Designed for fryers that don’t have built-in filtering, the Pitco P18 portable filter system contains a high-suction hose, filter pan, and catch basket to catch drained oil and pump as much as 5.6 gallons of oil per minute. The filter system uses a suction mechanism with its 5-foot flexible return hose for quick connection and disassembly; it works with gravity drain fryers. Its 1/3-horsepower motor and pump assembly ensure intense suction, so oil is filtered properly for future use. Because oil is warm when drained, the hose is constructed of nickel-plated steel, which prevents heat conduction when used. The system’s low profile fits underneath the fryer drain to collect oil carefully in its extra-large filter area. Able to collect 75 pounds of oil, the filter can be used for different fryer sizes and capacities; it’s a versatile tool in kitchens with more than one fryer.
The Pitco P18 portable filter system is equipped with four ball-bearing swivel casters, so the device can be moved beneath fryers; when inactive, operators can push the system into storage. Maintenance for the filter system is relatively low. The pan and pump assembly are made of polished stainless steel, and other surfaces are coated in a nickel-plated finish, so surfaces can be wiped down quickly and aren’t prone to corrosion in wet environments. Cleaning requires removing the filter pan, which can be lifted from the system. The filter assembly also can be removed to replace filter paper. When oil must be drained from the system, operators can activate the drain nipple to prevent oil from splashing. Overall, the system comes with a 10-foot oil-proof supply cord, sample filter paper, sample filter powder packets, and one sediment clean-out scoop.
