A thermocouple is a transducer consisting of two different metals welded together at each end; a voltage is produced that is proportional to the difference in temperature between the two junctions (one of which is normally held at a known temperature). Commercial thermocouples are inexpensive, interchangeable, are supplied with standard connectors, and can measure a wide range of temperatures. In contrast to most other methods of temperature measurement, thermocouples are self powered and require no external form of excitation.
In 1937, Anetsberger Brothers entered the foodservice equipment industry with the introduction of its first thermostatically controlled counter fryer. Since then, ANETS has developed numerous other product firsts, including automatic lifts on gas fryers, automated production tables, pyrolytic self-cleaning char-broilers, dough rollers with built-in dough dockers, and many more.
