Applied directly over ovens and furnaces is one of the most common uses of industrial fans in the commercial kitchen and hospitality sector. Within this application, the presence of gas or hazardous elements will dictate whether fans should comply with ATEX regulations to avoid explosive atmospheres. Suitable industrial fans include the ANDB range of cased axial fans or, alternatively, centrifugal fans, if high pressure is required due to system design.
Commercial kitchens demand that extraction fans and exhaust fans are made with high-quality manufactured components to withstand the rigours of constant use with hot, greasy air.
Moduflow kitchen exhaust units are developed to move air volumes for applications where the air is slightly soiled, greasy or is of a higher temperature. The casing consists of heavy gauge galvanised sheet steel, with the design incorporating the motor outside of the airstream, protecting the motor bearings from system heat and grease.
The SILC series (SILC – 3 phase, SILC – single phase) is a range of high-quality commercial extraction fans. The SILC series of fans are driven by motors located out of the airstream, allowing the impeller to operate at up to and in excess of 100°C.
