Toper 15kg Gas Coffee Roaster
£22,867.00 ( £27,440.40 Including Vat )
The Toper 15kg Gas coffee roaster is the ideal roaster when you have short periods of heavy demand, you can roast upto 15kg of Green coffee at once, and have a roast of coffee cooling off  in the tray at the same time. Operation is straight forward, with controls for the drum/exhaust fan to be on or off, heating to be on or off and the cooling tray on/off. A digital thermostat displays the bean mass temperature, and can be set to your required top temperature - which when reached will issue an audible alert and turn off the heat until the temperature drops below it. Roast progression can be checked via the site glass and also the coffee picker, the roasted coffee is then released by pulling up on the exhaust gate handle.

TKMSX Shop Roasters are now fitted with a swing arm for the controls as standard, for the listed price you receive manual push button controls to operate the roaster. Alternatively you can pay extra to have the Touch Profile System fitted.Manual push button version does not connect to computers, an optional Data bridge can be purchased to do this. When the Touch Profile system is purchased this includes an ethernet cable to connect the roaster temperature probe information to a computer.

As standard these roasters now have three exhaust outlets, one 200mm for drum exhaust, two 100mm for cooling exhaust. Cooling exhaust can be combined but must be run outside of the building.

Warranty is twelve months parts and labour Warranty, in the event of a fault we will obtain a replacement part and send it to you and then arrange for someone to fit it. If you are going to require rapid repairs you are strongly advised to make use of local engineers, the majority of commercial espresso machine engineers will be able to work on these machines - and the most likely failure is the drum or fan motors which are easy to replace and readily available from UK motor specialists.

The Gas Roaster requires 200mm Aluminium Ducting venting outside, this ducting is also the flue for the gas burner. When you have the gas burner commissioned by a gas safe engineer, ensure they check your ducting is suitable as a flue for the burner. Gas burners consume oxygen, so you should always be roasting in a well ventilated room. As with any gas burning appliance a carbon monoxide detector is strongly advised.

Toper Roaster Brochure

Ducting Requirements

All makes of coffee roasters and oxidizers have a blower mounted inside which forces exhaust air into the ducting. The oils and residues in the exhaust air are flammable. In the event of a ducting/flue fire, the internal duct temperatures can exceed 1000° F (538°C), which could cause nearby combustible materials to ignite. For this reason, it is advised to use at least stainless steel double wall positive pressure grease ducting (UL certified for USA or CE for European Union). 

ROASTER: Ducting must be suitable for 1000°F (538°C) continuous and 1400°F (760°C) intermittent operating temperatures.

Note: Under no circumstances should Class B or Spiral-wrap ducting be purchased.

The exhaust system must be designed to operate with a static flue pressure between positive 0.25”WC and negative 0.15”WC at the exhaust of the roaster while in operation.

Designing an exhaust system requires a trained professional to calculate the efficiency of the system and proper size of duct. The ducting must be of sufficient diameter to accommodate the ACFM (actual cubic feet per minute) or ACMH (actual cubic meters per hour) of airflow. A knowledgeable Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC) contractor can assist you with the best ducting layout for your site.

It is the responsibility of the roaster purchaser to ensure they fit adequate ducting that complies with regional regulations, we can supply details of experienced roaster consultants who can provide guidance on the entire roaster location, fitting and ducting as well as additional back up support. The rates vary depending on requirements and you would need to contact them first to confirm costs and to arrange to pay them seperately for this service.

Normal turnaround from a confirmed order is 6 to 8 weeks, although Toper do sometimes have stock available or being built for stock so it is always worth contacting us to confirm a delivery time on any specific model. Prices include crated delivery to your premises only, removing the roaster from the crate and into your premises will be at your own cost. Fitting suitable extraction, connecting to electricity and gas supplies as required will also be at your cost. Warranty covers non-wearing parts only, should an issue arise a replacement part will be sent to you. Warranty does not include issues caused by failure to clean the roaster, especially where chaff is allowed to build up or where the fan is not cleaned as per the roaster manual specification. All the general maintenance instructions in the Toper user manual should be followed in full, issues caused by failure to perform tasks such as drum alignment as per the manufacturers instructions will be full chargeable to resolve.
