Heat and centrifugal force remove oil from batch fried potato chips with Heat and Control ’s automatic heated centrifuge. Depending on the potatoes’ specific gravity, oil content in chips can be reduced to less than 22%. Models are available to de-oil 2.2kg batches from individual fryers, or 34kg batches from multiple fryers.
The feed and discharge of chips, centrifuge acceleration, spin time and deceleration are automatically managed by a programmable logic controller. The gas-heated centrifuge features insulated exterior panels and a vertical space-saving design that fits most batch fryers. Non-heated centrifuges are also available.
Heat and Control also supply a variety of batch fryers, automatic chip stirring systems, potato handling and preparation equipment, conveyors, seasoning applicators, Ishida weighers, snack bag makers, and checkweighing systems.
