Grease Filters for Commercial Kitchens Canopy

Grease Filters are installed in commercial kitchen canopies above cooking ranges.  These filters are designed to remove grease from the air stream before it enters the kitchen extract ducting system helpling to minimise fire risk, and make cleaning the extract system more manageable.

Airclean manufacture high quality Stainless Steel Baffle Grease Filters for use in commercial kitchen canopies.  Baffle Grease Filters are suitable for use new kitchen extract systems canopies and existing systems as replacements.

The Baffle Canopy Grease Filter uses interlocking blades which are designed to remove grease and oil from the air stream using the centrifugal forces generated by two 180 degree turns that air takes through the filter.  Interlocking blades in this style of kitchen canopy grease filter also act as a flame barrier by restricting the direct path to flames to the duct system behind the filter.

Airclean manufacture Mesh Type Grease filters which can be used as a secondary method of removing grease from a kitchen or industrial environment.  Mesh grease filters are highly effective at removing grease from the air stream in a kitchen extract system and can be repeatedly cleaned to maintain good airflow through the filter.

Historically Mesh Grease Filters have been used as primary grease filters in the commercial kitchen canopy, however current standards and guidance suggest that Baffle Grease Filters should be used as they offer a barrier to flames.
