This photo illustrates the correct installation of a metal baffle plate between the open flames from the range and the deep fat fryer. Metal baffles should be used only when there is not sufficient space available to provide a 16” clearance between the deep fat fryer and any source of open flames. Baffle filters are seen above the range and fryer.
