At Rosenqvists we have 25 years of experience with the Star Wheel Fryer design. We are continuously improving and adjusting the functionality. Our focus will always be on improving the frying performance and to simplify the operation´of the process line. We can highlight two major improvements with today’s Star Wheel Fryer, compared with the design a decade ago:

AUTOMATIC OIL LEVEL CONTROL
We have introduced automatic oil level control arrangement. By measuring the oil level automatically, you can always make sure you use the adequate amount of oil. With this new set-up, we can save oil consumption and reach best possible oil turnover rate.

IMPROVED PELLET OUTLET
New product outlet with screening. The newly fried pellets leaving the fryer carry some extra oil with them. We have a new outlet design with a screen allowing most of the oil to separate from the pellets before the drip-off belt. As before, the drip-off belt will take care of the rest of the extra oil.

SOME OTHER MINOR IMPROVEMENTS:

• Safety sensor to avoid opening the fryer when infeed conveyor is in place
• Temperature- and oil level safety sensors
