For more than 40 years ago, we developed the unique method of processing low fat chips. The method using saturated heat, ensures that the final product quality remains but with a potato chips with lower fat content. Using the patented Rosenqvists Defatter ,the finall oil content will be reduced by minimum ten ( 10 ) actual percent meaning a reduction from
normal 33 - 35 % down to 23 - 25 % . This corresponds to a potato chip with 30 - 35 % lower fat content.
Basic principle : The Defatter has to be connected directly to your exisiting fryer in order to achieve the best result and have no negative impact of the oil quality. ( see sketch )
How it works : The Defatter works as an in- line closed chamber ( see sketch )
- Steam is injected and blown through a heat exchanger where it is super-heated to 160 - 180 degree C.
- The super-heated steam passes the product bed, picking up excess oil from the product surface.
- The steam ,full of oil droplets, passes through a specially designed filter ,which removes and recovers the oil
- Since the process takes Place in an oxygen-free environment, the quality of the oil is preserved and it can be pumped back to the fryer.
Test / Lab unit : Do you want to test the impact of the Defatter on your product ? We have a small test unit that can be sent to your plant, The test unit
( measurements: 1 x 1 x 1 meter ) is selfsupported and gives you the same result as the fullscale industrial machine in terms of oil reduction, crispiness, colour, taste, etc.
This we guarantee !
