|Publication Date:||10 April 1999|
|ICS Code (Buildings for commerce and industry):||91.040.20|
1.1 This test method evaluates the energy consumption and cooking performance of pressure and kettle fryers. The food service operator can use this evaluation to select a fryer and understand its energy efficiency and production capacity.
1.2 This test method is applicable to floor model natural gas and electric units with a 25 to 70-lb oil capacity.
1.3 The fryer can be evaluated with respect to the following:
1.3.1 Energy input rate (10.2),
1.3.2 Preheat energy and time (10.4),
1.3.3 Idle energy rate (10.5),
1.3.4 Pilot energy rate (10.6, if applicable),
1.3.5 Cooking energy rate and efficiency (10.9), and
1.3.6 Production capacity (10.9).
1.4 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
