Coating of potato chips or fried potatoes is and will remain a popular processing step. The production of coated products requires special demands of the frying process. The coating with batter, the preparation of the coating, and an efficient and even application of the coating, as well as an extra fryer with integrated oil-filter system, together form a complete coating system.
Coating is applied for various purposes. Various herbs and spices may be added to the batter, allowing different flavours to be applied to potato chips, wedges or slices. Another reason to apply coating may be to make potato chips more crispy. Thanks to an almost invisible layer of starch, a more crispy crust will appear, allowing the potato chips to be crispy for longer and retain their heat. Potato chips produced in this way offer great advantages for drive-in restaurants and fast-food chains.
