Pitco 40S Frialator Gas Fryer - (1) 45 lb Vat, Natural Gas

by Pitco

Pitco 40S Description

The Pitco 40S gas fryer has an oil capacity of 40 to 45 pounds and can fry 72 pounds of fries per hour. This model has a frying area that measures 14 inches by 14 inches, providing ample space for operators to use the two included nickel-plated fry baskets. Designed with a deep cold zone ideal for frying heavily breaded foods, this commercial fryer can keep up with a medium to heavy demand for chicken fingers, onion rings, mozzarella sticks, and more.

This Pitco 40S commercial fryer offers a temperature range of 200 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and its millivolt controls maintain more accurate temperatures than electromechanical thermostats. The heating tubes contain high-temperature baffles for lasting durability and combustion efficiency. This fryer's standing pilot light ensures the flame is ready on demand, but if the pilot goes out, the gas flow stops automatically. For safety, the gas flow also stops if the temperature exceeds 450 degrees Fahrenheit, protecting the unit from permanent damage.

The fryer's welded stainless steel tank has been pressure blasted to achieve a smooth, easy-to-clean surface. The cabinet front and door are constructed of stainless steel, and the galvanized steel sides and back can be quickly wiped down. With the help of the front-located 114-inch drain, the tank can be emptied, and the included drain extension helps operators empty the oil into an appropriate container for disposal. A clean-out rod is also included to help ensure no sediment is left behind after cleaning.
