The PowerClean kitchen exhaust unit is a robust, large-scale or plant room type electrostatic precipitator with automatic cleaning used for controlling kitchen exhaust emissions in all types of cooking applications.
The PowerClean kitchen exhaust unit is a robust, long-term solution to kitchen exhaust filtration. The commercial scale electrostatic precipitator (ESP) with automatic cleaning and multi-staged filtration, is suitable for all types of cooking applications.
The PowerClean incorporates four stages of kitchen exhaust filtration and an automatic wash system to economically control light to heavy smoke, grease and cooking odours. The first three stages target the removal of particulate contaminants and include the washing system and an extended surface bag filter. The fourth stage uses activated carbon media to remove odours.
With configurations at 1.85m/s or 2.54m/s, the PowerClean delivers a minimum 0.3 micron particulate removal efficiency of 99%+ (EN 1822.5:2009), and an initial contact efficiency of 99%+ with odours.
Typically, there are two types of ESPs available; a manual wash or an automatic wash system. Manual wash ESPs are typically a lower capital cost investment, with a higher ongoing maintenance cost. This is due to the labour intensive frequent manual washing and replacement of ESP cells.
Automatic wash ESPs are typically a higher capital cost investment, with an extremely low comparative maintenance cost, due to the inbuilt automatic cleaning of the ESP cells, and long-term system durability. Particularly for larger kitchens, or kitchens with a high amount of contaminants expected from the cooking process, an automatic wash ESP offers a far more attractive total life cycle cost and level of continued performance.
