As a professional chocolatier, you know it: melting chocolate is no simple task. The smoother the melting process, the higher the quality of the final product. And that superior result? That's exactly what you strive for.

Betec's melting tanks, designed for optimal temperature control and efficiency, ensure perfectly melted chocolate while preserving taste and aroma. Discover the power of Betec technology.

That's why Betec designed a series of innovative, robust melting machines. These ensure a careful, efficient melting process with meticulous control over temperature. As a result, your end product attains an optimal structure and composition. Meanwhile, Betec machines also reduce the energy consumption of your production.

Curious about all these benefits? Below, we're happy to list them for you.

1. You melt and store your chocolate at the optimal temperature

Each Betec melting tank is equipped with an insulated, double-walled water jacket, a central control panel with a digital thermostat, a mechanical safety thermostat, and a robust stirring mechanism with bottom and side scrapers. This allows you to set the melting temperature very precisely, and the temperature remains perfectly consistent throughout the entire melting and storing process. Moreover, the tank heats the chocolate evenly, without the risk of overheating.

The efficient agitator in Betec's melting tank, equipped with side and bottom scrapers, facilitates a quick and uniform melting process, enabling effortless production of liquid chocolate.

Thanks to this technology:

  • retains your chocolate's excellent taste and aroma
  • attains the perfect viscosity, texture, and shine


2. You work faster and more efficiently

Endlessly waiting for your chocolate to melt? That's a thing of the past with Betec melting tanks. The stirring mechanism is equipped with side and bottom scrapers, making the melting tanks hyper-efficient. In no time, they provide flavorful, liquid chocolate, allowing you to start your work effortlessly.

Manual tap at the front of the melting tank for chocolate dispensing, ensuring a seamless production process and allowing you to start working immediately.

You can drain the chocolate through the manual tap at the front of the tank. Alternatively, you can opt for a built-in, water-heated chocolate pump, allowing the chocolate to flow automatically through heated pipelines to the next machine in your production line.

Extra convenient: the motor of the melting tank is located at the bottom. This design allows maximum accessibility to the top, saving you valuable time when cleaning or maintaining the machine. All Betec melting tanks comply with the strictest requirements and standards for food safety. They are made from high-quality, stainless steel (AISI 304), and all seams are carefully welded and polished. This makes your melting tank ultra-hygienic and aesthetically pleasing.
