Is this cooking equipment available in all 50 states?
Due to energy regulations this cooking equipment is not available in all 50 states.
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 4VK45DF Details
Deliver basket after basket of freshly fried foods to your customers with this Vulcan 4VK45DF-1 PowerFry5 180-200 lb. 4 unit natural gas floor fryer system with solid state digital controls and KleenScreen filtration! With an oil capacity of 180-200 lb. total, 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 per tank, this tube-style fryer system delivers 280,000 BTU of power and comes with 2 twin fry baskets per fryer, so you can get to frying as soon as you fill the tank!
Equipped with digital controls, this unit features 2 countdown timers per fryer, compensating time adjustment, and an automated temperature control boil-out mode. Each fryer's temperature can be adjusted from 200-390 degrees Fahrenheit, and the controls allow the unit to react within 2 degrees Fahrenheit of the set temperatures, which provides faster recovery and improves overall performance. A SoftStart ignition system combines with 3 selectable melt modes per tank 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 per fryer, the entire system conserves energy and proves to be a very efficient addition to your equipment lineup.
This fryer system 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 each fry tank prevents crumbs and other debris from burning, which extends the life of your shortening. For ultimate oil preservation, the KleenScreen filtration system aids by removing impurities, which improves the quality and taste of your product. A 1 1/4" full port drain valve makes oil removal a quick and hassle-free process.
The cabinet and each 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 unit, the 6" casters provide easy maneuverability. This unit requires natural gas and a 120V electrical connection for operation.
