Grease Grabbers



The unique Grease Grabber means reduced cleaning costs and fire risk. The Grease Grabber is a two stage filter that has an overall efficiency of 80%. The front filter works by vortex principle, removing the larger grease particles. This filter is an excellent fire barrier. The secondary filter is a patented design, packed with ceramic beads which collect the smaller grease particles. The combined effect is to collect 100% of the larger grease particles and 80% of the fine particles, leaving just the residue smoke to be exhausted to atmosphere. Frequency of duct cleaning is reduced. We can also supply the first stage only of the Grease Grabber filter. This provides a higher efficiency than regular baffle filters and is an intermediary between baffle and full Grease Grabber efficiency.
