This is a New Comstock-Castle Tube Type Fryer Floor Model 18HF!
Comstock-Castle floor fryers are a high production, energy efficient tube design. Fryers with tube tanks generally are more efficient due to more surfaces for the heat to transfer to the oil. The more efficient heat exchange requires less BTUs to fry the same amount of food, lowering the operators utility costs. In many cases fryers with far higher BTU ratings are just wasting energy up the flue. There is a cold zone below the tubes where food particles will settle and not burn. This allows the oil to last longer, a further reduction in operating costs.

Easy cleaning, corrosion resistant stainless steel tube type tank
for maximum surface heat transfer. Stainless steel tube radiant inserts for
increased efficiency and rapid recovery. Deep cold zone allows food
particles to sink below tubes reducing shortening breakdown and taste
transfer as well as extending the life and quality of fryer shortening. 1"
gate valve for rapid draining.
Two heavy duty, nickel plated wire baskets. Permanently
affixed hanger rack firmly suspends loaded baskets out of frying vat.
