Here's a chance to own a rare piece of classic German engineering with over two centuries of manufacturing experience. This Probat UG-15n has survived its original gunmetal blue color finished since it was built in 1964, completely refurbished in 1991. It's fueled by Natural Gas & powered with 240v/60Hz/single phase.


It loads 15 kilos a batch, pumping through up to 4x per hour. Indeed, a work horse roaster solely created to perform as you expected. It was purchased completely refurbished by PROBAT USA, Burlingame, California, under the management of Mr. Peter Von Gimborn in 1989-90 for Canada & USA Standards in 1991.

The unit was lightly used during the 12 years span where It processed approximately 576 bags of green coffee resulting in around just under 900 hours of use from 1991 to 2003 respectively. Last production roast was in 2003 up till the video test roast you see in this listing where the output was simply Probat perfect.

Current, one-time owner since refurb no longer in the business and wanting this sweetheart of a classic piece of Probat to go back to work in a roastery with pride of the Probat UG series machine.

It's ready for disassembly, freight prep, and relation to your roastery.
