Reduction of grease in air-exhaust systems

It’s a fact that the majority of fires in restaurants and take-away food outlets start in the extraction hood or the duct work. As hot air is sucked away from the cooking area, it carries with it particles of oil and grease that, unless there is sufficient protection in place, will condense and build up inside the duct work, creating a layer of highly flammable material.

Air & Odour Management

Eco Guardians’ Veritech range of high-efficiency primary grease filters achieves grease removal from the air as great as 95% with consequent reductions in duct cleaning frequency as well as the opportunity to reduce fire insurance premiums.

Control of airborne odours and pathogens

In enclosed spaces, airborne micro-organisms create offensive odours, spread infections and compromise hygiene standards. Traditional cleaning methods and masking agents are not enough. After cleaning, once a facility is re-used harmful micro-organisms return and grow at a rapid rate. Odours prevail and the health risks increase.

Odours and infections are created by bacteria, viruses, mould, fungi and volatile organic compounds found in the air and on surfaces. Regular cleaning, disinfecting alone and use of masking agents cannot control the spread of micro-organisms. In eight hours, a single bacteria cell can multiply to over 8 million, meaning odours prevail and health risks increase. Utilizing ultraviolet lamp technologykill up to 99.9% of airborne bacteria and viruses, black mold and fungal growth. Reduce odours and respiratory allergens and reduce airborne transmission of influenza, colds, and viruses.
