With the lowest total oil volume of any pellet fryer on the market, the SWF is available in three sizes with product output from 100- 1000 kg/h. The SWF has a low oil turnover, which equates to an exceptional turnover rate and optimized product quality with a long shelf-life.

Rosenqvists SWF provides gentle handling and uniform frying, from 2- to 3-dimensional products. The fryer consists of a rotary wheel that is divided into several compartments.

Its design ensures that each pellet gets the same frying time and the compartment's special surface treatment makes sure that pellets will not stick to the wheel. The frying tests De-Oiling Belt is used after the fryer with 2-3 turning points to ensure maximum oil drip off before seasoning, all excess oil is automatically pumped back into the oil system.

The telescopic exhaust stack is removable and allows easy access to the pan and frying wheel, which is lifted with a motor-driven lift system. Safety sensors in place control temperature- and oil levels. Furthermore, a safety sensor ensures that the fryer hood cannot be opened when the infeed conveyor is in place.
