Lincat introduce innovative range of ductless air recirculation units
Lincat, the UK’s leading manufacturer of commercial catering equipment, has launched Refresh, a unique new range of ductless air recirculation units. Developed in conjunction with sister company Britannia Kitchen Ventilation, these self-contained, free standing kitchen air recirculation units are designed to be used where ducting to the outside is impractical.
They work by extracting the cooking fumes from directly above the equipment, filtering that contaminated air through an advanced four-stage filtration process before recirculating clean air back into the kitchen. They are ideal therefore where venting to the atmosphere is impossible, difficult or costly. Refresh units are designed to be used with electric rather than gas equipment since these must, on every occasion, be vented to the outside with safety interlocks.
“There are many occasions where venting to the outside is either difficult or impossible,” said Rachel Smith, Marketing Manager of Lincat. “Take concession areas within airports or train stations for example, or listed buildings in conservation areas. Our new Refresh units are designed to enable you to operate where you might not have been able to before, or to expand your existing output, with a minimum of disruption or additional investment.”
There are three Refresh units in the range – the Refresh Mini, Midi and Maxi. They can accommodate either single or multiple items of equipment up to 500mm, 1000mm and 15000mm wide respectively. The Refresh units also benefit from a variable speed controller. This allows the fan to operate at the most appropriate level to deal with the cooking fumes, while maximizing the lifespan of the fan and filters. Easy to install and of robust, stainless steel construction, each Refresh unit is supplied with a comprehensive two year onsite parts and labour warranty.
Lincat Ltd manufactures one of the world’s most comprehensive ranges of catering equipment. Products are sold in the UK and in over 50 countries worldwide through a comprehensive network of distributors.
