Many airports have a large selection of hospitality services and souvenir shops. The restaurants all have a kitchen, and the food preparation produces unpleasant odours and greasy air (from deep-fat fryers, for example). The greasy air will eventually accumulate in the extraction duct, which creates a fire hazard. During cooking all sorts of cooking odours are produced that some will find displeasing, certainly in a neighbouring clothing or perfume shop. This is a nuisance but can be solved easily with kitchen extraction at the airport.
Airports can be confronted with specific complaints concerning kitchen fumes and vapours. Therefore Euromate has developed an extraction system specially for the airport sector that can separate the greasy vapours from the air and also remove the unpleasant odours. This commercial kitchen ventilation system is called the SFE and draws the polluted kitchen fumes through a mechanical pre-filter and then through an ionisation filter. This filters both large and small grease particles out of the air. The removal of grease and fumes with this solution results in less odour nuisance because much of the odours are trapped in the grease particles.
Restaurants at airports that make use of the SFE will have less fire danger as well as less odour nuisance. This is important, because in the future the government is going to place ever greater restrictions on emissions of kitchen vapours to the environment.
Improvement of the air quality at an airport through kitchen extraction provides benefits, such as:
