High Performance Kitchen for our Client : PROFIT and COMPETITIVENESS
Professional Kitchen is a very challenging and demanding environment. The profitability and competitiveness of each food service operation is directly related to cost efficient, productive, safe and healthy kitchen environment.
How can we increase profitability, competitiveness and sustainability?
> Lower health care cost, improved productivity, manageable operation,
reduced medical leaves
> Safety of people, safety of food
> Greenhouse gases, odour, grease
Vital conditions for a good capture and containment
> CONTROL OF THE DRIVING SPEED at the front of the hood to lead thermal plume inside the containment volume
> CONTAINMENT CAPACITY of the hood to store the pollutants peaks while it is exhausted
> NET EXHAUST AIRFLOW at the enter of the containment volume
> NO DRAFTS inside the containment volume of the hood
Existing Kitchen Canopy “not working”
Replace ceiling once every 2 years
Duct cleaning every 8 weeks
Very uncomfortable working conditions for staff
Decrease of fat and particles deposit inside the exhaust plenum and the ductwork
> Decrease the duration and the cost of statutory cleaning operations
> Decrease ductwork fire hazard
> Decrease emissions of cold grease odours
> Improve the hygienic conditions
Why Eliminate Grease?
–No build up of grease inside canopy and ducts
–Reduces risk of fire
–Allows odour abatement to be fitted
–Clean air can pass through heat recovery system
–Waste heat can be used to heat other areas of the building
–Clean, odour free air can be discharged at low level.
–Eliminates the requirement to run kitchen extract ducts to high level
–No build-up of grease in the ducts means fire dampers can be fitted.
–Inclusion of fire dampers enables discharge into underground car parks etc.
