Halton KWH is a galley water wash hood for use in marine & offshore applications. The highly efficient KWH hood uses Halton Capture Jet™ technology, which allows the hood to operate with up to 30% lower exhaust airflow rates than traditional hoods. The KWH galley hood automatically washes down the grease filters without the need for removal of the filters from the hood. The washing cycle, operated by a control cabinet CCW-M OR WR (see separate brochure), is fully automatic and programmable for use in different operating conditions. The washing process can be manually overridden, when required.

*If fire or shut-off damper is located at the duct, Halton suggests two default solutions for duct connection:
- Eurovent-collar with flange
- Welded L-collar
The KWH hood comprises a Capture Jet™ air supply module, a light fixture, adjustment dampers, airflow measurement taps and KSA grease filters. All parts of the hood are manufactured from polished stainless steel EN 1.4301 (AISI304). The joints at the lower edges of the device are watertight. A drain pipe connection is fitted into the exhaust plenum in order to enable removal of the grease and dirt extracted by the KSA multi-cyclone filters and to drain the washing water. The Capture Jet™ supply plenum is thermally insulated through the use of mineral wool material to prevent condensation on the inner face above the cooking equipment.

Options and Accessories
- Non-standard spigots: choice of size and position
- UV-light filtration – a combination of KSA filter, mesh filter and ultraviolet-light technology
- EN 1.4404 (AISI316L) construction
- Certified fire damper manufactured of EN 1.4301 (AISI304) or EN 1.4404 (AISI316L)
- Wet chemical fire suppression system
- M.A.R.V.E.L. demand-based ventilation system
- More accessories under Product Code
- Capture air enters the Capture Jet plenum.
- Contaminated air and heat rises from the cooking appliances.
- Contaminated air is directed into the hood by Halton patented Capture Jet technology.
- KSA multi-cyclone filters remove grease and contaminants from the air stream with the aid of centrifugal effect. According to independent laboratory tests KSA is the most efficient mechanical grease filter on the market.
- Mesh filter balances the airflow inside exhaust plenum and apply more filtration to the air. Together with KSA filter this doubles filtration efficiency. Mesh filter is available as an option.
- Based on Halton’s patented highly efficiency Capture JetTM solution and advanced mechanical KSA filter technology, the UV-light technology with scheduled maintenance keeps the plenum and duct virtually grease-free and mitigates the cooking odor and emissions.
The grease vapor and effluents that are not collected by high-efficiency filters pass over the lamps. This causes a chemical reaction that destroys the grease and converts it into carbon dioxide and water vapor. The chemical action carries over into the duct and helps keep the duct and exhaust fan clean. UV-filtration is available as an option.
- Cleaned exhaust air contains small amounts of Ozone which further cleans the ducts downstream. All excess Ozone converts back into Oxygen.
- At scheduled times the washing control cabinet stops the hood operation and begins a washing cycle. Hot water with mild detergent is pumped into the hood spray nozzles, washing the essential parts of the exhaust plenum including UV-lights and filters.
- The waste from the washing cycle is drained from the hood via the drain connection.

Demand based filtration
Halton KSA filter
- Minimisation of grease deposits in the ducts
- Enhanced hygiene and safety
The KSA grease filters shall be constructed of stainless steel EN 1.4301 (AISI304). The grease filters shall be supplied in modular size of 500x330x50 mm and shall be removable via two folding handles. The grease filters shall have a honeycomb design in order to allow high grease filtration efficiency with the aid of centrifugal effect in filter honeycombs.
Mechanical filtration is recommended to be used in hoods with low utilization rate and cooking process producing mainly large grease particles (> 8 microns), e.g. food prepared with gas fryers, griddles and broilers (source ASHRAE).
Halton’s UV-light technology is the most efficient solution for hoods with medium to high utilization rate and cooking processes producing all sizes of grease particles, e.g. food prepared with electric ranges, griddles and all type of broilers. In the UV-light concept, most of the grease particles are first filtered with mechanical filtration (type KSA). The mesh filter behind the KSA spreads the airflow and the remaining grease particles inside the hood chamber. This increases filtration efficiency up to 50% with grease particles sizes between 5-8 microns. Based on Halton’s patented highly efficiency Capture JetTM solution and advanced mechanical KSA filter technology, the UV-light technology with scheduled maintenance keeps the plenum and duct virtually grease-free and mitigates the cooking odor and emissions.
The grease vapor and effluents that are not collected by high-efficiency filters pass over the lamps. This causes a chemical reaction that destroys the grease and converts it into carbon dioxide and water vapor. The chemical action carries over into the duct and helps keep the duct and exhaust fan clean.
The duct connections and adjustment dampers for supply and exhaust air shall be constructed from stainless steel.The dampers shall be adjustable.
Each canopy shall be delivered with a fluorescent light fixtures or LED light fixtures providing approx. an average illuminance of 500 lux at the work surfaces of the cooking appliances.
