Heat and Control ships new equipment for 5,000 lb/hr of potato chips

Engineered to integrate with a customer’s existing potato handling equipment, a new Heat and Control continuous potato chip slicer feeding, washing, and frying system will boost finished chip production capacity and improve product quality. To continuously produce 5,000 finished pounds/hour (2,268 kg/hr) of potato chips, the system accepts a high volume of peeled potatoes from the customer’s existing preparation equipment and singulates them into multiple slicers. Accurately feeding potatoes into each slicer increases the yield of whole slices, which consumers prefer. Efficient slicing reduces the amount of scrap transferred to the washer and fryer, so slice washing efficiency is maximized and cooking oil degradation is reduced.
