People who talk, cough, cough, breathe or, for example, panting during exercise emit particles, also known as aerosols. An aerosol is a colloidal mixture of all kinds of solid, liquid and gas particles, with a size of 0.12 to 200 micrometers. Aerosols are proven carriers of germs and these tiny droplets can float in a room for hours. Breathing it in can cause illnesses such as the flu or illness from the coronavirus. All the more important that these particles are filtered out of the air.

The maintenance of vehicles and machines often involves the use of oil and grease. As a result, companies in machine maintenance and car garages often have to contend with polluted air due to oil mist. A lot of fat and oil is also used in the preparation of food. This dissolves, evaporates and spreads through the air with a nasty impact on the body as a result. As a result, staff in restaurants, cafes, hotels, snack bars or catering are often the victims of unhealthy air. Euromate offers the solution to this problem with the oil extractor.

"Since the installation of the units the nuisance to local residents and shop owners has been eliminated."
El Gaucho Argentinian Steakhouse is a chain restaurant with several locations in Vietnam and two in Thailand featuring traditional steakhouse gastronomy with a modern ambiance while offering a high standard of service and hospitality. The Argentinian touch can be found in every aspect of the restaurant concept: the menu, the beer, wine and cocktails list and the ambiance. The authentic steak cuisine is brought to the people of Asia with a passion for quality food, prime meats and, of course, Argentina.
One of the Thailand restaurants, located in Bangkok, has a 40-table dining room and is open from 11:00 am to midnight, 7 days a week. The kitchen staff ranges from five to seven people, to accommodate peak hours.
This restaurant, which features a cuisine of steak and spaghetti, opened in December 2015 in a rented space on the ground floor of a building located in an area with many
popular restaurants surrounded by several condominium complexes and fashion shops.
The kitchen was initially only equipped with a simple ventilation system, and the type of business along with the long opening hours every day of the week meant that smoke and odours from the cooking became objectionable to many people in the neighbourhood. The building management had been receiving complaints from residents and shop owners since the restaurant opened, and they could see no other solution than to ask the restaurant to move out.
While the smell was the main reason for complaints, smoke and grease were also causing problems. As grease began to accumulate in the extractor duct and on the fans, the situation started to become a fire hazard, and particulate matter emissions in the smoke were a new source of environmental air pollution. El Gaucho naturally did not want to move out, so they sought a solution to the problems that would allow them to continue to operate the restaurant while keeping their neighbours happy.
Nearly two months after the grand opening, at a loss to solve the smoke and odour nuisance problems, the El Gaucho management went online to find a solution. This led them to contact Euromate’s reputable local distributor Cool Dee Pa Electric Company, which sent a specialist to survey the situation on location and provide professional advice. The restaurant owners decided to purchase two Euromate units, and the installation was completed within days.
One SFE 25 and one SFC 25 are mounted at the ceiling of the kitchen. The improvement has been remarkable: there is no longer any smoke or odour, and there has not been a single complaint from neighbours. Even the chef and his assistants say the lack of smoke and odour in the kitchen has made their work much more enjoyable.
Distributor Cool Dee Pa Electric Company visits every two months to perform maintenance, which includes replacing the SFC filter, swapping the electrostatic filter in the SFE unit and cleaning the used one back at their workshop. This service keeps the systems operating like new, so the El Gaucho management can sleep easy knowing they will never again face complaints about odour nuisance from their restaurant.
Virtually all cooking processes in professional kitchens produce soot particles, odours and grease. The risk of fire is elevated if more grease accumulates in the extraction ducts and fans.
Euromate develops filter systems for use in professional kitchens. At the heart of the SFE is an electrostatic filter. The SFE absorbs the very smallest grease and soot particles which can easily pass through the mechanical filters in an extractor hood.
The SFC stationary filter unit is ideal for installation in duct systems and primarily filters odours and gases by means of activated carbon filter cylinders with bayonet fittings.
