Cooking food is usually associated with pleasant fragrances and aromas.
Outside industrial kitchens however, some may perceive the intensity and persistence of odours as an olfactive nuisance. This can add to problems deriving from the formation and settling of oils and fats.
Most of the time, the type and quantity of pollutants emitted during the cooking of food depend on products cooked and cooking methods.
Substances responsible for such osmogenic problems include mostly:
Complaints of olfactive nuisance are usually coming from people who live in the neighbourhood of:
The emission of strong odours is common to many processes related to restaurant activities, such as grilling, frying or cooking of food, as a whole.
These kinds of odorigenous emissions do not present toxicological types of risks, but the problem of low social acceptability threshold remains, due to the negative impact on the quality of life for the population living in the area where such activities take place.
Usually, these places are located populated areas, often in the historical districts of cities, thus forced to share spaces with residential buildings and commercial activities.
For the treatment of the air exhausted by stacks from industrial kitchens and the abatement of odorigenous emissions, Labiotest designs and sets up custom-made equipment using the technology of osmogenic ultrasound barriers.
The abatement of odours and fumes deriving from industrial kitchens may take place through various process steps:
Zephiro UTS is the ultrasound spraying system that, associated with a neutralizing product and set up on the suction duct located upstream of the exhaust stack, diffuses a micronized specific aerosol to abate kitchen odours.
The formation of oils and fats layers in ducts and sinks used to condensate fats, together with an inadequate maintenance schedule, may lead to:
These operations imply higher costs for food cooking activities.
The solution to fats settling in industrial kitchens drains is the combined use of two specific products: Smasher and Smasher p, two biological products consisting of natural selected and concentrated microorganism mixtures.
The constant use of a combination of such products guarantees reducing at 70%, at least, the required operations implying fats management costs.
Most of the time, another critical aspect in kitchens of restaurants, cafeterias and supermarkets deli counters is the cleaning of floors, because of the presence of fats and oils.
Standard cleaning agents and disinfectants do not eliminate bacteria present on surfaces and floors.
