How to filter your Velocity Pressure Fryer

Fried foods are a staple in many restaurants, but to keep those crispy, golden delights coming, it’s important to take good care of your Henny Penny Velocity Fryer. One of the most important steps in maintaining your fryer is regularly filtering the oil. Not only does this help extend the life of the oil, but it also keeps your fried foods tasting and looking their best. So, let’s get our fryer in tip-top shape with this fun guide on how to filter it!

The Velocity Pressure Fryer is meant for large volume on fresh breaded products which means lot of debris or fall off. If not taken care of properly this debris can sit and scorch which will shorten the length of your fryer oil and affect the taste of your products. One of our favorite features about the Velocity Pressure Fryer is that it will automatically drop the oil and filter it after every cook cycle. This can give you 300% more oil life then its predecessor. These huge savings are great and automatic but if you ever want to run a filter manually here is how you do it.

Step 1: How to start the filter

start by pressing and holding the menu button for 3 seconds. Once the menu comes up choose option 1 for Filter and then option 1 again for Quick Filter. The panel will ask you to confirm and hit yes.

Step 2: Sit back, relax, and brush if needed

The pump motor will automatically cut on and drain the oil and any debris that may be left in your frying vat. This is a great time to scrub your vat with a gong brush [Henny Penny part number 12116]  if you notice and residue on the side of your vat.

Step 3: Wait for your filter to finish and start cookin’

After a few dozen seconds the oil will return to the fill line now clean of any debris and raising back to the fill line. At the end of the fill cycle you will see your control panel show a countdown timer to let you know when the filter is complete.

And thats all there is to it. Even filtering manually is a breeze with the Velocity Pressure Fryer, but don’t forget this unit will handle most of the leg work by running one of these filters automatically after every cook cycle.
