Halton HIGH PERFORMANCE KITCHEN concept and ENERGY EFFICIENCYAt 800 kWh/m² (1), the catering business is the most energy-intensive activity performed in commercial and residential buildings in the United States, far beyond the hospital sector (at 600 kWh/m²) in this regard. Relatively speaking, this assessment can be considered as applicable to any country and make energy efficiency the most important aspect of our High Performance Kitchen concept.
Would you like to benefit by reducing your exhaust airflow rates by up to 64%?... Or save at least 50% on the kitchen energy consumption?... Or save the equivalent of 5,000 meals?To benefit from an energy efficient kitchen ventilation system, the very first principle is to calculate - before everything - the Capture and Containment efficiency of the canopies, ventilated ceilings, Jet Extraction systems... or any other system specifically designed for show kitchens for example. Combined with a Demand Controlled Ventilation (DCV) system, this can then generate the highest energy savings.The Capture Jet™ and M.A.R.V.E.L. technologies represent the backbone of Halton's High Performance Kitchen concept in terms of energy efficiency. This unique association allows indeed to reduce the exhaust airflow rates by up to 64%.The Capture Jet™ technology ensures capture & containment at reduced air flows. 40% reductions in exhaust rates are not uncommon when compared to conventional systems.> The Capture Jet™ technology on canopies> The Capture Jet™ technology on ventilated ceilingsM.A.R.V.E.L. technology is the first truly intelligent, responsive, and completely flexible demand controlled ventilation (DCV) system specifically designed for canopies and ventilated ceilings. When combined with Capture Jet™ canopies, it allows to reduce the exhaust airflow rates by up to 64%.> More about M.A.R.V.E.L. technologyThese savings can be further more increased!M.A.R.V.E.L. also generates huge savings on the energy consumption of the fans but, above all, is compatible with Halton Pollustop ecology units which can be equipped with a heat recovery module.> More about Pollustop ecology units(1) Energy Efficiency in Buildings, Transforming the Market (WBCSD World Business Council for Sustainable Development).
