What is White Glove service?

Standard common carrier delivery options cover the cost of getting an item to your shipping address but our White Glove delivery service does that and more!

The White Glove agent will call to schedule a Call Before Delivery within a four hour window, which gives you the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and to prepare the space where your item will be placed. Upon delivery, trained professionals will unload your large item from the truck, bring it into the room of choice, unpack the item and remove all packaging debris from the premises.

Please note that White Glove delivery will typically add 5 - 7 business days to your order's transit, and only includes 30 minutes of on-site time. If on-site time beyond 30 minutes is required, you may be responsible for additional fees. While the agents will bring the items into the location of your choice, this service does not include set-up of the items being delivered, such as installation of casters, shelves, or other accessories. Small items will not be unpackaged individually; they will be set in place and debris and packaging material will not be removed.

Vulcan VK Series PowerFry

Vulcan VK Series PowerFry

When first designing and producing this fryer, we wanted something that was more productive and more energy efficient than anything else on the market. The Vulcan PowerFry is the one fryer you can buy that's going to give you more production and that's going to save you money doing it. The heat exchange tube is a very innovative design. In a traditional fryer, you have a heat source that has one pass basically and it goes from the heat source, through the tube or along the side of the fryer, and then up the flue. Most of the industry fryers, they have one pass heat exchange tubes. We said why not bend that a couple times? Why not use every angle, every side of the tank as a way to heat the oil up? The more times you move that heat back and forth through the oil, the more opportunity it has for that heat to absorb into that oil so that you have less heat exiting the fryer, thus having lower flue stack temperatures. According to Energy Star, we are the highest energy efficient fryer on the market. Customers can go to our website and they can see how fast they're going to save money on the Vulcan PowerFry simply by using our calculator and immediately see compared to our competitors how much money they're going to save using the Vulcan PowerFry. With the soft-start heat ignition system, it allows us to heat the fryer at a lower rate, thus extending out the life of the oil because we have so much heat distribution, we don't lose time in heating up to the set temperature. This PowerFry model is set up to demonstrate the 3 different types of controls that we offer. We have an "A" control, which is our analog solid state control, the solid state digital control, and a computer control. We have a major casino that purchased 2 Vulcan PowerFry units because they were having trouble keeping up with the high volume in their buffet lines. They were getting 6 drops of wings every hour. We put our PowerFry 45 lb. VK high-efficiency fryer in there and we were able to get 9 drops out of it. Huge cost savings to them, but primarily they were able to keep those buffet lines served. We've had great success. We have a lot of chains that are taking a really close look at it because it allows them to do something they can't do, and that's get more production in a very small amount of real estate. It uses our KleenScreen Plus fabric filtration which gives them the ability to filter down to half a micron. It takes out all the particulates that are in the oil and then extends out the life of the oil even further. We put a 10 year warranty on the fry tank. We are very confident that people are going to be using this fry tank 10 years from now. Our customers are looking for a way of saving money, conserving energy, and trying to meet that need by putting together a fryer that would out-perform all of our competitors. The product is done to perfection. We're able to cook more product in less time and also save energy and cost to the end user.

Customer questions about this product

My business is at a high elevation; does this change anything when I order gas cooking equipment?
Many gas equipment manufacturers need to make adjustments to the equipment so it operates correctly at elevations over 2,000 feet. Sometimes we can special order from the manufacturer and have your cooking equipment delivered ready-to-go, but in cases where your unit is in stock and waiting to ship, you’ll need to have a qualified service technician come to your location and alter your unit at the time of installation so that it is compatible with a higher elevation. Contact our Special Orders team prior to placing your order, and we will let you know what will work best for the equipment you are planning to purchase.

Vulcan 1VK45D-2 Details

Deliver basket after basket of freshly fried foods to your customers with this Vulcan 1VK45D-2 PowerFry5 45-50 lb. liquid propane floor fryer with solid state digital controls! With an oil capacity of 45-50 lb., this unit is packed with great benefits to make your frying experience as easy and efficient as possible. Boasting a 14" x 14" frying area, this tube-style fryer delivers 70,000 BTU of power and comes with 2 twin fry baskets, so you can get to frying as soon as you fill the tank!

Equipped with digital controls, this unit features 2 countdown timers, compensating time adjustment, and an automated temperature control boil-out mode. The temperature can be adjusted from 200-390 degrees Fahrenheit, and the control allows the unit to react within 2 degrees Fahrenheit of the set temperature, which provides faster recovery and improves overall performance. A SoftStart ignition system combines with 3 selectable melt modes to allow you to gradually heat up your oil and help preserve its life, while also using less BTUs. By maintaining an idle temperature setting that only uses 4251 BTU of power, the fryer conserves energy and proves to be a very efficient addition to your equipment lineup.

This fryer features Vulcan's exclusive FivePass heat transfer system that passes heat to the oil for a much quicker recovery, yielding 66% cooking and 78% thermal efficiency. At its maximum production rate, the flue temperatures are less than 500 degrees Fahrenheit! Plus, to ensure safety for all employees, a hi-limit indicator shuts off the gas connection and standing pilot if the oil temperatures get too high. A large V-shaped cold zone at the bottom of the fry tank prevents crumbs and other debris from burning, which extends the life of your shortening and improves the taste of the product. A 1 1/4" full port drain valve makes oil removal a quick and hassle-free process.

Both the cabinet and fry tank are comprised of rugged stainless steel that's designed to withstand the hustle and bustle of a busy commercial kitchen. To aid in the cleaning process, the unit comes with a tank brush and clean out rod. When you need to clean behind the fryer, the 6" casters provide easy maneuverability.
