In HOT AIR ROASTING vs DRUM ROAST
An example that has already proven itself in practice explains the procedure for designing the electric heating system for a roasting machine with a batch size of 5 kg. This was equipped with a modern electric air heater. The functionality is visualized in the image below. The drum roaster is controlled via the parameters of temperature, the air volume and drum speed. The software of the roasting machine regulates the heating output and the exhaust fan in such a way that the roasting process exactly follows the speci ed temperature pro le of the roasting curve. The two blowers operate in a “master/slave” mode to ensure that there is always a negative pressure or a controlled draft in the roasting machine. The exhaust air blower works in master mode. The bean temperature, which is measured directly at the bean in the drum via a sensor, is decisive for temperature control. In addition, the outlet temperature is also monitored. This is measured before the exhaust fan. The hot air inlet temperature is also checked and measured on the air heater. In order to prevent overheating of the heating element even in the case of faulty operation, it is recom- mended to install an air ow meter or pressure sensor in front of the air heater. This ensures that su cient air- flows through the roasting machine before switching on the air heater. An important prerequisite for the feasibility of the process is the precise control of the air volume or the blower and the temperature of the air heater. Blowers and air heaters must therefore be selected that can be precisely controlled and regulated and matched to the speci c design of the roasting machine in terms of performance and dimensions. Mathematical Design of the Heating System In order to de ne the appropriate electrical heating system, the required heating output must be calculated in advance. The following variables are required as a basis for the calculation: „ Design,structureanddimensionsoftheroastingmachine „ Insulationoftheroastingmachineandtypeofinsulationmaterial,itsthicknessanditsthermal conductivity λ [W⁄m*K] „ Batchsizeinkilograms[kg] „ Maximumheatingtemperature(dependingonthedesignoftheroastingmachine)indegreesCelsius[°C] „ Temperatureontheoutputfanaftertheheatingphaseoftheroaster „ Maximumairvolume owV̇ instandardliterperminute[slpm] „ Approx.roastingtimeinminutes[min] The following graphic illustrates this example calculation:

As someone who has installed more than 50 coffee roasters in various European countries, this is the first thing I will tell you. You can find the best chimney and gas burner solution by following the questions below. Do you have neighbors who will be disturbed by flue gas? If you are going to start somewhere in the city center, you may need to buy an afterburner. This will not be necessary in areas far from settlements or where you have tolerant neighbors. However, keep in mind that roasting coffee produces a lot of smoke. I advise you to stay away from solutions such as smoke filters. It will cause you to pay twice for the same job. You can see the video of a customer who used afterburner after getting complaints from his neighbors with the smoke filter solution. Country: Norway For a good chimney installation, you can see the example of our customer from Berlin below What are the most important points in the chimney structure? - Double and insulated parts passing through the building wall - Having an openable lid for cleaning at the bottom Dätgen DB-1 Afterburner is working cleanly right after a German pharmacy (Apotheke).
