This Pitco 40D gas fryer includes a rear-located 3⁄4-inch NPT connection valve for use with propane gas. With an oil capacity of 40 to 45 pounds, this commercial fryer is capable of meeting your foodservice operation's medium-volume demand for fried favorites. Because of the deep cool zone, which contains about 20 percent of the fryer's oil, you can fry heavily-breaded foods like chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, and onion rings. The frying area measures 14 inches by 14 inches, accommodating the two twin-sized fry baskets that come standard with the unit.
Thanks to a number of standard features, the Pitco 40D operates efficiently and safely. Long-lasting alloy stainless steel heat baffles, which are mounted in the heat exchanger tubes, are designed to stand up to high temperatures and provide maximum efficiency for heat and combustion. The gas control valve only allows gas to flow to the main burner once the pilot is established, and cuts off the gas flow if the pilot flame goes out. The high-temperature limit will also shut off the gas flow if the fryer exceeds safe temperatures.
This Pitco gas fryer comes standard with six-inch legs that provide the required amount of floor clearance and make it easy to clean the area around the unit. A welded stainless steel tank, given a super-smooth finish, also facilitates cleaning. A front-located 11⁄2-inch drain valve and drain extension will help operators empty the tank's used oil into the appropriate container and a clean-out rod helps remove sediment.
