KCD – Kitchen Ceiling Diffuser

High airflow capacities

The Halton model KCD Kitchen Ceiling Diffuser provides for a high volume of supply air ideally within 2 feet of the hood(s) or flush-mounted with the hood without disrupting the hood performance. Tested performance of supply air discharge ensures that airflow, pressure drop, and N.C. specifications are met.

The KCD diffusers work in concert with Halton VAV boxes and airflow measuring stations, combined with M.A.R.V.E.L.+ control system to provide an integrated Demand Based variable volume exhaust and supply package with zone control for commercial kitchens.

Overview

Uncontrolled draughts – even the smallest ones – can totally ruin the Capture & Containment capacity of hoods and ventilated ceilings. A well designed make up air strategy contributes not only to guarantee this efficiency but also to the final Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) inside the kitchen. It should always be considered as an inherent part of the kitchen ventilation solution.

Halton’s KCD ceiling diffuser has been specifically designed for kitchens. It provides for a high volume of supply air ideally at 60 cm minimum of the hood(s) without disrupting hood performance. Tested performance of supply air discharge ensures that airflow, pressure drop, and NC (Noise Criteria) specifications are met.

KCD diffusers are particularly suitable for small kitchens, especially when they are equipped with Halton’s M.A.R.V.E.L. (Demand Controlled Ventilation). This technology constantly adjusts the exhaust airflow rates depending on cooking activity as well as the associated supply airflow rates. KCD diffusers have an excellent reaction to variable airflows.

  • Best balance ratio efficiency/ceiling coverage.
  • Limited draft compared to traditional 4-way diffusers. Do not degrade the capture efficiency of the hoods.
  • Low pressure drop and sound pressure levels.
  • Front face made of 1.0 mm AISI 304 stainless steel. Plenum made of galvanised steel.
  • Front face mounted on hinges for easy access to the MSM balancing damper (if used). Can be totally removed for cleaning.
  • Compatible with 600×600 mm ceilings.
  • Optional: plenum equipped with MSM balancing damper.
