    small roaster but neighbors complaining

    just opened a roaster-retailer store in a small town. we use a 2 kilo ambex roaster. we are getting complaints from neighbors about the smell and smoke and we want to make things right. any ideas? will an afterburner cost more than the roaster did? we dont know what to do.

    what does the law state? I remember roasting in Tampa with a 20 lb royal with no after burner...no one could say anything...same in Largo FL I had an Ambex 5 kilo no after burner...since it was only a 5 kilo I wasn't required to have one..we where located in an out door mall....man on a good windy day you could smell it for miles

    Jeanne,

    How do you like the 2 kilo so far? I am considering getting that one myself, but have been wondering how the quality of the roast stacks up to the larger roasters. Seems like it would be a good size to haul to shows and fairs, etc.

    loving the small roaster...but...

    I love the roaster! It's a gem. We are considering an afterburner now, because we want to roast whenever we want--not just in the wee hours when folks aren't walking the streets wondering, "what's that weird smell?".

    I am interested in the suggestions for installing a blower and adding 5 feet to the chimney stack. Who makes such a blower, or should I just look at the hardware store?

    Sigh...an afterburner is the best idea, I think, because our neighbors will have nothing to complain about--except, they're mighty costly.

    Now I'm in with a new problem where my roaster is emitting smoke INSIDE the shop, i.e., when I let the roast out, it's not drawing the smoke through the fan, out the chimney. We're cleaning it out completely now; hoping that will do the trick.

    We're new to the biz and still relishing every bean--trials and tribulations aside! Thanks for all the advice.

    We had the same problem

    We built our own coffee afterburner and it cost us $1000 in parts plus labor. We would be happy to share our design and parts list. Or we could build you one. We use it on several roasters IR-24 and a Primo Ten. We ca be reached at sales@freshcoffee.net or 805-553-0930.

    install a blower and put a small ozongenerator in the pipe.....
    ozon its a very strong oxidizer and after the destruction is nothing left then oxygen.....
    and i promise you ozone kills almost every smell...!

    check this

    and the search for the ACT-6000 under the product range.....

    How many ozone I need if I have 5 kg electric roaster? 7g/hour ozone will be ok?

    Thank you for your reply.

    I'd start with a longer exhaust pipe first. That should be your cheapest route and if it works, you're done.
