Liquid chocolate is a unique product and requires special equipment to haul it. The result of 6 months design work can be seen in the pictures attached and it is the most complex tanker that Tiemans have ever built.
The key areas that had to be focused on were safety, heating components and the pumping gear, all of which had to function on a 24 hour continuous cycle. The result is a 20,000 litre two compartment stainless steel tanker that is effectively a chocolate box.
A major component of the tanker is the THS designed hydraulic system driving the two water-jacketed chocolate pumps on site and in transit. It is driven by a dual power source combining a 415V electric drive and a 28hp diesel engine both situated on the rear of the tanker and operates the product pumps via proportional valving.
THS designs hydraulic systems to meet the needs of the transport industry and this is just one example of many successful projects.
