New high capacity kettle chip fryer
Heat and Controlís new MasterTherm Kettle Fryer (MTKF) can produce 500 finished lbs/hr of batch fried potato chips of almost any style with excellent consistency.
Cooking oil is heated gently and uniformly throughout the fryer by a thermal fluid heat exchanger which is immersed in the oil. Generous spacing between the heating tubes facilitates cleaning and eliminates areas where fines can accumulate. Each tube expands independently, greatly reducing damage caused by thermal stress. Tubes are electro-polished to simplify cleaning.
A full-length hood covers the kettle for safety and additional benefits: Heat is retained for high energy efficiency; steam blanketing the oil purges oxygen to prolong oil life; exhaust volume is far less than fryers using area hoods; a clean-in-place system reduces sanitation labor. Features include a continuous fines removal system, an Oil Mist Eliminator which removes oil droplets from exhaust emissions, and a screw jack hoist system that safely raises the hood and heat exchanger for complete access inside the fryer.
Potato slices are automatically agitated and removed from the fryer by Heat and Controlís Chip-Stirr paddle system. PLC control maintains a consistent temperature profile from batch to batch, and stores multiple product profiles for quick changeovers and repeatable product quality.
Single and multiple MKTF fryers are available with potato unloading, storage, washing, and peeling equipment, slice feeders, de-oiling centrifuges, seasoning applicators, conveying, inspection and packaging systems.
