A Brand New Energy Source!

– Purify the kitchen exhaust air and recycle tens of thousands of euros every year!
Fatty and dirty exhaust air is associated with costs. If purified, it would be a valuable resource.

A restaurant with about 5000 m3/h exhaust air loses between 7 000 – 14 000 euros per year in heat energy depending on the operating conditions. The payback period for an air purification system and a heat recovery unit can be as short as a few years.

Kitchen ventilation is needed in order to create a good working environment in the kitchen, to dissipate heat as well as cooking odors and moisture and to supply the area with fresh air. However, only in Sweden an estimated 280 million euros disappear in the form of heat energy through the ventilation from our properties.

There are ongoing projects designed to make commercial kitchens more energy efficient. Energy savings can be achieved by selecting the right equipment, utilizing demand controlled ventilation, correct service interval of the equipment and training of staff. The (heat) energy in the exhaust air from a kitchen constitutes by far the largest part of the possible energy savings – probably as much as 40% of the total energy consumption in a kitchen.

An average sized kitchen can save tens of thousands of euros annually by taking measures that allows heat recovery from the exhaust air with a heat exchanger!

The Solution

Start cleaning the exhaust air and then connect a heat exchanger. Even at moderate 40% efficiency of a heat exchanger has a significant saving potential. Large portions of this site is devoted to the solution of fat-related problems.
