Honeycomb Grease Filters
Elgee Honeycomb grease filters are made from high quality aluminum
throughout. The filter media is made from 50mm wide aluminum foil, which is
specially corrugated into a herringbone shaped channel. This foil when placed
one on top of the other will form a curved honeycomb channel. When the incoming
grease laden air passes through this media, the air changes direction. The
resultant change in inertia causes the grease to cling and condense onto the
aluminum surface. This prevents grease from entering the exhaust system.
This honeycomb media is encased in a 50mm thick aluminum frame. All frames have drain holes for the cooking fat to drain in to the canopy channels. All filters are fitted with steel plated retractable handles. Large D handles, which are fitted offset, are also available at an additional cost.
Honeycomb filters are fully washable panel filter units. They provide extremely low resistance to air flow (refer to test data) and ease of cleaning.
Elgee Honeycomb grease filters must always be installed with its face at not more than 30° from the vertical to minimize the possibility of grease dripping off the filter face. It is important to ensure that the filter is installed with the cell layer vertical i.e. with the handles on the vertical side of the filter. Under no circumstances must the filter be installed with the layer going horizontally.
Maintenance / Service:
Elgee Honeycomb grease filters must be cleaned regularly to minimize the possibility of collected grease dropping back in the semi – liquid form of the cell. Cleaners containing caustic solution must not be used as they will corrode the aluminum from which the unit is made so simply clean the filter using a water jet.
