Large potato chips processing line process

You can see from the video that the machine in the large potato chips production line has been replaced with an automatic high-volume machine.

  1. The blanching machine and frying machine have been replaced with mesh belt continuous machines. The mesh belt fryer can control the frying time by controlling the speed of potato chip transportation. The machine controls the frying time and temperature by the PLC display screen. And the machine also has the features of an automatic lifting mesh belt and automatic cleaning.
  2. The octagonal flavoring machine is replaced with a rotarty drum seasoning machine in the large line. It can realize the continuity of seasoning while realizing automatic feeding.
  3. For packaging, a four-head or ten-head scale is usually used to achieve large-volume automatic packaging instead of the potato chips packaging machine above.
