EASTVALE, CA, February 8, 2017 –Royal Range of California, Inc. is very proud to announce that its High-Efficiency Deep Fat Fryer Model RHEF-45-CM has been selected to receive the 2017 Gas Foodservice Equipment Network Consortium (GFEN) Blue Flame “Product of the Year” Award at the upcoming NAFEM show in Orlando, FL. The ceremony is planned for opening day at the show, 10:30 am, Thursday, February 9th at Royal’s booth, #1243.
The RHEF-45-CM is the first fryer to utilize an innovative heat exchanger whose flue makes 3 passes through a series of round tubes as the heat is transmitted to the oil. The tubes are progressively reduced in size/volume to increase the velocity of flow as it exits through an induced draft blower. This results in very low carbon emission and heat output through the flue due to low gas consumption, both during idling and cooking periods.
The new model was tested by a prominent restaurant chain for months, to great satisfaction. It met and exceeded both the energy star requirements for gas savings and cooking efficiency. The even heat transfer in the cooking zone resulted in rapid and consistent product output. With zero recovery time, the fryer is ideal for high production.
“We are extremely proud of our RHEF-45-CM,” said L. Vasan, President, Royal Ranges. “The annual gas savings can be as much as 55%-60% compared to base fryers and as much as 18%-20% compared to average energy efficient fryers currently on the market. We are thrilled to be recognized by such a distinguished organization as GFEN for the innovations we’ve worked so hard to implement.”

The Product of the Year Award recognizes outstanding technology & innovation in the Gas Foodservice Industry.
