Description / Abstract:


This publication represents a basic standard for safe operation, substantial and durable construction, and acceptable performance of a gas food service deep fat fryer. It is the result of years of experience in the manufacture, testing, installation, maintenance, inspection and research on deep fat fryers designed for utilization of gas. There are risks of injury to persons inherent in some appliances that, if completely eliminated, would defeat the utility of the appliance. The provisions in this standard are intended to reduce such risks while retaining the normal operation of the appliance.

Nothing in this standard is to be considered in any way as indicating a measure of quality beyond compliance with the provisions it contains. It is designed to allow compliance of food service deep fat fryer, the construction and performance of which may exceed the various provisions specified herein. In its preparation, full recognition has been given to possibilities of improvement through ingenuity of design. As progress takes place, revisions may become necessary. When they are believed desirable, recommendations should be forwarded to the Chairman of Accredited Standards Committee 283,8501 East Pleasant Valley Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44131, or the Chairman of the Canadian Gas Association Standards Steering Committee on Gas Burning Appliances and Related Accessories, 55 Scarsdale Road, Don Mills, Ontario, Canada, M3B 2R3.

Safe and satisfactory operation of a food service deep fat fryer depends to a great extent upon its proper installation. It should be installed, as applicable, in accordance with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI 2223.1; the Natural Gas Installation Code, CAN/CGAB149.1; the Propane Insta├╝ation Code, CAXVCGA-B149.2, manufadurer's installation instructions and local municipal building codes.

Users of this American National Standard/Candian Gas Association Standard are advised that the devices, products and activities within its scope may be subject to regulation at the Federal, Territorial, Provincial, state or local level. Users are strongly urged to investigate this possibility through appropriate channels. In the event of a conflict with this standard, the Federal, Territorial, Provincial, state or local regdation should be followed
