Elta improves conditions in kitchen of popular pub
The new kitchen ventilation system for The Stag Inn at Mentmore in Buckinghamshire, a popular and well regarded pub and restaurant, is based on a fan from Elta’s PowerPlus DCV range with a pre-programmed Eltadrive frequency inverter converting single phase to 3 phase. The installation work, including canopy and ductwork, was carried out by Systemair Fans & Spares of Nottingham.
The 60-seat restaurant offers a distinctive fusion of British and Mediterranean cuisine.
The Stag Inn is in a conservation area, so there were strict restrictions on the ventilation stacks that were part of the extension work to the kitchen. Steve Wilde, sales manager with Systemair, comments, ‘Limitations on ventilation stacks and building amends impacted on the specification process, but the sales team of Elta Fans was very helpful throughout.’
The PowerPlusDCV (demand controlled ventilation) range, has been designed to cope with temperatures from 40 to 60°C and 95% RH, as well as overcoming high resistance.
Integrating sensors to ensure the levels of smoke, expanded air, cooking odours and exhaust fumes from appliances are maintained at all times enables a very efficient and economical kitchen ventilation system to be created. The Stag Inn’s chef, Mani Rebelo, says, ‘The kitchen is a much improved place to work in , with reduced noise levels and better air quality. The system is very easy to use too.’
