A cooking oil filtration system is a mechanical filtration device that purifies frying oil to maintain a consistent oil quality. When oil is used in large quantities to fry food, there is a large amount of particle matter that falls off the food and mixes with the oil. Over time, the oil gains color and odor, all caused by the particles suspended in the oil. Because of this, the cooling oil looses quality due to which, batches of food fried decrease in quality and vastly very in look and taste from the intended cooking outcome.
The cooking oil filter runs oil between the fryer and its inbuilt filtration system to process the oil so that up to ninety nine percent of the cooking oil is cleaned of suspended particles. When run regularly, the cooking oil maintains its original quality for a vastly greater duration. The filter passes oil through sieve like membranes of various degrees of filtration density capturing particles as the oil passes through. The oil is then pumped back into the fryer so that the quality of the oil is maintained as close to the original as possible.
Advantages of using a filtration system
The primary and most obvious benefit that comes from using a cooking oil filtration system is the fact that the oil maintains its original consistency, taste and color. This immediately results in better consistency of the foods being prepared in the fryer. Chefs will always want to maintain the same high standards and quality in the food they prepare and a fryer with sediment from food previously prepared causes this quality to diminish. Also, particles from previously cooked food may stick onto freshly prepared food making the food taste over fried, even though it is not.
The next big advantage of using a cooking oil filtration system is the savings on time. There is a great deal of time spent in changing oil in a frying range. Once oil has been contaminated by particles and sediments to a point where it is no longer usable, the range must be allowed to sit idle while the oil cools so that it may be emptied, cleaned and then refilled with fresh oil. This process often takes hours on large ranges. The frequency of going through this entire process may be dramatically brought down by implementing a cooking oil filtration system that will filter particles from oil, even when it is hot. This will allow the fryer to be used for longer durations of time continuously.
Finally, the biggest benefit in implementing a cooking oil filtration system is monetary savings. Cooking oil requires to be changed frequently so as to maintain food quality. By decreasing the frequency that the oil needs to be changed, a restaurant or hotel immediately saves on the cost of new oil. Also, with the fryer range constantly in use, there is a greater amount of food being produced which increases the revenue potential an establishment has.
