A common problem in the food service industry is unwanted odors in exhaust air from kitchens. These occur during the regular processes of deep-frying, boiling, and baking. They can also occur when using charcoal grills or ovens.
UV-C ozone Air systems are an effective and cost-efficient solution – as is the CAP CleanAir Plasma system supplemented by an air scrubber, which has been specially designed for lava or charcoal grills.
When baking and deep-frying, exhaust that is heavily contaminated with grease flows into the exhaust ventilation system. This is how organic deposits are created; the ventilation ducts become clogged with grease, which increases the risk of fire. Grease deposits inside exhaust ducts must be regularly cleaned, incurring high costs. Moreover, problems tend to be solved only partially and over the short term. There are many places in ducts that are inaccessible on account of missing inspection openings. Aggressive, highly effective chemicals are a big problem, especially for older duct systems.
Practical Solution, UV-C Ozone: CKA (Clean Kitchen Air)
The CKA (Clean Kitchen Air) system is an effective and cost-efficient solution. Exhaust that is heavily polluted with grease is purified by passing through a grease filter that utilizes vortex flow. Organic substances and those containing grease and odors are oxidized. Grease deposits in the exhaust system are markedly reduced, and the risk of fire minimized.
Practical Solution, Plasma: CAP (CleanAir Plasma 1,500 – 10,000 m3/h)
In contrast to the previously mentioned CKA system, CleanAir Plasma (CAP) offers the option of breaking down substances using ozone – generated by high voltage. The CAP system, unlike the CKA system, completely replaces the ventilation system, because the CAP system functions as a complete ventilation system and can be connected directly to the ventilation hood.
Practical Solution, Scrubber Systems: CGA (Clean Grill Air)
CGA is a purification system that is primarily suitable for separating out particles, soot, and smoke from charcoal and lava grills. The CGA system is also useful for reducing particle deposits in other exhaust purification systems. The system works on the basis of circulating water, which separates out smoke, grease, and soot particles.
A Practical Solution for Marine Use/Galleys: CKA (Clean Kitchen Air – Marine Application)
The CKA System for Marine Application was specially created for use in heavily burdened galley kitchens. The system can be supplied with or without a cleaning system for the lamps. A wide variety of ventilation hoods can also be custom manufactured for the client, and these can be supplied along with the CKA-MA. In addition to traditional ventilation hoods, it is possible to supply energy-efficient injection hoods – with a guaranteed savings on waste and supply air of at least 25%.
A Practical Solution for Home Kitchens: CAP 600/1200 m3/h (CleanAir Plasma)
The CleanAir Plasma system (CAP) offers home kitchens the option of breaking down organic substances via ozone – which is generated by using high voltage. The CAP 600/1200 is supplied either as a plasma unit and activated carbon filter; as a plasma unit with activated carbon filter and fan; or as a duct unit (stainless or galvanized steel) with a pre-filter, electrostatic filter, fan, and plasma unit including an activated carbon filter. The duct unit is a complete replacement for a ventilation system.
