3.0 INTRODUCTION
DESCRIPTION
All electrically powered kettles described and referred to in this manual are pressure
vessels of a double-wall construction forming a sealed jacket (chamber) enveloping the
lower two thirds of the kettle bowl surface.
The kettle bowl is the container for the food product which ideally should be a liquid or
semi-liquid consistency to achieve complete contact with the bowl surface. Food
products will fully absorb the heat transmitted through that surface from the pressurized
steam generated in the kettle jacket.
The jacket is intended to function as a self contained sealed chamber with a permanent
solution of water and antifreeze sufficient not only to immerse and thereby protect
replaceable electric heating elements, but also provide the steam source during the
steam generating process.
The heating elements are thermostatically controlled to provide precise temperatures
throughout the range from slow simmer to rolling boil.
All tilting kettles are intended to be permanently floor mounted on legs with adjustable
flanged feet.
A sealed stainless steel tilt mechanism permits the kettle to tilt forward a full 90º for
complete emptying. The tilting mechanism is self locking for positive stop action.
CAPACITIES
All models are suffixed with either - 20, - 30, - 40, - 60, - 80 or -100 to indicate the
capacity of that kettle in US gallons. Thus an KLT-40E indicates a two thirds jacketed
electrically powered steam kettle mounted on legs with a capacity of 40 US gallons.
7
FUNCTIONING MODE
All electrically powered self steam generating kettles consist of a jacket containing a
permanent solution of water and antifreeze sufficient to completely immerse and protect
replaceable electric heating elements.
To minimize tampering, the Safety Valve is plumbed toward the rear of the kettle jacket.
Should any component malfunction and cause the pressure in the jacket to reach the
rated pressure of the kettle, this protective device will open automatically and release
excessive pressurized steam.
When the Power Switch is turned ON and the Temperature Control (Thermostat) Knob
dialed, the TEMPERATURE pilot light will light and contactors will close to allow power
to the elements. Steam generation will commence and continue until the preselected
temperature is reached, at which point the contactors open, cutting off power to heating
the elements. The TEMPERATURE pilot light will then extinguish. When the
temperature of the water in the jacket drops slightly, the cycle will repeat itself thus
making it possible to maintain any selected precise cooking mode temperature.
The temperature required for the cooking process to function adequately must be
greater than the boiling point of the liquid food product. Further, the higher the
temperature, the greater the steam pressure attained in the jacket and consequently the
quicker the cooking process. For example, steam pressurized at 30 p.s.i. attains a
temperature of 274°F.
Since air is an unsuitable media through which heat may be transferred, it has been
removed from the kettle jacket during testing at the factory. The Pressure Gauge should
indicate vacuum in the jacket in green zone on the gauge (approximately 20 - 25 inches
Hg) when the kettle is cold or has been inoperative for some time. The kettle jacket is
intended to function at all times as a completely sealed self-contained chamber and it is
especially advisable not to trip the safety relief valve during inoperative periods since this
will break the vacuum seal and allow air to enter the kettle jacket.
The Temperature Controls (thermostats) used in these kettles have been calibrated to
prevent the heating elements from generating steam pressure that would exceed the
rated working pressure of the kettle. In the unlikely event that the Temperature Control
fails and the heating elements remain energized, the Safety Valve will blow and release
the excessive pressure and steam from the jacket, consequently lowering the water level
in the jacket. The Safety Probe sensing depletion of the water level in the kettle jacket
will not only activate the LOW WATER level indicator pilot light, but also signal the Liquid
Level Control to switch off power and de-energize the circuit to the heating elements
(preventing element burn outs) until the water level is adequately replenished.

4.0 OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: The kettle and its parts are hot. Use care when
operating, cleaning and servicing the kettle.
1. Ensure that the external electrical service to kettle is on.
2. Check pressure gauge for correct cold kettle reading. Reading should be in the
green area of the gauge indicating 25 - 30 In. Hg (630 - 730 mm Hg) of vacuum. If
reading is not low enough, follow VENTING procedure in Troubleshooting section
prior to using kettle.
3. Place power switch to ON position.
4. Preheat kettle by placing thermostat knob at ‘10' and wait until TEMPERATURE light
goes off.
NOTE: Preheating should not be used when cooking milk and egg food products
which adhere to hot cooking surfaces. These foods should be placed into kettle
before heating has begun.
5. Add food to be cooked into kettle.

5.0 CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
CAUTION: Do not use cleaning agents that are corrosive.
WARNING: Disconnect the power supply to the appliance before
cleaning or servicing.
WARNING: Never spray water into electric controls or components!
CAUTION: The equipment and its parts are hot. Use care when
operating, cleaning and servicing.
Your kettle should be cleaned immediately after each use or when cooking a different
product. Before cleaning, check that the kettle has cooled enough to touch it.
1. Rinse the inside of the kettle thoroughly and drain to remove any food particles.
2. Using a nylon brush, clean the kettle with a mild detergent and water. Never use
steel wool or scouring powder as it will scratch stainless steel. Plain steel wool can
leave small pieces of steel which can rust.
3. Rinse the inside of the kettle thoroughly with clean water. Drain the kettle by tilting or
using the optional tangent draw-off valve to allow the detergent and water solution to
drain.
4. Wipe the exterior of the kettle with a clean, damp cloth.
WARNING: If you are cleaning a valve that is assembled to a kettle,
be sure the kettle is completely empty of any product.
11
DRAW-OFF VALVE CLEANING
1. If equipped with a tangent draw-off valve, turn the large hex nut on the draw-off valve
counter clockwise until it is completely disengaged from the threads. Grasp the
valve knob and slowly pull out the valve stem. Wash the valve stem, disk and
handle. Insert a nylon brush, wet with detergent and water, into the valve body and
tangent draw-off tube. Brush vigorously.
2. Replace the valve stem assembly and turn the hex nut until snug. Rinse the kettle
with clean warm water.
3. Leave the draw-off valve open when the kettle is not in use.
DAIRY DRAW-OFF VALVE CLEANING
1. Remove the plug by first removing the handle, then turn the plug to line up with the
pin and pull with both hands. It is important to use both hands because the plug is
heavy.
2. Put the plug in a plastic pail that contains a mild soap solution. A plastic pail works
best, as it reduces the possibility of nicking or scratching the plug. If the plug gets
scratched it may not seal correctly and could leak.
3. Use a soft cloth or soft brush and clean all surfaces.
4. Using both hands remove the valve from the soap and rinse well in another plastic
pail that contains fresh water.
5. Wash out the kettle as normal.
6. Return the plug into the body. Be sure the plug is inserted into the notch and turned.
Ensure the plug is tight and secure before letting go of it.
If you are cleaning a body and plug assembly, remove the plug and follow the above
procedures when finished with the plug, follow the same instructions for washing the
body. Always use both hands when handling the plugs. Reassemble the plug into the
body and use as normal.
WHAT TO DO IF SURFACE RUST APPEARS
Metal utensils should never be used as they will scratch the surface of the equipment
and rust may begin to form. To remove surface accumulation of rust from the
inadvertent use of such utensils, the following procedure may be used.
CAUTION: Improper use of this procedure may damage your
appliance!
12
1. Use undiluted white vinegar with a non-abrasive scouring pad (plastic) or cloth on the
affected area to remove the rust stain. The appliance should not be heated and
remain at room temperature during the entire cleaning process.
2. If the stain resists removal, additional exposure time with vinegar may be required, to
a maximum of one hour.
3. Thoroughly wash all of the vinegar away with fresh clear water. Dry the surface
completely and allow one hour before using the appliance to cook.
Following daily and period maintenance procedures will prolong the life for your
equipment. Climatic conditions - salt air - may require more thorough and frequent
cleaning or the life of the equipment could be adversely affected.
STAINLESS STEEL
To remove normal dirt, grease or product residue from stainless steel, use ordinary soap
and water (with or without detergent) applied with a sponge or cloth. Dry thoroughly with
a clean cloth. Never use vinegar or any other corrosive cleaner.
To remove grease and food splatters or condensed vapors that have baked on the
equipment, apply cleanser to a damp cloth or sponge and rub cleanser on the metal in
the direction of the polishing lines. Rubbing cleanser as gently as possible in the
direction of the polished lines will not mar the finish of the stainless steel. NEVER RUB
WITH A CIRCULAR MOTION.
Soil and burn deposits which do not respond to the above procedure can usually be
removed by rubbing the surface with SCOTCH-BRITE™ scouring pads or STAINLESS
scouring pads. DO NOT USE ORDINARY STEEL WOOL as any particles left on the
surface will rust and further spoil the appearance of the finish. NEVER USE A WIRE
BRUSH, STEEL SCOURING PADS (EXCEPT STAINLESS), SCRAPER, FILE OR
OTHER STEEL TOOLS. Surfaces which are marred collect dirt more rapidly and
become more difficult to clean. Marring also increases the possibility of corrosive attack.
Refinishing may then be required.
TO REMOVE HEAT TINT: Darkened areas sometimes appear on stainless steel
surfaces where the area has been subjected to excessive heat. These darkened areas
are caused by thickening of the protective surface of the stainless steel and is not
harmful. Heat tint can normally be removed by the foregoing, but tint which does not
respond to this procedure calls for a vigorous scouring in the direction of the polish lines
using SCOTCH-BRITE™ scouring pads or a STAINLESS scouring pad in combination
with a powdered cleanser. Heat tint action may be lessened by not applying or by
reducing heat to equipment during slack periods.
All food contact surfaces must be thoroughly drained and flushed prior to cooking in the
kettle.
CONTROL PANEL: The textured control panel should be cleaned with warm water and
mild soap. Never use an abrasive cloth or steel wool. Never use cleaning solvents with
a hydrocarbon base.
13
6.0 GENERAL MAINTENANCE
No general maintenance is required other than adhering to the Cleaning Procedure
instructions.
WARNING: Contact the factory, the factory representative or local service
company to perform maintenance and repairs.
SAFETY VALVE MAINTENANCE AND TESTING
CAUTION! Under normal operating conditions a “try lever test”
should be performed every two months. Under severe service
conditions, or if corrosion and/or deposits are noticed within the
valve body, testing must be performed more often. A “try lever test”
should also be performed at the end of any non-service period.
CAUTION! Hot, high pressure fluid may be discharged from body
drain and vent during “try lever” test. Care must be taken to avoid
any bodily contact.
CAUTION! High sound levels may be experienced during “try lever”
test. Wear proper safety equipment and exercise extreme care! Test
at, or near, half of the operating pressure by holding the test lever
fully open for at least two seconds to flush the valve seat free of
sediment and debris. Then release lever and permit the valve to
snap shut.
If lift lever does not activate, or there is no evidence of discharge,
turn off equipment immediately and contact a licensed contractor or
qualified service personnel.
14
7.0 TROUBLESHOOTING
7.1 LOW WATER LEVEL
Proper water level must be maintained within the jacket for the kettle to operate.
Depletion of water may occur from excessive opening of or leakage through the safety
relief valve.
If water is below required operating level, either initially at start-up or during use, the
kettle will automatically shut off and the LOW WATER signal light will come on.
In order for the kettle to operate, the following procedure must be followed:
The kettle must be cool before proceeding with the following steps.
1. Trip the safety relief valve lever to relieve all pressure from the kettle jacket.
2. At exterior rear of kettle jacket remove nut from Air Vent.
3. Insert funnel into Air Vent opening and slowly add the indicated amount of clean
water for:

7.0 TROUBLESHOOTING (Continued)
7.2 EXTREMELY SLOW COOKING TIME
1. If the cooking time is abnormally slow, then the difficulty may be due to air being present in
the kettle jacket. To remove air, follow AIR VENTING INSTRUCTIONS.
2. If the kettle will not reach and maintain Pressure Gauge zone in the green area on the
gauge when cold, a slow leak may have developed in the jacket. Check all fitting
connections to jacket including the heating element gasket. Tighten or replace if
necessary.
3. Slow cooking time may also be due to a burnt out heating element. Test elements and if
defective, replace complete element assembly.
7.3 KETTLE WILL NOT OPERATE WHEN TURNED ON
1. Check that power supply is available to kettle.
2. Kettle will not operate if water level is inadequate in jacket. Follow LOW WATER LEVEL
instructions.
3. If water level is sufficient and kettle refuses to operate, then check that Tilt Interlock
Switch in Console is fully engaged when kettle is in its normally upright position.
Adjust Retaining Tilt Collar if necessary to assure complete contact with switch and if
kettle still does not operate, then check for defective switch and/or loose wiring
connections.
4. When Thermostat Knob is dialed and TEMPERATURE indicator light does not come
on, then it may be due to either a defective Thermostat or loose wiring connection(s).
5. Check that the Contactor(s) are being energized and power is being made available
to the heating elements when thermostat is dialed. Replace defective Contactor(s).
7.4 DRAW-OFF VALVE LEAKS
If leak occurs through the valve stem, replace the “O” ring. If the leak is caused by faulty
sealing between the stem disc and valve seat, this can be corrected by cleaning off dried
on food residue with an extremely fine emery cloth. If the vulcanized rubber stem piece
has been damaged, it must be replaced.
NOTICE: Draw-Off Valve has a vulcanized rubber coated stem for better sealing.
Do not over-tighten. This may cause the rubber to pull away from stem and
permanently damage it. This is not covered under warranty.
16
7.5 AIR VENTING INSTRUCTIONS
Check vacuum/pressure gauge when the kettle is cold. Gauge should be in the green
vacuum zone, indicating a vacuum between 25-30 In. Hg (630 - 730 mm Hg). If not, air
must be vented (removed) for proper heating. Use the following procedures to vent air.
1. Place power switch ON with kettle empty.
2. Set temperature control thermostat to ‘10'. Heat kettle until indicator light goes off.
3. Using a 7/16" wrench, open bleed vent one full turn for 10 seconds and then close.
(Located on back of kettle, before pressure relief valve.)
WARNING: SCALD HAZARD. Live steam will escape the bleed
nut when opened. Stay clear of live steam when performing this
operation.
4. Cool kettle. Check for proper vacuum in green area of gauge. If vacuum was not
established, repeat steps 1 - 4.

2. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Clear yellow liquid. Odorless. Avoid temperatures above 450°F, 232°C.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS (See Section 11 for toxicological data.)
EYE: May cause slight transient (temporary) eye irritation. Corneal injury is unlikely.
Mists may cause eye irritation.
SKIN CONTACT: Prolonged contact is essentially non-irritating to skin. A single
prolonged exposure is not likely to result in the material being absorbed through skin in
harmful amounts. Repeated exposures may cause flaking and softening of skin.
INGESTION: Single dose oral toxicity is considered to be extremely low. No hazards
anticipated from swallowing small amounts incidental to normal handling operations.
INHALATION: At room temperature, vapours are minimal due to physical properties.
Mists may cause irritation of upper respiratory tract (nose and throat).
SYSTEMIC (OTHER TARGET ORGAN) EFFECTS: Repeated excessive exposure to
propylene glycol may cause central nervous system effects.
CANCER INFORMATION: Did not cause cancer in laboratory animals.
TERATOLOGY (BIRTH DEFECTS): Birth defects are unlikely. Exposures having no
adverse effects on the mother should have no effect on the fetus.
REPRODUCTIVE EFFECTS: In animal studies, has been shown not to interfere with
reproduction.

HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: During a fire, smoke may contain the
original material in addition to unidentified toxic and/or irritating compounds. Hazardous
combustion products may include and are not limited to carbon monoxide and carbon
dioxide.
OTHER FLAMMABILITY INFORMATION: Violent steam generation or eruption may
occur upon application of direct water stream to hot liquids. Flammable concentrations
of vapour can accumulate at temperatures above 214°F. Liquid mist of this product can
burn. Spills of these organic liquids on hot fibrous insulations may lead to lowering of
the autoignition temperatures possibly resulting in spontaneous combustion. Container
may rupture from gas generation in a fire situation.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Water fog or fine spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical, foam.
Alcohol resistant foams (ATC type) are preferred if available. General purpose synthetic
foams (including AFFF) or protein foams may function, but much less effectively. Do not
use direct water stream. May spread fire.
MEDIA TO BE AVOIDED: Do not use direct water stream.
FIRE FIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS: Keep people away. Isolate fire area and deny
unnecessary entry. Burning liquids may be moved by flushing with water to protect
personnel and minimize property damage. Burning liquids may be extinguished by
dilution with water. Do not use direct water stream. May spread fire. Fight fire from
protected location or safe distance. Consider use of unmanned hose holder or monitor
nozzles. Use water spray to cool fire exposed containers and fire affected zone until fire
is out and danger of re-ignition has passed. Immediately withdraw all personnel from
area in case of rising sound from venting safety device or discolouration of the container.
Move container from fire area if this is possible without hazard.
PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT FOR FIRE FIGHTERS: Wear positive-pressure selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and protective fire fighting clothing (includes fire
fighting helmet, coat, pants, boots and gloves). If protective equipment is not available
or not used, fight fire from a protected location or safe distance.

EYE/FACE PROTECTION: Use safety glasses. Safety glasses should be sufficient for
most operations; however, for misty operations wear chemical goggles.
SKIN PROTECTION: Use gloves impervious to this material.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Atmospheric levels should be maintained below the
exposure guideline. When respiratory protection is required for certain operations, use
an approved air-purifying respirator. In misty atmospheres, use an approved mist
respirator.
