Greasy exhaust air

Frying and roasting in the food industry:
No more problem with fat and odor

With the TA Luft, greasy exhaust air has become an often difficult-to-solve problem for food processing plants. The vast amounts of vaporous, greasy exhaust air lead to massive grease deposits in the exhaust air ducts and to odor nuisance in the outdoor area.

Even volume flows of more than 15,000 m³/h can be treated with oxytec technology and almost completely freed from grease and odor. The oxytec system is incomparably more effective than thermal aftertreatment and consumes only a fraction of the energy.

The problems

Food processing plants that fry and deep-fry produce clearly noticeable odors in the surrounding area. Residents feel harassed and can complain. This rules out many locations.

Grease in the exhaust air is also a significant problem in the plants. Grease clogs exhaust ducts, which then require extensive cleaning. In addition, grease loads pose a significant fire risk.

Greasy exhaust air, limit values

The TA Luft also covers odor-intensive emissions and depends on the distinguishability from other emissions and the duration of the odor emission. These facts can be determined by grid inspections or dispersion calculation. oxytec plants have no problems to comply with TA Luft.

Our cleaning technology

We first eliminate fats and steam in the exhaust air with specially designed grease separators that are very easy to clean. The fats not retained by these are neutralized by means of UV ozone or plasma technology. The double cleaning effect of the UV light and the free radicals generated by the light comes into play. Activated carbon filters at the end of the cleaning line catch the last residues and odors. If necessary, a wet scrubber can be connected upstream.

The cleaning effect of the plants is up to 99.9%, depending on the requirements and design.
