Tyler Schilling: Restaurant odor and grease control play an important role, especially in populated areas where nearby residences and/ or other businesses prefer not to smell the foods being cooked. Additionally, in multi- use spaces, proper grease and odor control prevents apartments, hotel rooms, and the like from taking on the smell of the restaurant within the building. Minimiz- ing grease throughout the system reduces maintenance and fire risk as well as the effects of grease on roofs, parking lots, vehicles and adjacent structures. Q: Why did Accurex develop the Grease Trapper™ line of pollution control units? TS: Our new product devel- opment at Accurex is based on feedback from end-users in terms of pain points. Cus- tomers told us they wanted better environmental control that is simple to maintain and operate. Accurex's Grease Trapper pollution control units remove grease, smoke and odors from the exhaust airstream, and are designed to fit the custom- ers' need for easy operation and maintenance. Q: How do the Grease Trapper Pollution Control Units work? TS: The Grease Trapper three-stage filtration system removes 95% or more of all grease particles from the exhaust airstream, and its activated carbon filter panels effectively reduce cooking odors. For ease of maintenance, independent pressure switches signal when any of the three filter stages need replacing. The latest addition to the product line, the Grease Trapper ESP™, uses two electrostatic precipitator (ESP) modules and carbon filters to remove grease, smoke and odors from the exhaust airstream. As air enters the ESP cell, it passes by an ionizer that positively charges the particles in the airstream. Upon entering the collector portion of the cell, the particles are attracted to negatively charged plates like a magnet. The plates capture and remove the contaminants from the airstream, eliminat- ing the need to change out the filters thereby reducing maintenance. An automated cell wash down sequence al- lows the grease that has been extracted from the airstream to be easily removed by site personnel with the touch of a button, eliminating the need for frequent manual cleaning. The ESP cells are lightweight and durable for ease of removal during maintenance, and their universal size elimi- nates the possibility of loading cells in the wrong order or position. Both units can be mounted within 12 inches of combustibles from the top of the unit and 6 inches on the sides and bottom to easily fit into tight mechanical rooms or ceiling spaces. Q: Do the Grease Trapper Pollution Control Units meet safety test standards? TS: Yes, they do. Both the Grease Trapper and the Grease Trapper ESP are UL 1978 Listed for Factory-Built Grease Duct Standards and the Grease Trapper ESP also meets UL 867 Standard for Electrostatic Air Clean- ers, making them among the safest units on the market. www.accurex.com info@accurex.com 800.333.1400 © 2017 Accurex, LLC Pollution Control A Q&A with Tyler Schilling, Product Manager, Accurex ® The Accurex Grease Trapper ESP™ Pollution Control Unit uses two electrostatic precipitator (ESP) modules and carbon filters to remove grease, smoke and odors from the exhaust airstream.
