Potato Slice Injection Blancher: Enlargement

Multiple water jets in the bottom of the blancher tank force water up through the product pack. This spreads slices throughout the washer, separating them for greater surface exposure. Bottom-up water injection produces more uniform blanching than designs which inject water from the sides, compressing slices into a tight pack in the center of the washer.
Continuous water circulation maintains a consistent blanching temperature and keeps fines in suspension for efficient removal by a Motorized Catch Box filter.
Precisely adjustable water temperature, dwell time, and dewatering allow you to control the color and texture of finished potato chips. Extended blanching lowers the sugar content of slices and helps reduce the formation of acrylamides.
Slice dwell time is precisely controlled by an overhead positioning conveyor. Fresh water sprays rinse slices before surface water is removed by an Air Knife.
Slices are spread fully across the variable speed discharge conveyor. This promotes efficient dewatering and deposits a consistent flow of individual slices into the fryer to produce finished chips with uniform moisture content and to eliminate uncooked clusters of chips.
