The production process of the automatic potato chips processing line
Washing and peeling-cutting into strips or slices-blanching-dehydrating-frying-deoiling-seasoning-packaging, the process of producing potato chips is very simple, First, peel the potatoes and wash them. The washing machine can carry out washing and peeling at the same time. Then use a belt conveyor to feed the peeled potatoes to the slicer. The potatoes are cut into thin slices as needed. And wash the free starch with water. The cleaned potato chips are sent to the blanching machine for blanching, and the cleaned and blanched potato chips carry a large amount of attached water. Use a dehydrator to remove the moisture on the surface of the potato chips, and the oil content in the finished product of fried crisps is between 30%-40%.
After frying, the potato chips are transported to the degreasing machine to drain the remaining oil on the surface of the product. The fried potato chips are transported to the drum seasoning machine to season the potato chips, and different seasonings are added according to different products. Then the seasoned potato chips are transported to the packaging workshop, and the products are packaged into the required size and shape.
Introduction of raw materials for potato chips production
Potato is a kind of economic crop with a high yield, strong adaptability, wide distribution, rich nutrition, and high economic price. Fried potato chips are made from fresh potatoes after washing, peeling, slicing, and seasoning. This kind of convenience food is deep-fried at high temperatures for a short time and dehydrated quickly. Compared with traditional processing methods such as frying and stewing, it effectively prevents the water-soluble nutrients in potatoes from being lost during processing.
How to choose potato chips?
The quality of raw materials has a direct impact on the quality of finished products. Different varieties of potatoes have obvious differences in their dry matter content, color inside the potato, depth of buds, reducing sugar content, solanine content, and polyphenol oxidase content. When choosing potatoes, you should choose fresh potatoes with low starch content, and require pure varieties, shallow sprouts, regular shapes, no mildew, rot, sprouting, and insect pests. The selected raw materials are sent into the hopper, and the raw materials are weighed through a belt conveyor, and at the same time, they are selected to remove moldy potato blocks and rotten lumps.
Features of large automatic potato chips processing line
- It not only keeps the frying oil clean, improves the product quality, and extends the shelf life, but also brings higher added value to the product.
- Advanced mechanical configuration and control can always maintain good working conditions, which not only increases the output but also makes the product quality stable, and the color, fragrance, and taste are unified.
- The automatic filtering of this machine can greatly extend the service life of frying oil without frequent oil changes. The oil consumed during the frying process of the product is equivalent to the oil absorbed by the product, saving fuel efficiency
Benefits of automatic potato chips processing line
The biggest advantage of using the frying line is high automation, time-saving, labor-saving, low labor intensity, etc, and the product quality is stable, the output is high, the cost is low, and it is green and pollution-free. French fries frying assembly line, the frying time is controllable, the frying time can be adjusted freely according to the product demand, and the oil temperature can be controlled in detail and accurately so that the food can be fried at the best temperature and the product quality can be improved.
The frying line has a good temperature control effect. After feeding, the overall oil temperature fluctuation range is controlled within 2 degrees, which reduces the energy loss of re-heating, saves production time, and improves efficiency. The fried French fries production line is a mesh belt frying assembly line. According to the size requirements of the product, the network bandwidth and mesh size are adjusted. The whole machine is made of high-quality stainless steel, strong and durable, with strong corrosion resistance, a beautiful appearance, and strong applicability.
