UV/C and Condensate Hoods:

Airveber > UV/C and Condensate Hoods:



The UV hood combines the effectiveness of traditional filtering systems with the added efficiency of UV lamps that generate ozone in order to break down odors and grease. The air flow that enters, after passing through the labyrinth filters, arrives on the UV lamps and the generated ozone reacts with the grease and the odors to significantly reduce their amounts.




The maintenance of a UV system requires a cleaning, on average, every
600 hours performed by using a detergent soaked cloth. The UV lamps
have a lifetime of approximately 8000 hours after which they lose their effectiveness.
Any anomaly of the UV lamps is indicated by the turning off of the control LEDs placed on the hood.




The UV hood is to be installed similarly to a traditional hood,
where is must be connected to an external extractor of which it will be governed
by an inverter mounted on a control panel characterized by
four speeds.
The purchase of an inverter, specifically designed to work with UV systems, saves energy when operating with
reduced air flow, thereby halving the power of the UV lamps. The inverter has the capability to program the four speeds according
to the characteristics of the system: the first two correspond to the lowest speeds that will only operate half of the lamps,
while the last two correspond to the maximum flow rates of extraction that will put into operation all the lamps simultaneously.


In nature, ozone is a gaseous compound found in the layers of the Earth’s atmosphere
(stratosphere). It is of natural origin and helps to protect life
on Earth by creating a defensive barrier that absorbs the ultraviolet rays of the Sun
letting pass only the UV-A rays. Ozone can be produced
artificially by using UV lamps; it oxidizes the organic matter
breaking down grease and odors in the treated air and then transforming them
respectively into dust and odorless molecules. The ozone generated by the UV lamps
ensures the distribution of bacteria and viruses that normally
generate inside to the extraction plenum.

The hood is simply resting on the oven; it does not need any ducting for the discharge of fumes to the outside.


The extracted air is dehumidified and released into the kitchen, which, in winter, will avoid having to replenish with hot air, because a traditional hood, besides extracting the vapors of the oven, also extracts part of the air of the environment in which it is located. The extraction of hot air causes evident energy inefficiency since the air has previously undergone a heating process.


The hood houses a fan motor rated at 200W of power and a condensation chamber where the fumes coming from the oven are handled. The fan is automatically controlled by the electrical board and set to operate at two speed levels. The first speed is useful to overcome the pressure losses associated with the condensation chamber to extract the steam from the oven. The second will automatically actuate when opening the oven door to then return to the normal operating speed once closed. The switching on or off of the furnace/oven hood is automatically controlled by temperature sensors. Two filters are placed on the front, to guarantee the suction of the vapors coming from the opening of the oven.
Stainless steel AISI 304.
No masonry work required.
Absence of channeling.
Energy saving.
Lower CO2 emissions.


With the furnace hood it is possible to save about 0.63 toe (tonnes of oil equivalent) with a reduction in emissions of 1.9 tCO2e (tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent).


The condensation chamber has been designed to avoid any stagnation of water, thus preventing the proliferation of germs and any exposure to the risk of dangerous diseases.
