We have two used Ambex roasters for sale, along with new replacement motors and stack material:

First, a YM-2, 2 kilo roaster for small batches. We've used this as a sample and profile roaster in the past. It was purchased new in 2009. Used sparingly from 2012 to 2020, and has been used occasionally since then to verify function. Fully functional, but data tracking is no longer supported (more below). Includes miscellaneous stack material, as well as backup motors. Has a PID controller to allow the roaster to cycle at a set temperature, along with a digitally proportioning gas control valve. Perfect for a home roaster or startup, or as a roast profiling unit. Set up for natural gas, requires a 120V outlet. 20,000 btu.

Second is a YM-15, 15 kilo roaster. This was purchased secondhand in 2012, and was our primary production roaster until 2017, and has pretty much sat since then, only fired up occasionally to verify function. Fully functional, but data tracking is no longer supported (more below). Includes miscellaneous stack material, as well as backup motors. Has a PID controller to allow the roaster to cycle at a set temperature, along with a digitally proportioning gas control valve. There is paint damage on the exterior of the internal chaff collector below the cooling tray from a long-ago fire, but the damage is cosmetic only, and could easily be repainted. Does not affect function. Set up for natural gas, requires a 120V outlet. 100,000 btu.

Both units come with data boxes being fed by RTD probes, but the boxes were only compatible with Ambex's old Roast Illuminator software, which is now defunct and no longer supported. In order to track your roasts, you'll need to invest in a new roast tracking platform (like Cropster), or reach out to Ambex.

Neither machine comes with any warranty, but we'll offer some instruction and help in terms of roasting knowledge, and what we've learned about the machines over the last 15 years.

Asking price for the units is $6,000 for the YM-2, and $12,000 for the YM-15, $17,000 for both. This includes the data boxes, stack material, and backup motors for both units to keep you running. Both units can be palletized for shipping, with buyer paying for packaging and shipping costs. Would prefer to sell locally so buyer can see what they're getting. If the roasters need to be shipped, some of the stack material is large enough that it may cost more than the material is worth.
