Filta has joined BESCA’s Vent Hygiene Elite scheme for kitchen extract cleaning.

Environmental services provider Filta has joined BESCA’s (Building Engineering Services Competent Assessment) Vent Hygiene Elite (VHE) scheme, ensuring the competence of its vent hygiene works.

Successfully passing BESA’s (Building Engineering Services Association) rigorous assessment criteria, Filta provides kitchen extract cleaning and maintenance. Its automated extraction duct cleaning system helps operators meet the new increased fire risk management standards for commercial kitchens, in line with the TR19 health and safety standard from BESA.

This allows Filta to self-certify all vent hygiene works carried out to TR19 grease specification.

Filta’s FV2000 automated extraction cleaning system is designed to maintain low levels of grease in accordance with TR19 standards. By using regular treatment operators should be continually compliant with the standards, whereas with traditional deep cleaning of the ductwork where the operator is only as compliant as their last deep-clean.

Through the use of biotechnology, Filta’s automated extraction cleaning service aims to prevent airborne particles of fats, oils and grease from accumulating along the ductwork in kitchen extraction systems. Biological enzymes are sprayed into the extraction and ventilation system by specially installed nozzles, which are pre-programmed to automatically dose a flexible amount at a set time

Graham Roebuck, product manager vent, said: “This is a new shift in vent product offering to be able to provide peace of mind to our customers that our proven highly effective automated extraction duct cleaning system adheres to TR19 specification. We are excited to bring this technological advanced product to the hospitality industry.”
