UNIQUE NEW CONCEPT

This roaster utilizes a unique new concept that constantly and continuously produces evenly cooked beans. The beans are cooked at about 375 for 1 hour, then enter a steeping chamber and continue to be cooked by steam for an additional hour, exiting the steeping chamber at 250. The newest model crushes the beans as they roast. Both roaster models are completely automatic. Powered by electricity, the unit heats oil which transfers heat to an inside heating chamber to roast beans. Due to the incline of the roaster, the oil is self-circulating back to the heat chamber. It has the capacity to cook 6,000 lbs. of product in a 24-hour period. It can run 24 hours/day, 7 days/week, 365 days/year.

 

Ideal for individual farm operation

Superior feed for dairy, beef, hogs, sheep, poultry, etc.

Process maintains nutritional value of beans, benefiting more milk production

Powered by electricity (not flame)

Galvanized steel exterior over fiberglass body

Adjustable temperature control / Completely automatic

Teflon bars on auger prevent steel contact; thus no steel shavings in feed

 

 

Testing: This unit was tested at the U.S. Dairy Forage Center, University of Wisconsin, 8822 Highway 78, Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. See their letter attesting to the value of properly roasted soybeans. The Forage Center has since purchased a roaster.
