Healthier Air - Energy Saving
Ravenscroft specialises in providing innovative and energy efficient engineering solutions for the heating and ventilating sector. Our customised engineering solutions yield high quality indoor air while reducing HVAC operating costs.
Heavy-duty cooking appliances, such as charcoal ovens and charbroilers have always been difficult to contend with. They are characterised by high heat loads leading to high temperatures inside the exhaust ductwork.
They also generate a large quantity of FOG (Fat, Oils and Grease) in addition to carbon-based particles, especially in the case of open flame and solid fuel cooking. Charcoal ovens have the added problem of smoke every time the oven door is opened
The Cold Mist technology increases the safety level to the same standard as conventional cooking appliances.
The professional kitchen is a very challenging and demanding environment. The profitability and competitiveness of each foodservice operation are directly related to cost-efficiency, productivity and health level in a kitchen environment.
Ravenscroft supplies Halton Capture Jet canopies, which prevent spreading of the heat and impurities produced by cooking into the work area. The hoods deliver a small air jet that pushes the rising thermal current to the Halton KSA grease filters. Capture Jet hoods are 30% more efficient, due to their lower air flow rates, which adds up to direct savings on running and initial costs.
Many kitchens require emission control in their exhaust systems to comply with the increasing demand for environment-friendly operations. The Capture Ray UV hoods are based on Halton's patented Capture Jet solution, advanced mechanical KSA filter technology, and a UV-C system for the destruction of grease generated in the cooking process - all of which mean clean ducts and improved fire safety.
Halton kitchen hoods have numerous advantages compared to the standard kitchen ventilation units.
They require lower airflow volumes, only 50-66% compared to ordinary kitchen hoods. As a result Halton kitchen hoods require smaller fans and ducting, which provides savings in the building costs. Also, the running costs of Halton hoods are lower due to lower fan power requirements and air conditioning needs.
Halton kitchen hoods are very quiet when compared to standard hoods and especially well suited for teaching and show kitchens. With their lower air volumes Halton hoods also provide and pleasant environment for the kitchen staff to work in.
Halton's Capture Jet technology removes cooking vapours much more effectively than standard kitchen hoods. This means a better air quality and a more comfortable environment for the chefs, as well confidence that the maximum amount of carcinogenic cooking fumes have been removed the kitchen.
Halton hoods capture grease very effectively, but also very easy to clean. The UV kitchen hoods make kitchen exhaust virtually odourless and make discharging to a low level possible.
Halton kitchen hoods are easy to install and commission and are an alternative solution to AS1668.2.
