When the potatoes reach the plant, it will be quality inspection and taste. Random filled dozens of barrels. Some punch at their core so that they can be tracked through the cooking process.

The potatoes are moved along the conveyor belt to the various manufacturing stages. The conveyor belt is driven by gentle vibrations to keep the break at the minimum.

Put the potatoes in a vertical screw-type screw conveyor so that the stone falls to the bottom and push the potatoes onto the conveyor belt on the automatic peeling machine. After peeling, the potatoes are washed with cold water.

Potatoes are cut into paper flakes by a rotating press / press, with a thickness between 0.066-0.072. Straight leaves produce regular fragments, while corrugated leaves produce ridge potato chips.

Slices fall into the second cold water to remove the starch released when cutting the potatoes. Some manufacturers will own the chip as a natural mineral sales, will not wash the potatoes on the starch.

Potatoes arrive at the manufacturing plant every day. After checking the quality, they are stored at constant temperature and will not be processed into potato chips. Some manufacturers use chemicals to treat potatoes to improve the color of the final product. In order to make fries, the potatoes are fried in a mixture of corn oil, cottonseed oil or vegetable oil. Flaky salt rather than crystal salt is used for seasonal chips.

At the end of the slot, the wire mesh pulls out the hot chip. As the chip moves along the mesh conveyor, excess oil is drained and the chip begins to cool. Then they move under an optical sorting machine, pick any chopped pieces and blow out with air.

The chip is conveyed to a graduated machine with a scale. When measuring the preset weight of the chip, the metal detector checks again whether the chip has any foreign matter, such as a metal sheet that may be brought with the potato or a metal sheet that is picked up during the frying process.

The bag flows down from the reel. The central processing unit (CPU) code on the bag tells the machine how many chips should be released into the bag. When the bag is formed, the door opens and allows the amount of debris to fall into the bag.

The filling process must be completed without excessive air entry into the bag while also preventing debris from breaking. Many manufacturers use nitrogen to fill the space in the bag. The sealed bag is conveyed to the finishing machine and hand-packaged into a carton.

Some companies pack potato chips in various sizes of O tanks. The chip enters the tank along the chute. The workers weigh every can, make any necessary adjustments, and attach a can.
