Model CCL Lattice Potato Chip Slicer

Creates Unique Appearance for Specialty Products

  • Unique lattice appearance. Both sides of the latice slice have interlaced crinkles running approximately 90° to each other.
  • Popular application to produce lattice potato chips and thicker potato waffle fries.
  • Proper feeding of oval or flat-shaped potatoes measuring between 2 to 4 inches is essential.
  • Model CC Slicers can be converted to Model CCL Lattice Slicers. Contact Urschel for additional information.

Applications

The Model CCL slicer produces lattice cuts of varying thickness. Both sides of the slice have crinkles, with the crinkles on each side of the slice running approximately 90° to each other. Uses involve lattice potato chips and thicker potato waffle fries.

Lattice slicing is a unique application. Proper feeding of the machine is necessary to ensure continuous production. Tempered high quality oval or flat shaped potatoes measuring between 2 – 4 inches (51 – 102 mm) are best-suited.

Note: The Model CC Slicer can be converted to a Model CCL Lattice Slicer by purchasing the recommended set of parts. Contact your local Urschel representative for more information.

Dimensional Drawing

Operating Principle

Model CCL Lattice Potato Chip Slicer

  1. Product delivered to the feed hopper enters the revolving impeller assembly [ 1 ],
  2. consisting of four rotating potato holding tubes [ 2 ]. The tubes allow the potato to be rotated in a vertical axis while being revolved in a radial direction.
  3. Centrifugal force holds the potatoes tightly against the inside surface of the spherical-shaped slicing head. As the potatoes rotate inside the slicing head, they make an approximate one-quarter turn between each of the four crinkle knife stations [ 3 ]. This results in intersecting crinkles on each side of the slice.

Types of Cuts
