry. Chocolate conche is built with dozens of blades mounted on the umbrella shape blades carrier and hundreds of thin lining bars on the inner wall of the conche’s cylinder.

The unique blades tensioning system will expand or shrink the umbrella blades carrier, the blades mounted on the carrier thus expand or shrink synchronously to contact or move away from the fixed lining bars. The continuously frictions between blades and lining bars can fine grind the chocolate raw materials into 20-25 microns.

Chocolate Storage Tank

Chocolate paste needs to be stored and continuously mixing for a better texture result, chocolate storage tank is built for this very purpose.

Each chocolate storage tank has a stirring paddle inside and the paddle is driven by a three-phase asynchronous motor, the motor could be mounted at topside of the lids or under the tank. Paddle continuously stirring at a certain speed and chocolate paste will be evenly mixed and this movement will get rid of the residual bad smell.


Chocolate Pump

Chocolate delivering pump is one of the essential chocolate equipment.

It is used everywhere in the entire industrial scale chocolate production, it can transfer melted cocoa fat from the melting tank to the refining machines like chocolate conche and ball miller machine, from these refining equipment to the storate tanks and tempering machine, and finally deliver chocolate to the hoppers of chocolate molding line, chocolate chips depositing line, chocolate enrobing line and many other chocolate processing machines.

Chocolate Drops Depositing Line

Chocolate drops are deposited and formed shape by the automatic chocolate drops depositing line.

For the traditionally belt-lifting type chocolate chips depositing line, the chocolate pump will supply chocolate periodically inside the hoppers of chocolate drops depositor according to the signals coming from the chocolate detecting sensor. Chocolate will goes through the multiple layer dispensing plate and get deposited onto the belt conveyor.

For the new rotation chocolate drops depositing line, chocolate will be continuously delivered into the unique chocolate dispensing roller for forming drops directly on the moving belt conveyor.

Multihead Weighing & Vertical Packaging Machine

Z-shape products lifting machine is used to deliver the final chocolate drops on the multihead weigher machine.

The multihead weigher machine is capable of accurately weighing the chocolate drops at target weight and dosing them into the conical products collector on top of the vertical packaging machine.

Vertical packaging machine is capable of fast packaging the chocolate drops and sealing the bags.

A small bags deliver conveyor connected under the vertical wrapping machine will transfer the bags to the downstream carton packing system.
