Started the monthly roaster maint. for August ahead of schedule

We removed the cooling tray fan, soaked and wire brushed the cage, and re assembled the unit and put it back in the housing.
Chaff cyclone was brushed out and cleaned.
The cooling capacity of this roaster is not great – I am looking to add a larger fan or an additional fan to bring the times down quicker.
The biggest issue is the amount of heat that is absorbed by the tray, the arms and the sides of the tray. After an hour of production with 4 loads of our Euro roast Java, you can’t touch the arms in the cooling tray or the sides – adding heat in the cooling tray is not good.
