"The reason for my question about the exact supply voltage in the new location is that 208V 'single phase' is really two phases of a three phase supply, whereas 240V single phase is a true single phase.
If you have 208V from two legs of a…"
"And to add to my last question: is the voltage in the location that you are moving to 120/240V or 120/208V.
Is the selmi set up for 208V 240V or 480V three phase?
208 and 240 often get confused or are (mistakenly) considered the same thing.
"I forgot, there is one additional option: a 'static phase converter'. This is electrically similar to a VSD set to fixed frequency with all of the necessary filtering to run a generic three phase load. Anywhere a rotary converter can…"
"Before you go down the path of 'synthesizing' 3 phase power from a single phase source, the first thing you should do is contact Selmi and find out how much it would cost to convert the machine for single phase operation. I found a…"
"For what its worth, you can often find 'specification sheets' for callebaut products online. Just search for "product name specification". The spec sheet will often include both the % cocoa mass and the % non-fat cocoa…"
The '% cocoa mass' includes chocolate liquor and cocoa butter, so any combination of the two would remain '100% cocoa mass'. As you add cocoa butter, the '% non-fat cocoa solids' and intensity of…"
"Please see my parts list above for a cheaper/more diy solution. 9 blades $25, rod $10, handles $14, spacers $7, nuts $4, giving a spacing of 1.375". You would need to pay about $7 more for the spacers (and stack pairs) to get…"
"Interesting about the pizza wheels getting caught. I guess I got lucky with the pizza blades that I selected. They have a hub in the center, about 1/8" thick and 3/4" in diameter, with a 3/8" hole. They ride perfectly on…"
"Thanks for posting your paper.
I am curious about how temperatures above the melting point of the cocoa butter factor in. For 'simple' compounds, once you have heated the material above the melting point there can be no solid phase…"
Could you please expand on the point about "...as they work on the difference between a melting temperature and a working temperature. If your max working temp is 42C then you might not have enough temperature differential to form…"
"I have not had good luck with rolling cutters for ganache; the ganache tends to stick to the side of the roller. However another chocolate life member has pictures showing good luck...as well as their home-made roller cutters.…"
Here are a couple of photos. First the unit opened to see the inside.
While it looks like a mess of wires, the setup is actually very simple.
You have two power cords, each with a white, a black and a green. One cord…"
"Rather than a _guitar_ cutter, I made what is best called a _washtub bass_ cutter.
I used the best $25 hacksaw frame sold at home depot, and stretched stainless steel wire across the prongs that hold the blade.
The trick is to get a saw with…"
"I used a Fuji PXR3 unit. I do not recall the exact ordering code; the full part number describes the inputs and outputs. The unit that I ordered was set up for thermocouple input and SSR output.
The solid state relay was a…"
I am using a similar setup to this, and can report my experiences.
1) Thanks for the link to the buffet warmer that doesn't need water. My current system uses a water bath. This has not been a problem, since the temperature…"
