Greasy kitchen extracts
Kitchen extract ducts have since long been recognised as a fire hazard. There have been countless fires over the years. The most significant reason for this is inadequate cleaning of the interior of extract ducts.
Every building with cooking facilities has a potential risk of fire that can not be overlooked. Contamination of areas remote from the hood are considered difficult to reach and therefor often not maintained.
The efficiency of an extract system is reduced when it is contaminated with grease, creating a very unpleasant working situation for the employees and increasing the energy consumption.
Insurance losses resulting from fires in kitchen extracts have risen rapidly. Several experts now recommend cleaning kitchen extracts every 6 months.
The robot is inserted in one end of the system, it can be controlled either by using the joy stick or by using "cruise control". When working in short and turning ductwork it is better to control the robot by using the joystick, whereas "cruise control" is preferred in long straight ductwork.
On the front of the robot is a 360° rotating nozzle, which will spray the dry ice on to the surface. As soon as the dry ice hits the grease, it will remove it from the ductwork.
