Heat and Control Batter Applicator and Multi-Zone Frying System Features Precise Temperature Control
Over 35,000 finished pounds/hour (16,000 kg/hr) of crispy batter-coated french fries can be produced using Heat and Control's latest batter applicator and multi-zone fryer system.
The batter applicator applies a clear coating that gives fries a crisp texture and long serving life. Submersion in a pool of premixed batter and passage through two batter curtains ensure uniform coverage. The applicator’s batter tank and drip pan are chilled to maintain batter consistency and reduce cleaning requirements. The outside-return conveyor belt can be raised clear of the pan to simplify cleaning, and the entire applicator system slides aside for sanitation, or when uncoated product is run.
The fryer features Heat and Control’s latest technology for controlled, uniform cooking and efficient operation. Each of the fryer’s two independent stages has three oil temperature zones for precise temperature control and rapid fines removal. Oil inlets and outlets are specially designed to deliver uniform side-to-side oil-to-product velocity and Delta-T. The outside-return conveyor belt reduces oil volume in the fryer. Unitized construction provides a stable pan structure that resists thermal deformity.
