The Fbm KLEEGO Conche and Melting Tank is a new and innovative chocolate machine with dual functionality, filling two important needs of craft bean to bar chocolate makers, incorporating a 50 kg melting tank and a 35 kg capacity conche.
The Kleego has an integrated pump making it versatile for use in general chocolate production and it has an optional optical sensor to automatically maintain the proper quantity of chocolate in the working bowl of a tempering machine. It incorporates a high speed 35k conche that addresses texture and flavor development. Typical texture and flavor development can take days in a stone wet grinder yet the Kleego can accomplish the conching process in hours! Chocolate can then be pumped into a container for aging or into a tempering machine.
The Kleego conching assembly is top mounted and removable. Its custom digital control panel provides precise, repeatable control over the important parameters of conching.

Kleego is Fbm's newest innovation in modular chocolate machines and designed specifically for artisan chocolate professionals.
