    Wire brushes in cooling bins

    Of all the work and modifications we have done to our Primo roasters through the years, there has been 1 part I have not been able to find. I am not a big fan of Dion at Primo and would rather not give him my business.

    Does anyone know where I can buy wire brushes for my cooling bins? I was told by someone somewhere (and I can't remember) that they are sold in lengths. You cut to your desired length and weld attachment bar on.

    They are getting old and seem to be loosing bristles.

    Thanks for any help!

    Thanks for that idea!

    I looked all over their site and could not find them (I could be crazy and missed it). STILL LOOKING, any ideas?

    I was thinking something like product number 63595T4 You'd also have to buy the holder strip.

    NHcoffee..are you a fan of the brushes vs. straight metal? I personally do not like brushes..beans get stuck in them and then if your not careful when you are picking them out you get pricked. I have one more to convert to straight flat "rake" at any rate glad you found what you needed

    I agree that beans can get stuck in them. But flat straight metal does not empty the cooling bin. A simple sweep with a 1/2" wooden dowel and all beans come free of the brushes; less than 10 seconds.

    When you are doing production work, it is nice to put a bin under and open the discharge shoot and walk away to let the machine work for you. If we were to be emptying the final beans of each roast by hand, I would loose more labor than picking beans out every once and a while. Unlike a cafe environment where the roastmaster stands around and watches each step of the roast as his/her only job, my roastmaster (16 years with NH Coffee) performs other production responsibilities while he is roasting; he might be blending, flavoring or staging a grind or even filling a small order during the roast process. Of course there are times when he only stands in front of the roaster, but once profiles are set it becomes production.

    So I guess to answer your question, yes I prefer brushes verses straight metal.

    Cool. I am lucky. My whole production space is under 800 sq ft..with a 60 kilo and afterburner inside. Talk about cramped!
