A good commercial kitchen exhaust filtration system has several key components that are essential in order to make sure that it does its job well. Here are five of those critical components:
1– HoodThe hood sits right above the stove burners and fans pull the smoke into the duct work and into the filtration equipment. This is the entrance point into the commercial kitchen exhaust filtration system. Most hoods also use a grease filter.
Last month, we described–in detail–what an electrostatic precipitator was and what it is used for. This month, we will discuss some of the benefits of using an electrostatic precipitator when compared to other air pollution control methods.
1 – Reduced Operational WasteProbably one of the biggest advantages of using an electrostatic precipitator is that all filters are washable or reclaimable. There are no filters to be thrown away and added to landfills. Since you are making an effort to reduce air pollution, doesn’t it make sense to reduce landfill waste as well?
Matrix Systems developed the SP7 detergent for SMOG HOG and Trion systems. This detergent was formulated specifically to clean SMOG HOG electrostatic precipitator systems by attacking the grease, fat and carbon that accumulates on the ESP’s collector plates and reduces the amount of grease that accumulates in the cabinets of ESP systems.
Also known as ESP systems, an electrostatic precipitator system is a collection system for removing mist, smoke, grease, and even odor from a commercial kitchen. It does this by using an electric charge to generate static electricity to attract these contaminants from the airflow, and pulling them into charged collection plates or cells that trap them without significantly impeding the airflow of the kitchen’s exhaust. These plates can then be cleaned, replaced or even have an automatic “washing” function within the ESP to keep the plates clean and continuing to collect contaminants without having to get manually involved in cleaning and maintaining them often.
Most ESP systems are highly efficient. For example, the SMOG HOG electrostatic precipitator removes over 95% of all mist, smoke, fumes, and even microscopic contaminants in a “single-pass” configuration and over 97% in a “double-pass” configuration.
In case you are wondering why it is a good idea to install a commercial kitchen exhaust filtration system, here are four solid reasons to consider doing so.
There are a lot of air filter suppliers and companies serving every major metropolitan area, but how do you select an excellent air filter company from the masses? Here are three things to look for:
