Clean conveyingVarilift's no-spill buckets always remain upright after discharging product to insure a clean, trouble-free operation. A unique infeed system with overlapping buckets eliminates gaps to prevent product loss and reduce cleanup time and costs.
Easy cleaningOne-piece food grade buckets are quickly removed without tools for faster cleaning. The optional Tip-To-Clean™ system pivots buckets into the dump position to allow easy cleaning while they're in the conveyor's lower vertical section. When more stringent cleaning is required, an integrated Clean-In-Place system can be provided that automatically washes buckets.
VersatilityCarouselling buckets that can fully rotate allow product discharge from the conveyor at more than one location. Built from interchangeable modules, Varilift conveyors can be configured in S, C or horizontal layouts, and can be added to or reconfigured to suit changes in your production line.
Varilift bucket conveyors and other Heat and Control product handling systems are available for inspection and testing at our Technical Centers. Contact us for more information and a demonstration running your products!

Product Safety Drawings
Customer safety is a top priority at Heat and Control. Every Heat and Control manufactured machine is subjected to a thorough product safety review and inspection before it ships from one of our factories.
To expand our commitment to customer safety, we are in the process of implementing an additional inspection procedure. A Product Safety Drawing (PSD) is provided to customers to verify, prior to startup, that all safety-related features and systems are operational and have not been damaged or compromised during shipping or installation.
The machine's PSD identifies all safety devices and features. Prior to shipment, each item is signed-off by a qualified Heat and Control representative at the factory, and a copy of the drawing is shipped with the machine to the customer. An additional copy of the drawing is delivered to the customer either by mail or courier, or by a Heat and Control service representative if one has been commissioned for installation and start-up services.
At installation, the PSD is a valuable tool for highlighting the location, purpose, importance and maintenance of each safety device or system. We stress the value of this safety inspection and underscore its importance by requesting that customers sign off on each item as it is reviewed, discussed, and inspected.
The value of the Product Safety Drawing doesn't stop there. Long after startup of the equipment, the PSD will be an important asset for customers to use in training new personnel in the maintenance and safe operation of the machinery, and in conducting periodic inspections to insure that all machine safety features are always functioning properly.
Catch The HeatWave
Nothing provides better evidence of the versatility and exceptional performance of our HeatWave® frying system than the growing list of processors who have chosen its patented technology to cook a wide range of products.
Precise control of oil temperature allows completely uniform cooking through the fryer, or you can adjust oil flow from individual curtains to create custom heat transfer and cooking profiles. And the gentle flow of oil over the product preserves the most delicate coatings and maintains product orientation throughout cooking to prevent marriages and other coating damage.
For maximum cooking versatility, the innovative HeatWave fryer can even be switched from oil to water for blanching!
Never before has one fryer offered such versatility and savings. We invite you to find out for yourself by visiting our Technical Centers to test your products on the revolutionary HeatWave fryer.
