Energy Efficiency

The increasing need for production and consumption in our country gives momentum to the competitive environment and it is of vital importance that the costs can be reduced. In the industrial kitchen, hot air, which is the result of the cooking process, is thrown out of the hoods together with the air that is heated by the restaurant and the fresh air taken in the place is also required to be heated. Since this heating is done with extra money and energy, it is necessary to utilize the energy of this heated air being thrown out. In addition, the environmental effects are minimized by hot air heat recovery.

This hot air from the hoods is first electrostatically filtered and separated from oil and smoke particles. The heat is then evaluated in the heat exchanger section of the recycling device. Heat transfer is used to warm the incoming air.

The first step when it comes to energy efficiency is actually a correct calculation of the hood exhaust airflow volume. Preventing unnecessarily excessive exhaust is the first and most successful step. Our hood box calculation page will assist you with this. The information in our Hood Features for Industrial Kitchens page will be helpful for hood features and its placement to ensure the most efficient smoke exhaust air volume.

There is an enormous amount of money to recover the heat from the exhaust air after calculating the most appropriate solutions for the right angle of the hood. With the heat recovered from the exhaust air of the hood, it is possible to heat the kitchen fresh air without any additional heating. In this case, the operating cost of the kitchen fresh air heating is reduced to zero and gains in investment costs hence reducing the sizes of kitchen equipment. Especially in applications where heating and cooling are performed with DX heat pump systems, the cost of investment also falls. You can find the properties of our heat recovery models in the Combovento HR link. More detailed information on the heat recovery and blowing temperatures to be obtained from this product is extracted from the product table. Please feel free to contact our company in this regard.

You can review our Heat Recovery Properties page for heat recovery system features and basics. For a sample application and its results, you can also check out our Combovento HR Sample Application page.

In addition to this, we also apply some optimization practices to ensure energy efficiency. These include air-conditioning work in the kitchen, hood exhaust optimization, heat-based calculations, hood selection and hood optimizations with the design of the air-conditioner make-up air (fresh air).

We invite all our friends to consider energy efficiency in order to make our future a better habitable world.
