Are cooling tunnels usually included with a larger enrobing system, or can they be purchased separately?

Cooling tunnels are always considered to be a separate purchase from the enrobing system because there is no one-size-fits-all rule to determining the technical requirements for the tunnel. The combination of temperature, belt width, tunnel length, and belt speed determine the throughput of the system (units/hour).

In general, the longer the tunnel (all other things being equal) the faster you can run the belt, which means greater throughput. WIth a short tunnel you have to run the product through more slowly to cool properly, which reduces throughput. 

Specifying the tunnel is a separate exercise. 

If you already have an enrober, the technical challenge for the cooling tunnel is to match the entry section of the tunnel to the exit section of the enrober. This often requires custom engineering.

Selmi cooling tunnels usually include an enrobing section. We are able to offer cooling tunnels and erobers separately if needed. We offer enrobing sections and cooling tunnels that are 20cm, 30cm and 40cm wide with various lengths.

When setting up a new installation we always sell a cooling tunnel with the enrober. We also sell just cooling tunnels if a customer already has an enrober. The opposite of the is also true.
