Benefits of Hot Oil Snack Filtration with the Oberlin Filter for Snack Products

Increase Oil Life with High Efficiency Filtration Down to 1 Micron
The Oberlin Filter is the ONLY automatic filter capable of removing almost all 1 micron particles. Oil can be preserved and reused indefinitely. Maintain oil quality and snack food processing standards throughout the frying process.

Removal of Removal of Free Fatty Acids (FFA’s) and Total Polar Compounds (TPC’s)
The Oberlin Filter provides ultra fine filtration that can remove Free Fatty Acids (FFA’s) and Total Polar Compounds (TPC’s) to bring your oil back to its virgin quality so it can be continually reused.

Extremely Clean Oil and Dry Filtered Solids
The Oberlin Filter will provide your fryer with a very clean supply of oil online during production or offline in a batch filtration process. Crumbs, fines and flour are automatically dried within the filter and discharged into a bin for easy disposal.
