Coffee is roasted in a roasting drum perforated only in the rear section, to ensure effective air flow. Roasting capacity is 600–3,000 kg coffee per hour.
INNOVA machinery is customisable, so can be adapted to product and environmental characteristics and the space available for each project.
INNOVA roasters can operate at half or full nominal load, at the same roasting temperature and producing the same roast profile. To achieve this, the PLC allows unlimited roast profiles that are automatically adjusted so they can be replicated exactly from one cycle to the next.
Heat is mainly transferred by convection, although there is also some conduction. Convection allows quicker and more homogeneous roasts, and develops larger beans.
The INNOVA range has been designed for multiple purposes, allowing roast profiles from espresso to instant coffee, and enabling a high level of refinement. Due to this functional flexibility, INNOVA roasters are adaptable enough to allow roasts of various sizes and characteristics in the same roasting cycle (blends).

WHAT ARE THE MAIN FEATURES OF THE ‘INNOVA’ RANGE


Roast time in INNOVA range roasters is 8–20 minutes. Short roast times accentuate acidity in the coffee bean, and longer roasts promote body. All roasters in the range can operate at half or full nominal load, and the PLC adjusts times and temperatures for a consistent roast profile.

  • Homogeneous colour thanks to the method of heating the coffee bean, which is mainly convection (heat transfer from hot air) with some conduction (heat transfer from the roasting drum)
  • Carbon steel or food grade stainless steel roasting drum with a variety of mixing paddles available in customised materials. Coffee moved evenly and carefully in the roasting drum to prevent damage to the bean. There are no perforations in the cylindrical part of the roasting drum, just the base, to facilitate air flow through the coffee beans. The roasting drum is double-walled, creating an insulating air chamber that minimises heat transfer by conduction.
  • Completely retractable roasting drum door with easy mechanical operation, enabling full access to the roasting drum within a few minutes to facilitate maintenance.
  • Degrees of roast, from light to dark, with the same capacity per cycle.
  • Short and long roast times, with the same capacity per cycle.
  • Weight loss depends on the moisture level in the green coffee bean, and can be compensated by the quenching system at the end of the roasting process.
  • Rapid and careful cooling to prevent damage to the coffee bean
  • Roasting and cooling cycles are synchronised and occur simultaneously
  • Roasters equipped with evacuation cyclones for the chaff, which can be collected or burnt

WHY CHOOSE THE ‘INNOVA’ RANGE?


The INNOVA range is the best solution for flexible, high-quality batches and large volumes. Robust design and manufacture for functionality and reliability of use. The INNOVA range can process any roast profile.
All components of the INNOVA range roasters are controlled by PLC, with SIEMENS or ROCKWELL HMI and local area network or internet PC SCADA for remote access. User interface which is easy to use, accessible and customisable at all times.
There is no limit to the number of recipes that can be stored by the control system, so the roasting process can be adapted to the various roasting profiles required by the production program
INNOVA range software includes a product traceability system, which enables batch numbers and process quality to be managed.
Temperature curves and process parameters are visualised and stored in each roasting cycle.

WHAT SPECIFIC FEATURES ARE INCLUDED?


The machinery ensures high levels of performance and safety during operation.

  • Compliance with local safety regulations related to the machinery, products and staff operating the roaster Potential to update parameters in response to new regulations in the future
  • Maintenance and repair protocol. Immediate availability of standard parts that affect machine safety; easy and economical maintenance.
  • Quick and easy access to clean the roaster and replace worn parts.
  • Temperature and air pressure sensors installed in roaster heat sources and air ducts, to control roaster heat balance and prevent overheating and heat venting.
  • Automated fire prevention systems, water injectors and burner operation monitoring.
  • Energy-saving devices installed include hot air recirculation, preheating green coffee, use of renewable energy sources, low-emission mixed electronic burners, catalysts and cleaning procedures using closed-loop water systems.
