The unit uses two electrostatic precipitator (ESP) modules and carbon filters to remove grease, smoke and odors from the exhaust airstream. For solid fuel applications, three ESP modules and two carbon modules handle the cooking load.
As air enters the ESP cell it passes by an ionizer that positively charges the particles in the airstream. Upon entering the collector portion of the cell, the particles are attracted to negatively charged plates like a magnet. The plates capture and remove the contaminants from the airstream, eliminating the need to change out filters thereby reducing maintenance.
An automated cell wash down sequence allows the grease that has been extracted from the airstream to be removed by site personnel with the touch of a button, eliminating the need for manual cleaning.
The construction of the unit allows it to be mounted within 12-inches of combustibles from the top of the unit and 6-inches on the sides and bottom to fit into tight mechanical rooms or ceiling spaces. The ESP cells are lightweight and durable at less than 35-pounds for ease of removal during maintenance. The universal size eliminates the possibility of loading cells in the wrong order or position. It also comes with an automatic cell discharge system which allows the cells to be discharged by the system. This eliminates the risk of electrical shock to maintenance personnel.
The Grease Trapper ESP is UL 1978 Listed for Factory-Built Grease Duct Standards and meets UL 867 Standard for Electrostatic Air Cleaners.
