Australia Only
Keep the oil temperature in the fryer to a maximum of 190°C. Higher temperatures will cause rapid
breakdown of the oil and give you no faster cooking.
At 205°C to 210°C the life of the oil is only one-third of its life at 190°C. In addition, increased
decomposition causes the oil to smoke badly even if the temperature is lowered to 190°C again.
High temperatures give you no advantage, costs you money and increases the fire danger.

SUPER RUNNER 52 SERIES GAS FRYERS
CHAPTER 2: IMPORTANT INFORMATION
2.1 General
Dean Super Runner 52 Series gas fryers are energy-efficient, gas-fired units, design-certified by the
CSA International (AGA/CGA), NSF International and manufactured to their basic performance and
application specifications.
All units are shipped completely assembled with accessories packed inside the fry vessels. All units
are adjusted, tested and inspected at the factory before shipment. Sizes, weights and input rates of
all models are listed in this manual.
CAUTION
The on-site supervisor is responsible for ensuring that operators are made aware of
the inherent dangers of operating a hot-oil fryer/filter system, particularly the
aspects of fryer operation, oil filtration, and draining/cleaning procedures.
2.2 Principles of Operation
The incoming gas flows through orifices and is mixed with air in the burners to create the correct
ratio for proper combustion. The mixture is ignited at the front end of each heat tube by the pilot
light. Internal diffusers slow the flame as it goes through the burner tube. This slower and more
turbulent flame gives much better heat transfer to the walls of the tubes, thereby heating the oil more
efficiently.
2.3 Rating Plate
This is attached to the inside right-hand corner of the front door panel. Information provided
includes the model and serial number of the fryer, BTU/hr (kW/hr) of the burners, outlet gas
pressure in inches W.C. (mbars) and whether the unit has natural or propane gas orifices.
DANGER
Fryers MUST be connected ONLY to the gas-type identified on the attached rating
plate.
CAUTION
Local building codes usually prohibit a fryer with its open tank of hot oil from being
installed beside an open flame of any type, whether a broiler or the open burner of a
range.
2-1
2.4 Pre-Installation
A. General: Only a licensed plumber should install any gas-fired equipment.
1.
A manual gas shut-off valve must be installed in the gas supply line ahead of the fryers for
safety and ease of future service.
2.
Dean Super Runner Series gas fryers operate on millivolt, and do not require an external
electric power supply.
B. Clearances: The fryer area must be kept free and clear of all combustibles. This unit is design-
certified for the following installations:
1.
Commercial installation only (not for household use).
2.
Non-combustible floor installation equipped with factory-supplied 6-inch (15-cm) adjustable
legs or 5-inch (13-cm) casters;
3.
Combustible construction with a minimum clearance of 6-inches (15-cm) side and 6-inches
(15-cm) rear, and equipped with factory-supplied 6-inch (15-cm) adjustable legs or 5-inch
(13-cm) casters.
C. Installation Standards
1.
CE/EXPORT STANDARDS: Fryer installation must conform with local codes, or in the
absence of local codes, to the appropriate national or European Community (CE) standards.
2.5 Equipment Installed at High Altitudes
A. The fryer input rating (BTU/hr) is for elevations up to 2,000 feet (610-m). For elevations
above 2,000 feet (610-m), the rating should be reduced four-percent for each additional 1,000
feet (305-m) above sea level.
B. The correct orifices are installed at the factory if the operating altitude is known at the time
of the customer’s order.
2.6 Air Supply and Ventilation
Keep the area around the fryer clear to prevent obstruction of combustion and ventilation airflow.
A. Do not connect this fryer to an exhaust duct.
B. Correct installation and adjustment will ensure adequate airflow to the fryer system.
2-2
2.6 Air Supply and Ventilation (cont.)
C. A commercial, heavy-duty fryer must vent its combustion wastes to the outside of the
building. A deep-fat fryer must be installed under a powered exhaust hood, or an exhaust fan
must be provided in the wall above the unit, as exhaust gas temperatures are approximately
800-1000°F (427-538°C) . Check air movement during installation. Strong exhaust fans in
the exhaust hood or in the overall air conditioning system can produce slight air drafts in the
room.
D. Do not place the fryer’s flue outlet directly into the plenum of the hood, as it will affect the
gas combustion of the fryer.
E. Never use the interior of the fryer cabinet for storage or store items on shelving over or
behind the fryer. Exhaust temperatures can exceed 800°F (427ºC) and may damage or melt
items stored in or near the fryer.
F. Adequate distance must be maintained from the flue outlet of the fryer(s) to the lower edge
of the filter bank. Per NFPA Standards No. 96, a minimum of 18-inches (45-cm) should be
maintained between the flue(s) and the lower edge of the exhaust hood filter.
G. Filters and drip troughs should be part of any industrial hood, but consult local codes before
constructing and installing any hood. The duct system, the exhaust hood and the filter bank
must be cleaned on a regular basis and kept free of grease.
2.7 Receiving and Unpacking Equipment
A. Check that the container is upright. Use an outward prying motion - no hammering - to
remove the carton. Unpack the fryer carefully and remove all accessories from the carton.
Do not discard or misplace accessories. They will be needed.
B. After unpacking, immediately check the equipment for visible signs of shipping damage. If
damage has occurred, contact the carrier and file the appropriate freight claims. Do not
contact the factory. Shipping damage responsibility is between the carrier and the dealer.
If your equipment arrives damaged:
1. File claim for damages immediately, regardless of extent of damage.
2. Visible loss or damage: Be sure this is noted on the freight bill or express receipt and is
signed by the person making the delivery.
3. Concealed loss or damage: If damage is unnoticed until equipment is unpacked, notify
freight company or carrier immediately, and file a concealed damage claim. The claim
should be filed within 15 days of date of delivery. Be sure to retain container for
inspection.
NOTE: Dean Does Not Assume Responsibility for Damage or Loss Incurred in Transit.
2-3
2.7 Receiving and Unpacking Equipment (cont.)
C. Move the fryer to the location of installation and install legs and/or casters as described in
Chapter 3.2.
D. Remove all plastic skin from sides, front, and doors of the unit. Failure to do this will melt
the plastic and make it very difficult to remove later.
2.8 Conversion of Units
Pressure:
1 mbar = 10.2 mm water column (mm WC) = 0.4 Inch WC

CHAPTER 3: INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
3.1 Installing the Fryer
A. Initial Installation: If installed with legs, do not push against the fryer’s side to adjust its
position. Use a pallet or lift jack to lift the fryer slightly and place it where it is to be installed.
B. Relocating the Fryer: If relocating a fryer installed with legs, remove all weight from each leg
before moving.
Note:
If a leg becomes damaged during movement, contact your service agent for immediate
repair/replacement.
CAUTION
Fryers may not function properly if curb mounted.
DANGER
This fryer may tip and cause personal injury if not secured correctly in a stationary
position. Drain all oil/shortening from fryer before moving. Hot oil will splash and
cause severe burns upon contact.
3.2 Leg and Caster Installation
A. General
1.
Install legs and rear rigid casters near where the fryer is to be used, as neither are secure for
long transit. Unit cannot be curb mounted and must be equipped with the legs and casters
provided.
2.
When positioning the fryer, gently lower the fryer into position to prevent undue strain to
the legs and internal mounting hardware. Use a pallet or lift jack to lift and position the
fryer if possible. Tilting the fryer may damage the legs.
3.
The rigid casters must be installed on the fryer rear channel assembly only.
4.
Proceed to Step 3.3, Leveling the Fryer, after legs and rear rigid casters are installed to
ensure the fryer is level before using.
3-1
3.2 Leg and Caster Installation (cont.)
B. Leg and Rigid Caster Installation
1. Remove unit from pallet.
2. Carefully raise unit with forklift, pallet jack, or other steady means.
3. Place one lock washer on each hex head screw.
4.
Insert hex head screws with lock washers [1/4-20 threads by ¾" (19 mm) long] through bolt
holes of leg mounting plates and mount to the front channel. Mount rigid casters to the rear
channel following the same procedure. A locknut has been attached to the topside of the
base mounting plates at the factory to capture the hex head screw as it is screwed in.
5.
Tighten the bolts to 50 inch-lbs. (5.65 N m) minimum torque.
CAUTION
For caster retrofit, the unit must be at room temperature and drained of shortening
before installing the casters.
3.3 Leveling the Fryer
A. Place a spirit level across the top of the fryer and level the unit front to back. If the fryer is off
level side to side, a platform or other surface adjustment is needed; there is no side-to-side level
adjustments on a fryer equipped with caster/leg combinations. (If a fryer is equipped with legs
only, side-to-side level adjustments can be made. If a fryer is equipped with casters only, no
level adjustments to the fryer can be made.). If the fryer is not level, the unit may not function
efficiently, the oil may not drain properly for filtering and in a multi-fryer battery, it may not
match adjacent units.
Legs (Only)
1.
Adjust leg height with an adjustable or 1-1/16-inch (27 mm) open-end wrench by turning
the hex bullet on the bottom of the leg.
2.
The hex bullet is for minor leg height adjustment only. Do not adjust more than 1-inch
(22 mm).
3.
When leveling the unit, the leg body should be held firmly to keep the leg from bending or
rotating while turning the hex bullet foot to the required height.
3-2
3.3 Leveling the Fryer (cont.)
Rigid Casters (Only)
1.
Install the rigid casters on the fryer rear channel only. Legs must be installed on the front
channel.
2. There are no level adjustments for the rigid casters.
B. If the floor is uneven or has a decided slope, place the fryer on a smooth platform.
C. If the fryer is moved, re-level the fryer following the instructions given in Steps 3.3.A-C.
D. A fryer must be restrained to prevent tipping when installed in order to avoid the splashing of hot
liquid. Restraints used can be straps or chains anchored to an immovable object (wall, floor
anchor), or may be the manner of installation (installing the fryer in an alcove, battering to other
appliances, etc.).
E. Installing Optional Swivel Casters:
1.
Install non-locking casters only at the rear of the unit.
2.
Locking casters must be installed at the front of the unit. Locking casters allow the fryer to
be "locked" in position for safe operations.
3.
Follow the same instructions for leg installations as given above in steps 3.2, B1-5.

3.3 Leveling the Fryer (cont.)
NOTE: The installation must be inspected after it is complete to ensure it meets the intent of
these instructions. The on-site supervisor and/or operator(s) should be informed that the
appliance is installed with restraints. If restraints are removed to move fryer (cleaning
beneath and behind, relocation, etc.), ensure that they are re-installed when fryer is returned
to its permanently installed position.
CAUTION
The fryer MUST be connected to the gas supply specified on the rating and serial
number plate located on the back of the fryer door.
WARNING
If gas odors are detected, the gas supply MUST be shut off at the main shut-off
valve. The local gas company or FASC should be contacted immediately to rectify

3.4 Gas Connections (cont.)
The gas supply (service) line must be the same size or greater than the fryer inlet line. Super Runner
52-Series gas fryers are equipped with a 3/4" (19 mm) male ISO 7.1 inlet. The gas supply line must
be sized to accommodate all gas-fired equipment connected to that gas supply. Consult local gas
companies or suppliers, or your local contractor for minimum supply line requirements.
Supply Line Specifications
The gas supply lines must be sized as indicated in the chart below, based on the total number of
fryers connected to the main gas supply.
Recommended Gas Supply Line Sizes
Gas Types
Number of Fryers

1" (25 mm)
1-1/4" (33 mm)
Propane Gas
1/2" (13 mm)
3/4" (19 mm)
1" (25 mm)
(*) When exceeding 18 feet (6 meters) for a configuration of more than four fryers, it is necessary
to provide a 1 1/4" (33 mm) rigid gas connection.
CAUTION
All connections MUST be sealed with a joint compound suitable for the gas being
used, and all connections MUST be tested with a soapy solution before lighting any
pilots.
Rigid Connections
Check any installer-supplied intake pipe(s) visually and clean metal particles or other foreign matter
from the threads before installing into a service line. If the intake pipes are not clear of all foreign
matter, the orifices will clog when gas pressure is applied. When using thread compound on gas
piping, use very small amounts and only on male threads. Use a pipe thread compound that is not
affected by the chemical action of LP gases. DO NOT apply thread compound to the first two pipe
threads—doing so will cause clogging of the burner orifices and control valve.
Manual shut-off valve
This gas service supplier-installed valve must be installed in the gas service line ahead of the fryers
in the gas stream and in a position where it can be reached quickly in the event of an emergency.
3-5
3.4 Gas Connections (cont.)
Regulating Gas Pressure
The fryer and shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply during any pressure testing of
the system.
External gas regulators are not normally required on this fryer. A safety control valve protects the
fryer against pressure fluctuations. If the incoming pressure is in excess of ½" PSI (3.45 kPa/35
mbar), a step-down regulator will be required.
CAUTION
The fryer MUST be isolated from the gas supply-line system by closing its
individual, manual shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply-line
system at pressures equal to or less than ½" PSI (3.45 kPa/35 mbar).
The fryer and its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system
during any pressure testing of the gas supply system, especially if the test pressures are in excess of
½" PSI (3.45 kPa/35 mbar).
A. Manifold Pressure: Your local service technician should check the manifold pressure with a
manometer.
1.
Check the rating plate for manifold gas pressures. Natural gas units normally require 4"
WC, and propane units normally require 11" WC gas pressure.
2.
Confirm that the arrow forged into the bottom of the regulator body, which indicates gas
flow direction, is pointed downstream towards the fryers. The air vent cap is also part
of the regulator and should not be removed.
3.
If a vent line from the gas pressure regulator is used, it should be installed in accordance
with local codes or in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code,
ANSI Z223.1-(Latest Edition).
WARNING
Use a diluted soap solution to find potentially dangerous gas leaks when making
new connections.
B. Regulators: Gas regulators can be adjusted in the field, but no adjustments should be made
unless the regulator is out of adjustment, or serious pressure fluctuations are observed.
C. Only qualified service personnel should make adjustments to the regulators.

E. Flexible Couplings, Connectors and Casters
1. If the fryer is to be installed with flexible couplings and/or quick-disconnect fittings, the
installer must use a heavy-duty AGA design-certified commercial flexible connector of
at least 3/4" NPT (with suitable strain-relief attachments), in compliance with the
Standard for Connectors for Movable Gas Appliances, ANSI Z21.69-(latest edition) and
Addenda Z21.69a-(latest edition). Quick disconnect devices must comply with the
Standard for Quick-Disconnect Devices for Use with Gas Fuel, ANSI Z21.41-(latest
edition).
2. For an appliance equipped with casters, the installation shall be made with a connector
that complies with the Standard for Connectors for Movable Gas Appliances, ANSI
Z21.69, or Connectors for Moveable Gas Appliances, CAN/CGA-6.16. A quickdisconnect device that complies with the Standard for Quick-Disconnect Devices for Use
with Gas Fuel, ANSI Z21.41, or Quick-Disconnect Devices for Use with Gas Fuel,
CANI-6.9 must be used. Under no circumstances are the connector and the quickdisconnect device, or its associated piping be used to limit fryer movement. A restraining
bracket is provided on the appliance structural back to prevent the unit from moving
from its installed position.
WARNING
Do not attach accessories to this fryer unless fryer is secured from tipping.
Personal injury may result.
3. To limit movement of the fryer, restraints independent of the flexible coupling or
connector must be used. Clips are located on the back panel of the fryer for the
attachment of restraints.
4. If disconnection of the restraint is necessary, the restraint must be reconnected after the
fryer has been returned to its originally installed position.

CHAPTER 4: DAILY OPERATION
4.1 Initial Startup
New units are wiped clean with solvents at
the factory to remove any visible signs of
dirt, oil, grease, etc., remaining from the
manufacturing process, then coated lightly
with oil. Wash thoroughly with hot, soapy
water to remove any film residue and dust or
debris before food preparation, then rinse out
and wipe dry. Wash also any accessories
shipped with the unit. Close the drain valve
completely and remove the crumb screen.
Make sure the screws holding the thermostat
and high-limit control sensing bulbs into the
vessel are tight.
Fry vessel drain valve.
WARNING
Do not use an open flame to check for the presence of gas inside the fryer
cabinet.
If the pilot fails to light, turn valve "OFF" wait 5 minutes before re-lighting to
allow any accumulated gas to dissipate.
4.2 Pilot Lighting Procedures
Initial Pilot Lighting: All Dean fryers are tested, adjusted and calibrated to sea level
conditions before leaving the factory. Adjustments to assure proper operation of pilot may
be necessary on installation to meet local conditions, low gas pressure, differences in altitude
and variations in gas characteristics. These adjustments correct possible problems caused by
rough handling or vibration during shipment, and are to be performed only by qualified
service personnel. These adjustments are the responsibility of the customer and/or the dealer
and are not covered by the Dean warranty.
The inlet pipe at the lower rear of the fryer brings incoming gas to the pilot safety control
valve, then to the pilot and main burners. The pilot is located high in the cabinet center, at
the base of the fryer vessel.

pilot.
4-3
4.3 Boil-Out Procedure
1.
Empty fry vessel and pour in cleaning solution concentrate. Add water to the lower
OIL LEVEL line scribed on the vessel back.
2.
Set the operating thermostat-dial/temperature controller to 219°F (104°C), just above
that of boiling water.
3.
The main burner will ignite.
4.
Allow the solution to come to simmer, then reset the temperature controller to 199°F
(93°C).
5.
The burners should shut-off, just as the boil-out solution reaches setpoint.
CAUTION
If the pilot and main burner go out, the fryer(s) MUST be left completely shut
down at least 5 minutes before lighting.
6.
The burners will heat the boil-out solution to a simmer. Simmer the solution for
approximately 45 minutes. Wearing protective gloves, scrub the sides of the fry
vessel and the tubes with the L-shaped Teflon brush, being careful not to disturb the
temperature sensing probes and the high-limit thermostat.
CAUTION
Do not leave fryer unattended. The boil-out solution may foam and overflow if
fryer is left unattended. If this happens, turn thermostat to "OFF" and gas
valve to PILOT. Resume boil out when foam dissipates.
7.
Do not allow the water level to decrease below oil-level line in fry vessel during
boil-out operation.
8.
After boil-out is complete, turn the thermostat dial to "OFF" and drain the solution
from the fry vessel. Place a metal pan or bucket under the drain port to collect the
water from the fry vessel.
9.
Close the drain, add fresh water (without boil-out solution) and wash all surfaces of
the fry vessel. Drain again.
10. Refill the fry vessel with fresh water and vinegar to neutralize any residual boil-out
solution. Wash all surfaces of the fry vessel. Drain completely and wipe down all
surfaces of the fry vessel to completely eliminate water from the vessel.
11. Refill fry vessel with oil or wipe vessel interior with oil to prevent oxidation from
forming.
4-4
4.4 Final Preparation
WARNING
NEVER set a complete block of solid shortening on top of heating tubes. To
do so will damage the heating tubes and fry vessel, and void the warranty.
1.
When using a liquid shortening (cooking oil), fill the fryer to the lower OIL LEVEL
line scribed into the back of the fryer vessel.
2.
When using a solid shortening, first melt it in a suitable container, or cut it into small
pieces and pack it below, between and over the top of the heat tubes, leaving no air
spaces around the tubes. Do not disturb or bend the sensing bulbs.
3.
Turn the burners on for about 10 seconds then off for 1 minute, etc., until the
shortening is melted. If you see smoke coming from the shortening while melting
this way, shorten the "ON" cycle and lengthen the "OFF" cycle. Smoke indicates
potential scorching of the shortening, which will shorten its useful life.
4.
Before starting operation, turn the operating thermostat to the probable working
temperature. Wait for the oil temperature to stabilize then check with a high-quality
immersion thermometer.
WARNING
Do not go near the area directly over the flue outlet while the fryer is
operating.
Always wear oil-proof, insulated gloves when working with the fryer filled with
hot oil.
Always drain hot oil into a metal container. Hot oil can melt plastic buckets
and crack glass containers.
4.5 Extending Shortening/Oil Life
Although 350°F (177°C) is the recommended temperature for most cooking operations, set
the fryer at the lowest possible temperature which produces a high quality end product. This
ensures maximum life of shortening.
When the fryer is not in use, set the thermostat to a lower temperature than that used during
cooking. Light loads, too, may be cooked at lower temperatures. A good operator should
experiment to determine the optimum temperature and load conditions for the various food
items to be cooked.
4-5
4.6 Opening: Beginning the Work Day
At the beginning of each work day, always check the fryer to ensure:
1.
The combination or main gas valve is "OFF".
2.
Fry vessel is filled with liquid oil to the bottom OIL LEVEL line scribed into the rear
wall of the fry vessel tank.
To light the fryer:
1.
Open the manual shut-off valve on the incoming service line.
2.
Light the pilot.
a.
Non-CE: See Section 4.2.1 for pilot lighting procedures.
b.
CE: See Section 4.2.2 for pilot lighting procedures.
After the pilot is lit:
e Non-CE: Turn the gas cock dial to "ON".
e CE: Release the white pilot button.
1.
Turn the thermostat to the desired cooking temperature. Watch to ensure the main
burner ignites from the pilot.
2.
Allow the oil/shortening-filled fry vessel to heat for approximately 30 minutes
before cooking. Oil temperature will stabilize at the desired setpoint, ensuring
quality cooking.
4.7 Filtering Basics
CAUTION
When filtering, never leave the filter unit unattended. Oil moving through the
lines can knock the flexible return hose out of the fryer, spraying hot oil and
causing severe burns.
For filtration instructions and troubleshooting, consult the operating manual or
instructions provided with the filtration equipment.
4-6
4.7 Filtering Basics (cont.)
Basic rules of filtering are:
e The shortening should be filtered at least daily or even more frequently if cooking is
heavy. Filtering ensures long shortening life, better tasting food and minimizes
flavors being transferred from batch to batch.
e When completing a filter cycle, always close the return valve(s) at the fryer(s) to
avoid siphoning oil out of the fryer into the filter system. Open the valve at the filter
to promote draining of the return lines into the filter pan.
e If using solid shortening, always ensure the return lines are clear before de-activating
the filter motor. Also, hang flexible hose lines up to drain to prevent solid shortening
from solidifying in the lines.
4.8 Closing: End of Day
When closing at night:
e Filter the oil in all fryers and drain the filter lines.
e Cover oil-filled open fry vessels.
e Turn the control knob on the gas valve to "OFF" (non-CE), or press "red" button to
turn gas valve off (CE).
4.9 Fryer Shut-Down
When closing down for periods longer than overnight:
e Drain the shortening and clean the vessel thoroughly.
e Discard or filter the shortening, then return filtered shortening to fry vessel. Install
fry vessel cover to prevent shortening contamination.
e Non-stainless Fry Vessels Only: If shortening is discarded, lightly coat the inside of
non-stainless (mild steel) fry vessels with fresh shortening after cleaning to prevent
rusting.
e Turn the control knob on the gas valve to "OFF" (non-CE), or press "red" button to
turn gas valve off (CE).
e Turn the manual valve on the incoming gas service line to "OFF".
e Disconnect the portable filter power cord (if used) from the wall socket.
