the given picture represents various steps in the manufacturing of the potato chips.
at the beginning, the qualities of the potatoes are being checked by the labourers. further, the eatable potatoes are washed in a tank with the cold water so that the dust particles can be removed from them. after washing, potatoes are peeled with the help of the peeler and the starch is removed from them after which they are sent to the slicer machine through the bucket conveyor.
in the next stage, the potatoes are sliced into tiny forms and then are completely dried with the help of air on a flat bed conveyor for sometime. after that, the sliced potatoes are deep fried in the oil. the another step includes the salting of the fried potatoes with the help of a salter which results in the formation of the potato chips. this stage held on a flat belt conveyor. then the chips are transferred to the bag packer from which the bulk filler can fill the bags with the chips.
in conclusion, the process of making the potato chips begins with the inspection of the potatoes and terminates with the filling of the bags with chips.

Please check and give bands.
The given diagram illustrates the process of production of potato chips from potatoes.
It can be clearly observed from illustration that production of potato chips is consisting of five main stages, starting from the quality of potatoes to sealing them in chips bag.
To begin with, the quality of potatoes is checked by inspector before sending them into the washer. The potatoes are washed in the washer by cold rinse water. After that, potatoes are peeled and starch is removed before sending them into the slicer through bucket conveyor. The slicer slices the potatoes nicely and it is redirected to deep fryer by using flat-bed conveyor. The air is introduced into the flat-bed conveyor to remove any moisture present.
In the subsequent stage, the chips are consigned to either bag packer or can filler by flat-bed conveyor (where they are salted by a salter). At last, the chips are sealed into bags by bag packer and cans by can filler. At this stage, they are ready to dispatch.
