Heat and Control Multi-zone continuous Potato Chip Fryers

Heat and Control Multizone continuous fryers are used to produce most of the world’s potato chips.

Heat and Control Multizone continuous fryers are used to produce most of the world’s potato chips.

The Heat and Control Multi-Zone continuous Potato Chip Fryers deliver the ultimate in processing flexibility. Create custom temperature profiles to produce traditional, ultralight or kettle style chips all from the same fryer.

Produce 4,200 finished lbs/hr with a KleenSweep® centrifugal oil filter.

Oil is introduced and removed at different points along the fryer pan for precise control of temperature, product flow and fines removal. Fry at lower temperatures to produce lighter color chips. All chips receive the same exposure to oil for uniform cooking.

Cleaning solution follows the same path as oil for thorough sanitation. Clean-in-place spray nozzles in the hood and exhaust stack clean all areas above the oil path. Self-locking motorized screw jacks raise the hood and paddle/submerger conveyor clear of the pan for complete cleaning access.

  • Precise frying control

    Continuous oil circulation between the fryer, filter and heat exchanger provides precise control of temperature and rapid adjustment to product load changes.

    Specially engineered oil inlet maintains positive oil flow to clear the product infeed area without back eddies or undercurrents.

    Fryer metering paddles and a submerger conveyor control cook times for consistently uniform product.

  • Superior oil quality

    Low oil volume and rapid oil turnover assure fresh product with a long shelf life.

    Optimal oil level is automatically maintained.

  • Continuous filtration

    Circulating oil keeps fines in suspension for efficient removal. Every minute, 100% of the system oil volume passes through a filter to remove product particles for the highest oil and product quality.

  • 400 to 6,500 lbs/hr

    Standard fryers are available for 400 to over 6,500 lbs/hr (182 to 2,951 kg/hr) of finished potato chips. Batch, multi-zone, and fabricated chip fryers are also available for a variety of capacities.
