From the humble chip shop to the local takeaway; the roadside pub to the gourmet restaurant. Commercial kitchens, in their myriad shapes and sizes, have since the dawn of time relieved an unrelenting hunger across the nation. But their beauty, with sizzling onions, the incessant rush of chefs, the condensation on cold windows, is only half of the story. Alongside a blend of fine tastes and scents is a dirtier world, one of grease and fumes; the by-product of vigorous cooking. This grisly world is kept in check by mechanical vents and steel extract hoods, each with its own role in keeping kitchen occupants safe. If the balance between the two worlds is not carefully managed, the commercial kitchen could be brought to its knees.
If you manage or work in a commercial kitchen, you may have encountered one of its more unfortunate sides. Bad odours, produced by grease, carbon and steam deposits can spring up at any time in all their grimness. Sometimes they don’t go away. This isn’t just a problem for people inside, but for those in the surrounding environment. To regulate this, going above and beyond the typical tasks of extract hoods and vent maintenance, CK Direct are offering their very own product that’s already become the much sought-after answer. The Ozocube™ is a cost-effective addition to the kitchen ventilation setup that eradicates smells, saves money and keeps you on top of safety standards.
The CK Direct Ozocube™ is a high efficiency ozone generator unit, ideal for use in commercial kitchens, food processing plants and factories. The unit is installed between the extraction point and the exhaust fan, external to the ductwork, making servicing and maintenance much easier. The unit eliminates smells by oxidising pathogens in the exhaust pipes and also prevents the build-up of residue in the ductwork, preventing failures in fans and fire hazards. Ozocube™ is also the most powerful Odour Control Unit available to the UK market.
It is in essence a regulator, a silent overseer of your other ventilation that allows it all to live in greater harmony. The result is a nicer environment for your staff to work in, your customers to enjoy and your neighbours to appreciate – Free of overpowering smells and cacophonous noise.
A case of bad odour may not seem like a problem worth spending your money on but consider that regular foul smells can justifiably incur complaints from residents under the Environmental Protection Act (1990). A very high-profile restaurant in London had this exact problem as bad smells from the kitchen led to a complaint from a nearby bank. After installing Ozocube™, an official report confirmed that there was subsequently ‘no odour apparent’. Ozocube™ kept chefs, customers and a nearby business very happy.
On top of its noise and smell reduction duties, Ozocube could put some money back in your pocket. By allowing your ventilation to run more efficiently it can reduce running costs by 50% and increases the lifespan of the rest of your equipment. As a business investment alone, considering its relatively cheap price, it’s a product that merits some fanfare.
An energy saver, noise reducer, odour killer and money saver, Ozocube™ is a low-risk, all-in-one for commercial kitchens. Head over to http://www.ckdirect.co.uk/product/ozocube/ to get your ventilation running smoothly and keep your kitchen doing what it does best: making great food.
