UV air treatment is mounted outside ductwork

UV air treatment

Extechnology’s EXE 12 UV-C technology offers a low-carbon solution to nuisance odours from commercial kitchen-extract systems. The UV-C tubes are mounted outside the ductwork, so they present no resistance to airflow. This system uses 12 tubes to control odour and grease by producing ozone, a powerful oxidant that interacts with most pollutants such as odour, bacteria, mould, mildew and grease.

Maintenance requirements are low — a tube replacement every 8000 h or once a year.

The tubes are mounted in a self-contained chamber that is linked to the ductwork or canopy by two spigots 90 mm long and 20 mm in diameter, making it relatively easy to retrofit.
