Introduction

Specific Precautions

Risk of fire exists if the oil level drops below 5mm of the maximum oil level.

Use of oil/shortening older than the manufacturers recommendations for life of the oil is prone to surge boiling and flash fires. Follow the oil manufacturers guidelines for the life cycle of oil/shortening.

Do not open the drain valve or the fill valve while the fryer is under pressure.

Serious burns may result.

Follow operator instructions regarding effects of surge boiling of over-wetfoods and proper load size.

This unit may incorporate components that contain Mercury. The use of Mercury relays is an industry standard.

Equipotential ground plane

When a high current flows through a conductor, differences in potential appear between the conductor and nearby metallic surfaces near the appliance. As a result, sparks may be produced between the appliance and surrounding metal surfaces. These sparks could cause serious injury, damage, or fire.

BKI provides an Equipotential ground terminal for the connection of a bonding conductor after the installation of the appliance per lEC60417-1.This terminal is located on the inside of the Power Entry Supply box near the Earth connection and is marked with this symbol.

Full Disconnection

In accordance with Local and/or National wiring codes, the installer must provide a means of full disconnection under over voltage Category III conditions. An IEC approved cord and plug combination will meet this requirement.

Units not provided with a cord and plug do not meet this requirement. In accordance with Local and/or National wiring codes, the installer must provide the means of full disconnection.

The fryer is designed to hold a maximum of 48 lb (21.8 kg) of oil/shortening.

Safe Work Practices

Noncombustible Floors Only

Make sure your floor is noncombustible. Do not operate your fryer on floors that are wood, carpeted or have rubber mats.

Placing your fryer on a combustible floor could cause a fire. Serious injury could result.

Examples of noncombustible floors where you can safely place your fryer are concrete, tile, and ceramic.

Keep The Area Around Your Fryer

Uncluttered

Make sure to keep the area around your fryer clear of any obstacles.

Serious injury can occur if you trip or fall near the fryer. You could be burned by hot shortening that splashes out of the fryer or by falling against the hot metal of the fryer.

Keep The Floor Around Your Fryer Clean Of

Shortening

Make sure to keep the floor around your fryer clean of shortening and other liquids.

Serious injury can occur if you slip near your fryer. You could be burned by hot shortening that splashes out of the fryer or by falling against the hot metal of the fryer.

Keep The Casters Locked

To avoid spilling shortening, keep the casters locked. If any shortening spills near your fryer, clean it up immediately.

Introduction

 

 

Do Not Overfill The Fryer With Shortening

Hot shortening and steam may escape and burn you if you put too much shortening in the fryer. Fill the fryer to approximately one inch below the fill marks that are inside the fryer pot. Heat the shortening. If needed, carefully add more shortening to bring the level to the fill marks.

Do Not Let Any Water Get Into The Fryer

Always remove excess moisture from food before placing it into the fryer basket. Water will cause the hot shortening to spatter. You could be burned.

Do Not Overload The Basket With Food

Hot shortening and steam may escape and burn you if you place too much food in the basket.

Wear Safe Clothing Appropriate To Your Job

Always wear your insulated mitts when handling the fryer basket or touch any hot metal surfaces. You received a pair of insulated mitts with your fryer. If you lose or damage your mitts, you can buy new ones at your local restaurant equipment supply store or from your local BKI Distributor.

Always wear non-skidshoes when working around the fryer or any other equipment that uses shortening. Never wear loose clothing such as neckties or scarves while operating your fryer. Keep loose hair tied back or in a hair net while operating your fryer.

Always wear appropriate personal protection equipment during the filtering process to guard against possible injury from hot oil.

Always wear appropriate personal protection equipment during the boil-outprocess to guard against possible injury from hot cleaning solution.
