Environmental and waste management specialist Filta Group has extended its FiltaFog Cyclone range of grease recovery units with the addition of a new LL model for lower connection heights.
Together with the standard model, FiltaFog Cyclone LL offers a solution for all commercial kitchens and has already proved a success for a new Wagamama restaurant in the West Midlands.
FiltaFog Cyclone is designed to deliver high levels of fat, oil and grease (FOG) retention whilst using less energy than traditional GRUs and ensure a better kitchen environment.
Using eight independent hydro cyclones, it is claimed to offer two-stage FOG separation and recovery capable of recovering approximately 2,000 litres of quality oil every year, worth £400 to the operator, with less than 25 parts per million FOG at outlet.
It also offers low energy consumption, said to cost as little as £8 per year to run, compared with an estimated £500 per year for an equivalent competitor GRU. A sealed outlet with no need for staff to remove covers, there are claimed to be no odours, reduced cleaning time and an improved kitchen environment.
The new LL model has been developed to provide grease recovery without a pump, even where outlet heights on cookline and dishwash lines are low. Thanks to extensive development by Filta engineers working in the field, it allows a connection height of 126mm inlet and 65mm outlet, operating on a gravity feed.
This has already proved to be the answer to kitchen challenges at the new Wagamama at West Midlands Designer Outlet, where Catering Projects specified a Filta grease management system that would work without a pump despite a connection height of 80mm on the outlet. This should help to keep the ongoing maintenance low, without compromising performance.
Edward Palin, commercial director for Filta Group, said: “FiltaFog Cyclone is a revolutionary product and this technology has already been received fantastically well since it was launched in the UK last year after 15 years of development.
“Now, the additional of the LL model for lower connection heights gives our distribution partners greater flexibility when specifying the technology. It provides a market-leading solution without the need for a pump which can add to the maintenance challenges in a busy kitchen.”
