"...A Range of Products From One Function to Fully Programmable, Self Maintaining..."

In today’s busy world, more people are going out to eat. For restaurants this growing trend not only increases traffic and revenues but the kitchen hazards associated with this new volume. As kitchen cooking production grows, restaurants will exhaust more smoke, grease, and odors into the air. Local neighbors may raise concerns about air quality, and restaurants may put their roofs at risk with grease pooling that attacks roof materials. To help restaurants keep pace, Air Quality Engineering offers its Kitchen Exhaust Air Cleaning Systems. These systems use a proven dual-stage electronic air cleaning technique—electrostatic precipitation—to remove smoke, grease, mist, and other particulates from the air.

F61 Self Cleaning Kitchen Emissions Exhaust Air Cleaner
F61 AutoClean is an in-line electrostatic air cleaner with an integral, dynamic wash system and programmable control providing the ultimate solution to your air filtration needs. Thesecommercial kitchen exhaust. air cleaners are ideal for heavy tobacco smoke applications, commercial kitchen exhaust or even industrial applications like welding fume and smoke. The F61 AutoClean is available in multiple sizes and is customizable to meet your air filtration needs. Premier wash system both rotates and traverses the electronic collector cells to insure complete cleaning of the collector fins. Optional master clock allows for weekly programming for the ultimate in maintenance free operation.

Basic electrostatic precipitators remove grease, odors, and smoke from the air. In order to maintain efficient air cleaning, the precipitator’s electronic cells must be kept clean. Usually the cleaning is done manually. The AutoClean eliminates the need for manual cleaning by utilizing the most effective method of self-washing on the market. The AutoClean’s wash bar rotates back and forth while shuttling the bar laterally within the cabinet. This dualmotion provides complete cleaning coverage of dual-stage electronic cells; and when used with our environmentally friendly, concentrated cell cleaner, provides superior air cleaning efficiency and cost control.

  • Self-wash cycle to eliminate filter replacement and electrostatic precipitator cell cleaning

  • Energy efficient units minimize electrical costs

  • Superior quality and construction virtually eliminates maintenance costs

  • Stackable customized modules provide design and installation flexibility for any size installations

  • Clean HVAC coils increase thermal efficiency for energy savings

  • Up to 99% efficient to ensure clean air

  • Optional carbon filters control odors

F72 Kitchen Emissions Exhaust Air Cleaner
The F72 in-line electronic air cleaner removes airborne particles such as tobacco smoke, dust, cooking smoke, soot, pollen, bacteria, and cigarette smoke from the circulating air in large residential or light commercial buildings. The F72 is mounted in the return air duct of a forced air system. One or two electronic cells remove airborne contaminants with up to 99 percent efficiency. Rooftop or interior mounted, the F72 is modular and can be configured for an infinite capacity. Outdoor, insulated enclosures available.

  • Economical, non-wash system requires no plumbing

  • Galvanized finish withstands the demands of restaurant environments

  • Side access door for easy maintenance

  • Stackable customized modules provide design and installation flexibility for any size installations

  • Up to 99% efficient to ensure clean air

  • Optional carbon filters control odors

How They Work...

Below illustrates airflow for two configurations or methods of installing restaurant or commercial kitchen emissions cleaning systems. 

 Inside Building

 Outside Building

Indoor Configuration
The air cleaning unit goes between ducting from the kitchen hood to the exhaust fan. A unit can be install in a crawl space or bolted between ceiling rafters.

  1. Kitchen smoke and grease vapor are pulled up into the hood.
  2. Smoke and grease vapors are pulled up fireproof ducts that lead to the filtration unit inside the building.
  3. Smoke and grease are extracted from the air as it passes through the filters.
  4. Clean air flows out of the filtration unit through ducts leading to the blower and out of the building.
f

Outdoor Configuration
Weather protective enclosures allow the air cleaning unit to sit outside the building. It installs inline with ducts leading to the blower.

  1. Kitchen smoke and grease vapor are pulled up into the hood.
  2. Smoke and grease vapors are pulled up fireproof ducts that lead to the filtration unit outside the building.
  3. Smoke and grease are extracted from the air as it passes through the filters.
  4. Clean air flows out of the filtration unit and out through the exhaust fan.

How Electrostatic Precipitation Works

Dual-stage electrostatic precipitators include two parts: the charging and the collecting sections. In the charging section, the incoming smoke, grease, mist, and other particulates pass by ionizer wires which impart a positive electrical charge to these contaminants. The positively charged contaminants are then drawn through the collection section which contains a secondary electrical field with negatively charged aluminum plates. Since opposite charges attract, the positively charged contaminants collect on the negatively charged aluminum plates, removing them from the air stream.
