EFFICENT, HIGH VOLUME PRODUCTION OF STACKABLE FRIED CHIPS
Reading Bakery Systems offers a modular Stackable Chip System to reliably and efficiently produce fabricated stackable chips. The system can produce between 250-750 kg/hr depending on the fryer capacity.
The Exact Mixing FX Continuous Mixing System was specifically designed for this chip process. The FX Mixer evenly distributes moisture throughout the potato dough by using a specialized liquid injection system along with a revolutionary mixer shaft design. The streamlined continuous mixing process minimizes the time between the mixer and 2-Roll Sheeter, eliminating batch cycle variations and creating consistent and appealing product textures. With this recipe-driven system, final product quality is assured and is fully repeatable.
The dough transport conveyor ensures that the dough makes it from the mixer to the 2-Roll Sheeter hopper on a first-in, first-out basis. As an option, a metal detector can be provided to the dough feed system to protect the dough sheeting rolls. Metal detectors monitor the final product before packaging for consumer protection.
The single-reduction, 2-Roll Sheeter produces a continuous dough sheet that is discharged directly onto the Rotary Cutter infeed conveyor. The rolls of the 2-Roll Sheeter are provided with unions for chilled water supply to maintain roll surface temperatures during production.
The die roll on the Rotary Cutter separates the dough sheet into distinct shapes. In order to allow a more efficient changeover between product types or sizes, the Rotary Cutter may have two die rolls.
