COLD MIST, THE SOLUTION FOR CONTROL OF EMISSIONS FROM HEAVY DUTY COOKING APPLIANCES
Heavy duty cooking appliances, such as charcoal and charbroilers have always been difficult to deal with.
They are indeed characterised by high heat loads, leading to high temperatures inside the exhaust ductwork. They also generate a large quantity of FOG (Fat, Oil and Grease) in addition to carbonated particles, especially in the case of open flame and solid fuel cooking.
The risk of fire is maximised, constituting a major concern. Grease deposits combined with high temperatures and even sparks: this is potentially explosive.
Cold Mist technology is the best solution for efficiently driving the safety and emissions down to the level of standard cooking appliances.
The Cold Mist provides highly efficient filtration:
It creates a Cold Water Mist Curtain inside the exhaust plenum of the canopy. The smoke generated by the cooking appliances is forced to pass through it. Airborne particles and part of the odours are then captured and conveyed to the drain. This is well known, and proven to be a very efficient method of removing FOG from the air stream.
The Cold Mist acts as a spark arrester and air cooler:
If sparks enter the canopy the Cold Mist takes the heat away through adiabatic and evaporative cooling and therefore greatly reduces the risk of fire propagating in the ductwork. The temperature is at the same time reduced to an acceptable level. The fire risks are reduced to a minimum and “burning on” of the cooking grease is suppressed.
