Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation

Kitchen Ventilation System

Traditionally ventilation systems have operated at one speed regardless of how hard the appliances are working. Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation systems respond to variations in stove use, allowing the two-speed or variable fans to regulate exhaust depending on how many burners are working. That means significant savings as well as other important benefits that include:

  • Reduced noise pollution
  • Improved indoor air quality by reducing CO2 levels
  • Increased productivity

ENERGY STAR® Steam Cooker

Steam cookers are used in commercial and institutional food service preparation to cook foods that do not need to form a crust. The steamer resembles an oven where food is steamed in a sealed cavity.  There are several steam cooker configurations which include: counter-top models, wall-mounted models, and floor models mounted on pedestal or cabinet-style base. Commercial steamers come in different sizes, but steamers holding six or more pans are the most common, based on the ENERGY STAR® approved products list. ENERGY STAR® rated steam cookers offer shorter cook times, higher production rates, and reduced heat loss due to better insulation and more efficient steam delivery system.

High Efficiency Under-Fired Broiler

Under-fired broilers often referred to as "charbroilers" are used in commercial and institutional food service to do a range of tasks that range from melting cheese to cooking large cuts of meat. Under-fired broilers come in different sizes ranging from three-foot to six-foot. High efficiency broilers utilize improved radiant design and burner control to allow lower firing and gas input levels during both preheat and cooking modes. The basic design of an under-fired broiler is a suspended metal grill with heat applied from below.
