Commercial Kitchen Odour Control Systems

Effective odour, grease and smoke control systems.

Commercial Kitchen Odour Control Systems

Kitchen Odour Control

When a restaurant or commercial kitchen opens it is subject to the environmental criterion that no smoke or odour should be noticed at the exhaust. Environmental Health Officers are able to serve notice on premises causing odour nuisance and ultimately have the power to apply for closure of the premises in the event that the operator does not improve odour emissions.

Odour Control Methods

One way of solving these problems is by using carbon filters. However, these are not very practical for use with grease and smoke as their relatively large particles plug the micro porous structure making them ineffective.

The following methods can solve the problem of commercial kitchen smoke and odour nuisance:

  • Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) Systems
  • Electronic Odour Control Units
  • Ultra-violet (UV-C) Systems
  • Passive Filters
  • Mixed Media Filters

Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) Systems

One of the best methods of removing grease and smoke is by electrostatic filters. A highly efficient electrostatic precipitator range cleans the kitchen extract emissions of both the smoke and grease and can remove particulate down to sub-micron (0.01 micro) size.

Commercial Kitchen Ventilation System Odour Control ESP Units

Odour Control Units

To deal with the odour, an odour control unit can be installed which has been designed to neutralise odour-laden air from the exhaust ducts of both restaurants and industrial plants. Combining easy installation with low maintenance costs the unit uses a combination of a chemical and ionisation to remove cooking smells.

Carbon Cell Filter System Units

One way of solving these problems is by using carbon filters. However, these are not very practical for use with grease and smoke as their relatively large particles plug the micro porous structure making them ineffective.

  • Elimination of cooking odours
  • General odour removal
  • Removal of air pollutants and contaminants

The units are constructed by mounting a series on carbon panel filters with a sealed case with the filtering surfaces arranged in a “V” formation. Each carbon panel is sealed into the filter case to ensure no air can bypass the carbon granules. The panels are manufactured using bonding techniques which hold the activated carbon granules together and covered in a carbon impregnated cloth to prevent the leakage of granules or powder, remaining intact and rigid even if wet.
