Henny Penny Velocity Series Open Fryer

The Henny Penny Velocity series open fryer is a modern marvel. Henny Penny's innovation created a high-volume open fryer aimed to address the concerns of rising oil and labor costs. The Velocity is a proven success for high-volume frying operations.

This fryer cooks an industry leading 8 head, or 24lb., of freshly breaded, bone-in chicken. This is roughly the same production as the legacy 8 head fryers but in 25% less oil!

Not only does this fryer save oil on the initial fill, the built-in automatic filtration helps save even more! The automatic filtration partially drains and rinses the oil after every cook process. While unloading and loading new racks, the fryer filters the oil and recovers, making it ready for the next batch.

The Velocity's Automatic top off feature monitors oil levels and replenishes from the onboard reservoir during the filter process. This infusion of fresh oil, mixed with the filtered oil really gives the oil new life. Extend oil life by 300-400%!

The Velocity is a good frying choice that saves oil, manpower, and cooking time when making crispy fried foods.
