Low end enrobing options

Hi, I am looking at options for increasing production of enrobed pieces. Currently I use a small chocovision machine, and hand dip pieces that I cut from a slab using a roller or wires.  I can dip perhaps 200 pieces per hour, but doing so is exhausting. Is there an intermediate place between hand enrobing and the smallest of the likes of the FBM prima with enrober or the Perfect Enro-6?  I would like to have: a take-off belt detailer ability to do at least 400 pieces per hour with reduced work…See More

Jonathan Edelson replied to Melanie Boudar's discussion Converting from 3 phase to single phase
"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…"

Jonathan Edelson replied to Melanie Boudar's discussion Converting from 3 phase to single phase
"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. 480V is…"

Jonathan Edelson replied to Melanie Boudar's discussion Converting from 3 phase to single phase
"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…"

Jonathan Edelson replied to Melanie Boudar's discussion Converting from 3 phase to single phase
"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…"
