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.
