New tools for productivity from Heat and Control at TIA Expo
Heat and Control offers a sneak peek at its latest equipment developments for corn products frying, oil filtration, conveying, weighing, seasoning, packaging, and inspection. Visit TIA booth 229 for details.
Fryers for superior corn products
For the highest quality corn and tortilla chips, tostadas, taco shells, chimichangas, and other products, Heat and Control fryers provide precise control of oil flow, temperature, and fines removal. The unique oil inlet clears product from the infeed area and eliminates back eddies. Oil temperature remains within +1°F of the set point, and 100% of the system oil volume is filtered once every minute.
Sub-micron oil filtration without paper
Without filter paper, additives, or consumables, Micron-Pro filters cooking oil to the sub-micron level at rates up to 65 gallons/minute. It can pay for itself within a year, depending on the application.
Use oven exhaust heat to save energy
Recover heat from toaster oven exhaust to reduce fuel costs to heat your fryer’s cooking oil with the Energy Recovery Heat Exchanger.
FastBack FDXTMfor conveyor runs to 100 feet
40% smaller than comparable inertia drive horizontal motion conveyors, FDX handles runs up to 100 feet long and up to 300 cubic feet of product accumulation. Like other FastBack conveyors, FDX reduces product damage, prevents separation of blends, is easy to clean, quiet, and needs no preventive maintenance.
Improve seasoning coverage with Revolution OMS
Apply seasonings in the packaging room to improve coverage, production flexibility, and reduce warehousing. Now, our new AccuCoat tumble drum reduces standard deviation of chip-to-chip dwell time by over 30%, even during variations in throughput.
Fast, accurate, sanitary weighing
15% higher speed, unbeatable accuracy, auto set-up, and wireless access are just the start: Ishida RV-series weighers are IP66, IP67 and IP69K rated and feature sloped surfaces to eliminate bacteria traps and simplify cleaning.
Common sense snack bagmaker
Why pay for bagmaking features you don’t use? Ishida Atlas 233 vertical form-fill-seal bagmakers are designed for chips packaged in the 80 to 120 bpm range. Its continuous motion single sealing jaw outperforms intermittent motion bagmakers and produces tight, wrinkle-free seals for bag sizes from 3” to 13” wide and 5” to 28” long. Atlas 233 is available in stand-alone or direct-mount models with a single tube format or nested for twin-tube applications.

X-ray for maximum product safety
In addition to detecting metal, plastic, rocks, and other foreign objects, Ishida IX-GA Series X-ray inspection systems can detect product damage, missing items, and weight accuracy.
