Potato chip manufacturing process

1

Warehouse

First, we start with the storage of the product to regulate its entry into the production line. For this we can use:

2

Washing

We then subject the potatoes to a bath to remove stones and mud from their surface in order to preserve our peeler and/or cutter and offer a higher quality product.

3

Peeled

Next, we peel the potato. The peeler chosen will depend on the production we need. We can even choose to put two peeling machines in parallel.

4

Inspection

Once the tuber has left the peeling process, it passes through a tape where it is visually located and eliminates any damage it may have.

5

Cut

On the cutter, we can adjust the thickness of the sheets with great precision without even having to stop the machinery.

6

Starch removal

To eliminate the starch produced during cutting and thus better conserve the oil in the fryer, it is best to use a water bath and then ventilated to evacuate excess water before frying.

7

Fryer feeding

Once the product has been removed from the washer, we transport it to the fryers by means of a fast or alternative feeding belt, depending on the number of fryers we have to feed (one line can feed up to two fryers).

8

Filtering

The fryers are accompanied by a pressurized filter and a reservoir to accumulate the oil at the end of the day.

9

Frying

After frying, the chips are placed in a sieve where the crumbs are removed. When the chips come out of this sieve, a curtain of salt gives them the final touch.

10

Cooled

Then we must let them cool down for later packing. Mmmmmm! Good!
