This machine is commonly known as the peanut grinder. It is a novel stainless steel wet grinding equipment used in the wet milling processing of food grains such as soybean, peanuts, sesame, cocoa, and almond.
The ingredients are ground to make creamy peanut butter. It combines several tasks from machines and equipment, including a ball grinder, granulator, pulping motor and three-roller milling machine. Its performance is unmatched, making it widely used in various sectors for raw material milling.
Peanut butter is a popular staple in many households in Kenya, and as such, the demand for peanut butter machines has been on the rise. These machines grind peanuts into a seamless, silky paste that can be used as a bread spread or as an admixture in various dishes.
However, the cost of peanut butter machines can vary greatly depending on several factors. This article will examine some critical factors determining the peanut butter machine price in Kenya.
The capacity of a peanut butter machine refers to the number of peanuts it can grind at once. Devices with more extensive capabilities are generally more expensive than those with smaller capacities. This is because larger machines require more powerful motors and advanced technology to handle the immense workload.
Machines with high capacity, capable of producing numerous tons per day, are more expensive than smaller equivalents with reduced capacity. Depending on your requirements, devices with capabilities ranging from 0.1 tons/h to 2 tons/h are available.
The brand of a peanut butter machine can also have an impact on its price. Well-known and established brands are generally more expensive than lesser-known brands. This is because customers are willing to pay more for a machine that they know is of good quality and has a reputation for durability.
Some peanut butter machines have additional features such as automatic shut-off or built-in grinders. These machines are more expensive than those without these features, as they offer more convenience and functionality.
Shelling, roasting, peeling, grinding, and finally packing the nuts into the tin is time-consuming. The entire manufacturing process can be fully automated, making it simple, quick, and convenient. This is obviously at an additional cost. For semi-automatic machines, some of these processes are done manually for ease.
The materials used to construct a peanut butter machine can also affect its price. Stainless steel machines are more expensive than plastic ones, for example. This is because stainless steel is more durable and long-lasting than plastic.
Durability is vital, especially if you need the device to serve you for the long term.
Maintenance and spare parts availability
Peanut butter machines require regular maintenance, and the cost of parts and maintenance can vary depending on the availability and prices of the spare parts in the market. Devices with more common spare parts and the availability of their replacements in the market are usually less expensive than machines whose spare parts are not readily available.
Thus it is important to ensure such services are catered for in case of breakdown.
The price of peanut butter machines can vary depending on several factors. It is important to identify the exact needs before making a purchase. This article is useful for those in the market to make this necessary purchase.
