The constant research and development focused on efficiency and pursuit of quality, led the company to the creation of IMF’s integrated roaster, chaff collector, afterburner, destoner and loader which requires less operating space compared to the conventional roasters using separated accessory systems. It’s possible to roast tons of coffee, batch after batch, and still rely on even consistency of each roasting profile, regardless of whether it’s the first or the last batch of the day. The touch-screen PLC automatically controls every stage of the roasting process from the loading operations of the green coffee beans in silos to the roasting, cooling, destoning stages, up to the final roasted coffee storage in silos.
Thanks to the technology created by our engineers, IMF roasters produce low emissions and have a reduced environmental impact. During the roasting process, these roasting machines can save at least 30% of fuel, compared to traditional burners, using a single burner which warms the roasting air and at the same time emits emissions. The smoke leave the roaster through a steel duct entering the combustion chamber where the dust and emissions are dropped below European law limits without the aid of additional knocking down systems.
Moreover, thanks to thirty years of experience of Alessandro Garbin, IMF CEO, the company is able to consult on designing plants besides teaching on the roasting process.
