    Florigo Superior R/K industrial fryer for potato chips

    Continuing the innovation and introduction of new technology for today’s requirements Florigo proudly announce the launched of the “Superior R/K” fryer – an innovative new design of fryer for regular and Kettle or Artisan Style potato chips (crisps).

    Featuring parallel oil flow, adapted outfeed plates and a dual zone independent temperature set up, the R/K allows producers to minimize the formation of Acrylamide. This is effected by creating a large Δ T (30° C) over the fryer, which allows a lower end frying temperature.

    Additionally, the dual oil circulation makes it also possible to create a U-type temperature curve, which is typical for batch fryers. This creates chips (crisps) with a harder bite (Kettle-style).

    Other aspects which have been looked at during the design of the new fryer are:

    • A homogeneous oil flow through the frying kettle, resulting in accurate retention time of the slices
    • Hygienic design of the frying kettle and transport system
    • Integrated defatting belt
    • Controllable and reproducible process settings
    • Improved access to the internals of the fryer which makes it more friendly for cleaning and maintenance
    The first fryer will be installed at the end of February.
