Automatic Heated Centrifuge: Enlargement



New spin on de-oiling
Batches of just-fried chips are carefully conveyed into a perforated drum and rapidly spun in heated air for a preset and adjustable time. Centrifugal force removes oil before chips are discharged to a conveyor for transfer to seasoning and packaging.
Batch fryer friendly
Designed for individual or multiple batch fryers, two models are available to de-oil up to 45 or 75 pound batches of potato chips. Compact vertical design with insulated exterior panels saves space and energy.
Automatic operation
Product feed and discharge, temperature, drum acceleration, deceleration and spin time are adjustable and can be automatically managed by a programmable logic controller.
Reduce breakage
A cone inside the centrifuge drum minimizes free-fall damage to incoming product. Gentle acceleration and deceleration of the drum further prevent product breakage.
Easy cleaning
Cooking oil drains to a single outlet during operation. Rugged stainless steel construction features large access doors and a clean-in-place spray manifold for connection to your cleaning system.
