NEWS IN SHORT

to its configuration, allows for space saving and a smooth production process. In this way, it is possible to avoid the use of row gear up/gear down systems, which are very common in the pan lines used in tunnel ovens. This is not something new; however, this spiral configuration makes it possible to make the best of the heating system designed by Tecnopool for this oven. The absence of forced ventilation and the favourable balance of air/product volume in the cell, compared to a tunnel oven, makes it possible to work with room temperatures between 10° and 15°C lower than those used by tunnel ovens (cooking times being equal). In special cases, according to Tecnopool’s experience, these differences can reach 30°C. Anyway, also in some specific cases in which it is necessary, forced ventilation is also installed in order to increase the convective effect. The technical decision leading Tecnopool to choose a radiator system, together with the special configuration afforded by the spiral, comes from the results obtained after years of trials with all types of products and in very different working conditions, which

show a higher thermal performance, thus improving the results compared with other systems. The thermal fluid that runs through the tubes is diathermic oil, a system that has been chosen on account of its high thermal performance and its very low risk. It must be taken into consideration that the performance of a diathermic-oil boiler ranges between 87% and 91%, compared to 60% of an air-heating system or 30% of a direct-flame heating system. Tecnopool spiral oven makes it possible to save space, simplify the flow of the production line and save energy.

- Increase the rate of response and adjustment of the temperature; - Keep the frying oil as static as possible. Fume extraction hood with fat separation filters, high-efficiency turbine and glazed perimeter fence: - To facilitate the extraction of fumes and steam, prevent any condensation dripping back into the frying oil causing contamination; - To permit the visual inspection of the production; - To separate and condense the oil in suspension present in the fumes, to avoid odour.

Thermal Oil Fryer True to its philosophy of constant evolution and growth, Tecnopool increases its product range with another processing machine that allows it to complete new production lines that meet customer requirements in the areas of meat, fish, bread and sweets, snacks, peanuts and even pet food: Tecnopool fryer.

Frying pan completely removable: - For easy and fast cleaning during maintenance work of the machine; - To permit the elimination of scrap as solids; - To use the frying pan as a decantation filter of the oil.

Why choosing a Tecnopool fryer? Thermal oil exchanger submerged in the frying pan to: - Reduce to a minimum the difference in temperature between the heat source and the required frying temperature of the oil;

In short, the best choice for Tecnopool’s customers.
