Galley Ventilation Systems – Range hoods, CKA-Marine UV-C/ozone or plasma systems - custom made to meet the requirements of shipyards and shipping companies - tailored to the respective exhaust air volume of kitchen appliances
Ventilation of the kitchen in the living area is a necessary thing. Without clarifying the air, the smell gets from the galley into other living rooms - the bedroom, the nursery, the living room. Besides, fat deposits can settle on all possible surfaces - walls, furniture, appliances, food. It spoils the appearance and reduces the service of things. A properly installed galley ventilation solves the problem.
The Importance of Kitchen Ventilation
Before making a high-quality cleaning system, it is important to understand how it works. The basic law of air exchange is circulation. For the exhaust atmosphere to be drawn out into the street, fresh air would replace it.
Unfortunately, in high-rise buildings, plastic windows completely block clean air to the apartment. The owners believe that more frequent galley ventilation is the solution to the problem. But it is a mistake. A healthy microclimate can only be ensured by constant and controlled air exchange. The vents open in winter lead to sharp jumps in temperature in the apartment, drafts. The rest of the time, residents suffer from:
lack of oxygen;
increased levels of carbon dioxide;
the spread of cooking smells throughout the apartment.
Varieties of Galley Ventilation Systems
Galley exhaust fan in the kitchen is one of the most popular systems for purifying air after cooking. As a rule, it has a dome shape and is directly connected to the galley ventilation system with an installed induction. Modern hoods are divided into:
Built-in galley range hoods are almost invisible, as they are hidden in the cabinet above the stove. Only the work surface remains open. Flat and domed galley induction are usually held on special brackets in the wall. Insular is mounted to the ceiling where the stove is located not against the wall, but in the center.
Important Technical Options
When choosing an induced air fan for the kitchen, it is important to be guided not only by a beautiful design but also to pay attention to the technical characteristics. They include control methods, the presence of lighting, noise insulation, and the presence of grounding.
A modern solution for air purification is UV kitchen exhaust hoods. They not only remove unpleasant odors but also disinfect the air. It is especially true in today's epidemic situation when you have to spend more time at home than usual.
Types of Control
A modern range hood can have different types of control:
The slider is the simplest and most inexpensive. It is carried out using a skid switch moving along a marked line. The operating speeds of the induction ventilation system are arranged in order - the second turns on after the first, the third after the second.
Button control is carried out directly by buttons. With their help, you can immediately turn on the desired speed. This option is simple and reliable.
The touchpad in induction ventilation is more expensive. It looks beautiful and impressive. Operation is carried out by touching the sensors designated as flat buttons and equipped with LED indicators.
Electronic control is the most expensive, but it allows you to program the vessel operation. The galley induction ventilation turns off on its own at the specified time or when the air becomes purified. Complex programmable models, equipped with steam and burning sensors, are triggered by their appearance.
In addition to the set of usual functions, the manufacturers offer the additional options "run-on" and "interval switching" in them. The "residual stroke" allows the exhaust fans commercial kitchen hoods to operate at low speed for 5, 10, or 15 minutes. After that, it turns off. It allows the air to be completely purified. The "interval switching" mode provides for switching on once an hour, ensuring a constant ventilation system.
All models are equipped with lighting. Usually, lamps are installed at the bottom of the devices. When choosing a hood, you should know that lighting is provided by different ranges of lamps:
Fluorescent lamps are the cheapest and most economical. They create a uniform dim light. Such lighting distorts the natural color of the food being cooked somewhat, and it takes some getting used to.
Incandescent lamps are essentially ordinary lamps with an emitter in the form of a refractory metal filament. Their light with a slight reddish tint can also be misleading. Dishes with a golden crust may appear slightly less appetizing on the table than on the stove under the galley range.
Halogen lamps are the same incandescent lamps. But due to the presence of a gas mixture in them, their color spectrum is closest to natural. This type of lighting is the most expensive, but also very economical.
One of the characteristics of the kitchen exhaust hoods and fans is the noise level generated during its operation. The optimal value is within 50 dB. Appliances with a higher noise level will attract attention.
However, the power of the galley induction ventilation system and its noise characteristics are directly related to each other: the higher the number of revolutions of the motor, the higher the efficiency of the device, and the louder it works. To solve this problem, designers of household appliances have developed twin-engine models. Now, this is the best option for an apartment. Usually, it is used in exhaust hoods for commercial kitchens.
Although kitchen hoods are safe, when connecting them to the mains, you must take care of additional grounding of the device. In case of unexpected power surges in the network, this measure will prevent burnout of the motor and the electronic control unit. Besides, you can be sure that the device will not turn on spontaneously as a result of a voltage drop.
Knowing information when choosing equipment, you can easily find the model that suits you best. Do not forget the kitchen hoods exhaust of well-known world brands is more efficient. The money invested in the device is not only paying for the design, modern materials, and mechanisms.
