The batter applicator and multi-zone fryer system can process more than 35,000 finished lbs/hr (16,000 kg/hr) of batter-coated french fries. The batter applicator applies a clear coating the gives fries a crisp texture and long serving life. Submersion in premixed batter and passage through two batter curtains ensure uniform coverage. 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. 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 designed to deliver uniform side-to-side oil-to-product velocity and Delta-T. Unitized construction provides a stable pan structure that resists thermal deformity.
