Kitchen Odour Control

Efficient grease filters for maintaining good air quality

Kitchen Odour Control

In a commercial kitchen extraction system, grease filters play a vital role in purifying the air by capturing particles of grease, fat and oil as well as making kitchen odour control manageable. The steam and fumes emitted during cooking can be saturated with such particles and to maintain the good air quality in a busy kitchen environment, effective grease filters in the kitchen canopy must be used. The skilled team at Saxty Engineering Ltd have a wealth of experience in creating thorough and efficient extraction systems.

There are two main types of ventilation filter available which can be customised for your kitchen.

Grease Filters

Stainless Steel Baffle Filter

Baffle grease filters extract grease from the air in an innovative and efficient way. As air is sucked through the filter – which comprises of rows of metal blades – it is forced to change direction rapidly, several times. The grease, oil and fat particles can’t move as swiftly as the air and so collect on the blades and run off into grease trays which can be easily emptied and cleaned. This design also prevents any grease build up on the filter, thus offering flame protection properties. Further advantages of this type of filter include:

  • Grease trap helps stifle flame spread in the event of a fire
  • Easy to clean and dishwasher safe
  • Handles for easy removal when cleaning

Mesh Filters

Mesh grease filters are a traditional and economical form of kitchen canopy filter. These filters work best in kitchens with relatively low grease output. Mesh filters consist of several layers of a fine mesh which will capture and separate particles of grease and the like from the air as it flows through the filter. These mesh grids then need to be cleaned at least weekly to remove the deposited grease. It is worth noting that mesh filters do not have any fire preventing properties that baffle filters do. They are, however, a cheaper filter alternative.
