Drier, cleaner product requires less energy to fry or freeze. Heat and Control's AirSweep water removal system combines vacuum and blow-off forces to remove surface water and residue from potato slices, fruits and vegetables before frying or freezing.
For frying, AirSweep water removal system reduces fryer fuel usage. For freezing, the removal of surface water saves energy, increases freezer capacity, and reduces product clumping. AirSweep water removal system also removes product scraps to prevent cleaning problems in downstream equipment.
