InnSep AS has started R&D process for tailoring the The Lynx Separation system to solve the problems of cooking grease and residue building up in ventilation ducts and systems in the food service industry. The industry is facing stricter air quality regulations due to the type of contaminated air produced by cooking food. Without an air cleaning component, cooking grease, smoke and residue build up in the ducts, blower, roof and outside walls of the building. It also clogs conventional filters used to remove cooking odors and particles. This residue is highly flammable and frequently causes fires. Conventional filtration technology is struggling to keep up, requiring larger and more advanced installations, driving up costs for the restaurants and end users.
Preliminary testing has concluded with good results. Using the Lynx Separation system for kitchen exhaust, fatty particles and liquids are efficiently removed and collected in a separate chamber for quick and frequent removal. The compact Lynx system enables conventional filtration systems to work with cleaner air and less liquids before exhausting outside the building.

Oil Marketing & Trading International magazine profiled the Lynx Separation system for cleaning of Ships Exhaust in their news update. The article is more in-depth and covers the development stages of the technology and how the R&D is focused on achieving solutions to meet the challenges of the new emission standards. Currently, as many as 60 per cent of the world’s ports have voluntarily joined forces and agreed that they will refuse access to ships that fail to comply with the emission standards. By 2020, this restriction will apply to all ports. Given this outlook, many smaller and larger vessels are now on a desperate hunt to find new technology that will remove polluting particles from their exhaust emissions.
