How to Read a Pitco Serial Number

Knowing the machine's serial number can make things smoother when shopping for replacement parts. Pitco fryers have a data plate that lists pertinent equipment information, including the serial number. So what exactly do all those letters and numbers mean? They're codes that indicate the specific machine model and production date. Knowing this not only helps when it comes to part identification, but it also lets you to know if certain components are outdated.

Below is a quick breakdown of where to find and how to read a Pitco serial number.

Where is the Pitco Data Tag Located?

The data tag lists both the model and serial numbers. On Pitco fryers, this tag is usually located on the inside of the fryer door. The serial number is typically printed in a field reading "SERIAL NO."
