Evenly golden brown and crisp on the outside, deliciously creamy and melting on the inside: Potato sticks deep-fried in hot fat were first recorded in 1781 in Belgium, and have long since evolved into an internationally popular snack. But cooking them to perfection is not so easy. It takes a good quality oil and a deep fryer that can heat it quickly to exactly the right temperature as and when required.
Versatile and economical
Such as the eco-friendly gas-powered fryer “Friggy” from elframo, Italy’s leading supplier of commercial kitchen equipment. Its core element is the condensing heating system NRV 118, which was developed in close cooperation by ebm-papst Heating Systems and ebm-papst Landshut. The perfectly coordinated components that make up this system solution comprise a blower with integrated venturi and a gas valve to guarantee optimal gas/air mix with high modulation ranges. This is important for deep fryers that can be used for cooking either large or small quantities. To cook a large amount of food the oil needs to rapidly reach its maximum temperature, but for smaller quantities it is also important to immediately reduce the power. In this way, not only is the fried food beautifully crisp, but the appliance can reduce its fuel consumption. The burner is also fitted with a dynamic infrared-controlled thermostat to ensure the efficient use of energy throughout.
From service provider to partner
This customised solution is the fruit of a development phase characterised by the comprehesive exchange of information between elframo and ebm-papst, because only a fundamental understanding of the overall application can ensure an efficient condensing system. This close partnership has resulted in a product that is not only environmentally-friendly but also energy-saving and cost-effective, all advantages that also benefit the end user.With this single-source system solution elframo can rely on having a perfectly coordinated pretested package. This saves time and money in the run-up to production and later simplifies maintenance.
Smaller and more efficient
Last year, elframo’s products earned the Innovation Award of the Italian industry association Confindustria. An incentive for further developments to fulfil customers’ demands for new powerful appliances that are even smaller and use fuel even more efficiently. The system partner is well prepared: a powerful young successor to the NRV 118, the NRV 77, is already standing by for these new products.
