Universal Potato Chip System Creates Personalized Snacks for Each Customer

Jan. 26, 2010
Heat and Control's new system makes all styles of potato chips with one fryer.

From hard-bite kettle style to traditional chips, Heat and Control’s new Universal Potato Chip system lets you create personalized snacks for each customer using one economical continuous fryer.  It can also be used for plantain, malanga, multi-grain and other chips and snack products.

UPC utilizes independent fryer modules integrated into one compact, continuous frying system.  Adjust the frying time, temperature and oil flow in each module to produce chips with specific texture, moisture and color qualities.  An easy-to-use PLC stores multiple recipes so you can change products in minutes. 

The fryer costs less to operate than separate batch or continuous fryers producing the same capacity.  UPC uses about half the energy of comparable batch fryers.  And it can produce traditional style potato chips with little or no water.
