We define commissioning as “The process of ensuring that systems are designed, installed, functionally tested and capable of being operated and maintained according to the owner’s operational needs.
RESTAURANT & KITCHEN HOOD TESTING
If a hood is operating above or below the required airflow, the grease filters do not correctly extract the grease from the airflow. This will cause grease to be drawn up the ductwork and into the fan, allowing for the possibility of a grease fire to occur inside the ductwork or on the roof. A grease laden fan can also cause an imbalance in the fan blades which can create excess noise and possible damage. Additional expenses may be incurred to have the system correctly and more frequently cleaned.
Heat created by the cooking surface rises up to the filters and is then extracted from the kitchen. If the airflow is not correctly set, excessive temperatures can be created in the kitchen area and occupants who are working can become very uncomfortable and irritable.
Balancing kitchen hood airflows will make for a safer and more comfortable environment.
Outside of safety and comfort, having kitchen hoods tested and balanced for airflow can save energy thru less cleaning and reduced cooling usage from air condition systems.
