  • PROBAT R Series commercial coffee roasters are designed for high-volume roasting across the entire color-development spectrum. Flexible enough to fit any profile, this type of roaster enables repeatable and consistent roasts, batch after batch. 

    The recirculating versions of our R Series roasters offer greater energy efficiency and reduced emissions. The R Series roasters include an automatic clean-out function that minimizes maintenance. All R Series models feature a double-walled roasting cylinder with a perforated rear cover. The insulated roaster housing has a solid back plate and front door to help retain energy.  

    The R Series’ solid roasting drum and special paddle mixer mechanism ensure optimal blending, consistent roasting and effortless scalability. A large cooling tray promotes rapid cooling to lock in flavor and aroma.

    Analog dampers and burner controls allow the operator to dial in temperature and airflow rate to customize the roast. 

    Constructed of only the highest-quality components, Burns R Series roasters are exceptionally durable and include numerous built-in health and safety features. All models come standard with an integrated fire suppression system for the roaster, cooler and hot cyclone, and the roaster controls include the latest safety chain design.

    The proprietary perforated drum gives you a superior convective roast. Beans are heated by the airflow through the drum resulting in better heat transfer through the bean and a more even roast. The perforated design also means greater batch size flexibility.


  • Convective heat-transfer technology for lower roasting temperatures and higher air flow
  • Roast times between 3.5-15 minutes


      • "R" Series Drum (above)
      • Modular design for fast installation
      • Space-saving footprint—significantly smaller than solid drum roasters
      • Batch size flexibility as low as 200 lbs / 90 kg
      • Recirculating system for energy efficiency
      • Automated Clean Out (ACO) for product consistency and minimal maintenance
      • Stirflex™ cooler for effective cooling
      • Safety features to meet local code
      • Environmental controls
