Activated carbon filtration units are a great addition to commercial kitchen ventilation as they are specifically made for the control of cooking odour. It utilises carbon pellets to remove odour molecules prior to discharging the kitchen exhaust air.
Used for decades for the removal of harmful odours and chemicals, carbon filters work through the process of absorption, as the structure of carbon is a natural absorber. Effectiveness and longevity of carbon filters are based on weight and contact time, so more weight in the carbon unit means more capacity to remove odour in the kitchen exhaust system and longer service life.
The carbon filtration units are modular in design and can be attached to the electrostatic air cleaner and fan in the kitchen exhaust system. Contaminants are sucked through the kitchen exhaust hood, into the ventilation, through the electrostatic air filter, through the carbon bank and out of the kitchen exhaust fan. This process purifies the outputted air from commercial kitchens leaving minimal air pollution to its surroundings.
