Global Specialty Coffee Expo 2017 & Interpack 2017; a momentous lineup

Mar '17

Modern Process Equipment (MPE) is excited for a momentous lineup of shows this year; most notably Interpack 2017 and Global Specialty Coffee Expo 2017 (check mpechicago.com for a complete listing).

For over 60 years, MPE has built the finest array of commercial and industrial coffee grinders in the world. This year is no exception in the level of innovation MPE brings to the industry. The IMD.2 800 Series grinder makes its worldwide debut at Interpack 2017; the first of its kind to implement independent drive motors for each roll. Users can electronically customize each roll’s speed to achieve a range of ratios from 1:1 to 1:4. The IMD.2 800 Series’ automated recipe-driven control system with precision servo gap control allows for micro fine adjustments in 10-micron increments. This heightened precision in gap control coupled with individually adjustable roller speeds is beneficial for espresso pod and capsule applications; effectively engineering a perfect, repeatable grind. Genuine thru-roller water-cooling ensures a continuous flow of cool water through all rolls and bearings, keeping them cool. This stabilizes tolerances and ensures perfect parallel operation—even during periods of extended operation. MPE will also bring its 3” Chain-Vey system, built for unsurpassed preservation of coffee aromatics during conveyance. Its gas-tight design and nitrogen-purge capabilities are great for Turkish coffee, pod, and capsule makers. For an up-close demonstration at Interpack 2017 visit booth A04 in Hall 2.

The MPE booth at Global Specialty Coffee Expo 2017 will feature the GPX.WCI and SRM 4555 coffee grinders along with MPE’s 3” Chain-Vey system. The versatile water-cooled GPX.WCI stands beautifully with its stainless steel hopper and black, blue, and polished steel exterior. Capable of grinding between 50 microns (ultrafine) to as large as 1000 microns (coarse filter), it is the staple of many startup roasters. The more robust SRM 4555 grinder is the perfect fit for those making their first foray into the world of accurate, higher-capacity roller-style grinding. MPE’s booth number at the Global Specialty Coffee Expo is 1010.
