Potato Chips Processing Line
We have extensive knowledge of the potato as raw material and how to design an effective process. We combine the latest technologies using computer simulation programs and build efficient and reliable process equipment. We take responsibility for design, manufacture and installation. We will commission the line and make sure that your staff get professional training in maintenance and process control.
Process for Potato Chips Production
Step 1: Preparation
Potatoes are Destoned and washed in Our Vertical Screw Destoner. For more difficult soil conditions, we recommend our Cyclone Destoner. The Continuous Abrasive Peeler peels the potatoes gently with an even and accurate result.
Step 2: Slice Washing
After slicing, the starch on the surface of the slices needs to be washed away. Our Slice Washer uses minimum amount of water to gently clean the potato slices. Small potato particles are effectively removed from the product flow.
Step 3: Blanching
If your raw material contains higher levels of sugar, the blancher will leak out/reduce the sugar level so that a golden chip can still be produced. The unique Zone Blancher separates every single slice for optimum and even blanching result. The temperature, set in three zones and the paddle belt assure a controlled and exact blanching effect . The bottom belt design allows to run the blancher without water when processing chips of low-sugar level potatoes.
Step 4: Multi Zone Frying
The critical phase in the potato chip process is the frying phase. With controlled oil flows and Multi-Zone design, Our frying system will be frying the potato slices to perfect texture, bite and colour. Low total oil volume, special design hood, etc. guarantees the best final product quality.
Step 5: Seasoning
After frying phase Chips production is completed. Now it’s time for adding some extra test by adding Seasoning. Our continuous seasoning drum you can set the mixing ratio. It will continuously mix seasoning at your set ratio without additional manpower.
