The range hood system consists of five main components:

  • Extractor hood
  • Hood filter
  • Exhaust fan
  • Drain line
  • Roof retaining system

With proper care, these components form a seamless system that keeps large kitchens running smoothly.

Extractor hood: An extractor hood is a chimney-like device that hangs over the stove. The fan cover operates the fan to remove particles from oil, odor, odor, and steam/smoke. The fat trap also removes fat accumulation.

Hood filter: The hood filter is the first engine in the hood. This is a filter that traps airborne particles in your kitchen. Without them, the particles in the air again float around the kitchen and clog the air.

Exhaust fan: Exhaust fans are mostly located on the front cover, but not always. The exhaust fan draws old polluted air from the kitchen and pushes it through the ventilation holes until the air can escape.

Drain line: The drain line (or grease line) allows grease, steam, and all other contaminated particles to go directly to the outside. After fans and hood filters pick up particles, they pass through metal ducts and are released into the air, often on the roof.

Roof retaining systems: Grease can seriously damage roofs, causing leaks and a fire hazard (just a few) so a roof retaining system is mandatory for the safety of your building. The roof retaining system has a grease drain and grease trap, which means it must be emptied regularly to prevent spills.
