KETTLES, MODELS EL-20F TO EL-60F, EP-20F TO EP-60F
INTRODUCTION
3.0 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 kettle bowl
surface.
The kettle bowl is the container for the food product which ideally should be a liquid or semiliquid consistency to achieve complete contact with the bowl surface and thus 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 dial controlled to provide precise temperatures
throughout the range from slow simmer to rolling boil.
All stationary kettles are intended to be permanently floor mounted on legs with adjustable
flanged feet (EL models) or pedestals (EP models).
All kettles are equipped with a spring assist stainless steel lid covering the kettle bowl opening,
a sanitary stainless steel tangent draw-off valve for the removal of the food product from the
kettle bowl, and a safety relief valve plumbed to the kettle jacket.
4.0 CAPACITIES
All models are suffixed with either - 20F, - 30F, - 40F, or - 60F to indicate the capacity of that
kettle in US gallons. Thus an EL-40F indicates a full jacketed electrically powered steam kettle
mounted on legs with a capacity of 40 US gallons.

KETTLES, MODELS EL-20F TO EL-60F, EP-20F TO EP-60F
6.0 FUNCTIONING MODE
All electrically powered self steam generating kettles consist of a jacket charged with a 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
simultaneously, TEMPERATURE pilot light will come on and contactors will close to allow
power to elements. Steam generation will commence and continue until the water contained in
the jacket reaches the thermostatic temperature, manually preselected, at which point the
Temperature (thermostat) Control will de-energize and open the contactors cutting off power to
heating elements and TEMPERATURE pilot light will go off. 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 274º Fahrenheit.
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 the green vacuum zone on the gauge (approximately 20 to 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.
It should be noted that Temperature Controls (thermostats) used on these particular kettles
have an ultimate high limit temperature and this setting will prevent the heating elements from
ever generating steam pressure to reach or exceed the rated working pressure of these kettles.
Further should the Temperature Control fail, an unlikely condition, and consequently the circuit
to the heating elements remain energized, the Safety Valve will blow and release steam (i.e.,
water) from the self contained sealed kettle jacket and consequently lower the water level in the
jacket. A Safety Probe is incorporated in the circuit to sense depletion of the water level in the
kettle jacket and 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.

7.0 CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS (Continued)
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.
DRAW-OFF VALVE CLEANING
1. If equipped with a tangent draw-off valve, turn the large hex nut on the draw-off valve
counterclockwise 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.

7.0 CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS (Continued)
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!
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 vapours 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.

STAINLESS STEEL (Continued)
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.

9.0 TROUBLESHOOTING (Continued)
9.2 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.
9.3 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).
9.4 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.

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Clear yellow liquid. Odourless. 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 nonirritating 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

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 self-contained
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.
