Pitco 40D Gas Fryer - (1) 45 lb Vat, Floor Model, Natural Gas
The Pitco 40D fryer has a 151⁄8-inch width that fits into kitchen layouts with a small available footprint. This model has the capacity to hold between 40 and 45 pounds of oil and provides a frying area that measures 14 inches by 14 inches, which is ideal for foodservice operations with a medium-volume demand for fried foods. Containing at least 20 percent of the total oil, the deep cool zone catches crumbs and sediments to prevent them from burning so that operators can fry breaded dishes like mozzarella sticks, chicken tenders, and onion rings.
This fryer is equipped with an atmospheric burner system and four tubes with mounted baffles to produce heat and combustion efficiently. Featuring an upper limit switch that shuts off the gas flow if the fryer begins to exceed safe temperatures, this tube-fired fryer has a temperature range of 200 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Its comprehensive gas control valve will also shut off the gas flow if the pilot flame goes out. The Pitco 40D fryer has a stainless steel tank that is welded and has a smooth finish to facilitate cleaning.
