Serviceline has beefed up its offering by becoming the UK distributor of Safe2Fry, an innovative device that measures the condition of oil, temperature and energy usage in fryers.
The stainless steel sensor can be attached to any make of fryer and displays the information on a robust data box that sits above the machine.
Serviceline chief, Steve Elliott, told Catering Insight: “Today customers do not know when to change the oil, so the purpose of the Safe2Fry monitoring system is to tell them when they should do it – not too soon and not too late. If they change it too soon they are wasting money by needlessly throwing oil away and if they change it too late they are getting a poorer cooking product and they also increase the risk of fire and safety problems.”
As well as providing kitchen staff with real time alerts when the oil needs to be changed, the device contains a USB port so that operators can assess how the machine is being used over a specific period of time.
Additionally, maintenance specialist ServiceLine confirmed it has also begun offering MaxFry, a pure vegetable ingredient for deep frying oil or fat that purports to protect the oil from fast degradation during the production process.
“It pumps a small amount of liquid into the oil and can add as much as three times to the life of the fryer,” said Elliott.
