What is a good machine for making a lot of Nut Praline Paste?

I am currently making a lot of almond praline paste in my robot coupe. It does a good job, but it can only handle small batches and it does take quite a while to get a nice paste.  I think I will need to upgrade to a bigger machine. Does anyone have any reccomendations on what to buy. I am looking at making about 30 pounds of praline paste in a day.  Thanks in advance!

A colloid mill could easily handle that.  search JKV colloid mill, but be prepared to clean the living daylights out of it.

My Robot Coupe only has a 5 minute duty cycle. How are you able to make a oaste in that much time?

I had a robot coupe (industrial size) that could have hours long run cycles.  The larger ones are more versatile.

Look at a Stephan mixer.  Work very well, and they have a bowl scraper you use while grinding.

Two changes we made with the chocolate is that this time we winnowed the chocolate. This time we didn't use a blow dryer to melt the chocolate. Two improvements with the chocolate is that the melanger didn't get clogged this time and everyone put in work.
