Suitable for Aries, Merlin and some Bitterling machines.
The woven oil fat filter papers are ideal for shops looking to optimise food quality and take advantage of potential savings in oil usage provided by filter machines. Daily filtration enhances food appearance, taste and quality and increases the active life of cooking oil or fat used in fryers by up to 80%. All this can easily be achieved by using this filter paper.
Filtration should be completed as often as possible but no less than twice a day with one always at the end of the day so that particles are not left in the pan overnight. Pans should always be switched off prior to filtering and left for about 10-15 mins to allow the heat from the burner to disperse from the bottom of the pan, otherwise the heat may affect the durability of the metal used for pans. Built-in filtration is obviously safer than external because the hot oil is confined within the pipework of the frying range.
The minimum temperature of the oil/fat should be about 120ºC. The maximum temperature is relevant to type of filtration fitted. As an example, the lifespan of a miroil filter bag will be reduced by high temperatures. It is very important that the pan is switched off for a period to allow the heat in the metal to cool.

Can these filters be washed?
No, they are single use only.
How often should I change my filter paper?
This will differ on depending how busy your shop is. We would recommend daily. If you are a busy shop that opens long days you may find you need more than one a day. The difference between a 2 pan range and 5 pan range will obviously impact on how often you change.
