ChocoMa 2MP 32 Wax Enrober - Stainless without Wax Tank (full wax coating - cheese)
(full wax coating - cheese)
Introduction_x005F_x000D_ Since_x005F_x000D_ the early 1990’s the Chocoma 2MPWAX systems have been in operation_x005F_x000D_ across the world. The system has not only replaced the labour intensive_x005F_x000D_ manual waxing process, but also provided increased capacity by means of_x005F_x000D_ the dedicated cheese waxing system. Compared to automatic systems,_x005F_x000D_ which includes robotic handling of cheeses, the Chocoma 2MPWAX is a low_x005F_x000D_ cost system, which offers a short payback time.
_x005F_x000D_ Typical cheese_x005F_x000D_ sizes range from 50 gms to 2.500 gms. The cheese all get a full coating_x005F_x000D_ (bottom included) and a uniform appearance from a single pass through_x005F_x000D_ the waxing chamber. A typical throughput for 200 gm mini truckles is 70_x005F_x000D_ pieces per minute.
_x005F_x000D_ Wheels or half wheels larger than 2.5 kg can_x005F_x000D_ usually be coated too. However, depending on the kind of cheese and_x005F_x000D_ specific operating parameters double coating may be necessary.
_x005F_x000D_ The_x005F_x000D_ 2MPWAX system is designed to meet the operational conditions faced by_x005F_x000D_ most small and medium sized manufactures. In order to be able to coat_x005F_x000D_ with different colours of wax, the 2MPWAX system employs wheel mobile_x005F_x000D_ wax tanks, quick change pump and grill belt assemblies to enable fast_x005F_x000D_ colour changes.
_x005F_x000D_ In practise, clear wax can be used in the_x005F_x000D_ morning, orange wax in the middle of the day, and finally red wax by_x005F_x000D_ the end of the day – or any other colours.
Maximum_x005F_x000D_ height of a cheese to be completely coated in a single pass is 110 mm._x005F_x000D_ Cheeses higher than 110 mm will need a double pass._x005F_x000D_
Furthermore, the cheese to be waxed should meet the following_x005F_x000D_ specification:_x005F_x000D_
- The cheese would need to be dry when presented to the_x005F_x000D_ machine. _x005F_x000D_
- The cheese should preferably be cut. If extrude it has to_x005F_x000D_ be completely relaxed. _x005F_x000D_
- The cheese would need to have a core temperature of between_x005F_x000D_ 2-5°C. _x005F_x000D_
- The cheese must have a reasonably flat bottom. _x005F_x000D_
- The cheese should not crumble in the operative’s hands. _x005F_x000D_
Wheels_x005F_x000D_ or half wheels up to 5,0 kg (diameter 300 mm x 150 mm high) are wax_x005F_x000D_ coated too by means of double coating. However, Chocoma cannot_x005F_x000D_ offer a guarantee for a smooth and uniform appearance for bigger_x005F_x000D_ cheeses that need a double pass._x005F_x000D_
Apart from the waxing machine at least one wax tank and a_x005F_x000D_ take-off table will be needed – alternatively a cooling tunnel._x005F_x000D_
