The Pillars of a Safe and Efficient Kitchen
Every commercial kitchen is a complex ecosystem of equipment and systems working in harmony. TR19 grease compliance touches upon several of these components, ensuring they function optimally and safely. Here’s a closer look at these integral parts:
The unsung heroes of the kitchen, ventilation systems ensure that the air remains fresh, free from contaminants, and at a comfortable temperature. TR19 standards ensure that these systems are regularly inspected and cleaned, preventing any grease accumulation that could hamper their efficiency.
Hoods and Filtration Systems:
Strategically positioned over cooking appliances, these systems are the first line of defence against airborne grease particles. Adhering to TR19 ensures that these hoods and filters remain effective, capturing and containing grease before it can infiltrate other systems.
Air Circulation Fans:
These fans play a pivotal role in maintaining air quality, circulating fresh air, and expelling contaminants. TR19 compliance ensures that these fans remain free from grease build-up, allowing them to function at their peak efficiency.
To ensure thorough cleaning and inspection, access points or hatches are integrated into the ductwork. TR19 standards mandate that these hatches are appropriately sealed and positioned at regular intervals, facilitating comprehensive inspections.
Air Management Units (AMU):
These units condition and circulate air within the kitchen, contributing to a comfortable environment for the staff. TR19 guidelines ensure that AMUs are regularly maintained and cleaned, ensuring a consistent flow of clean air.
Dampers or airflow regulators control the volume of air flowing through the duct system. TR19 compliance ensures that these components function correctly, free from any grease that could compromise their operation.
By ensuring that each of these components adheres to TR19 standards, commercial kitchens can operate with the confidence that they are providing a safe and efficient environment for both staff and patrons.
