UWF – Capture Ray™ and Water Wash hood (CE)

With Capture Jet™ Technology and integrated makeup air

CE Marked (UKCA pending) – The UWF hood is a highly efficient kitchen ventilation solution. Based on the use of Ultraviolet lamps (UV-C) which neutralises grease vapours and particles, the Capture Ray™ technology neutralises grease vapours and particles. It keeps the plenum and ductwork virtually grease-free and reduces the cooking odours emissions. In addition, The Water Wash technology washes down the grease filters and the exhaust plenum automatically.

The UWF hoods are also equipped with the Capture Jet™ technology, with front and side double Jets. They require 30% to 40% less exhaust air volume than traditional hoods. In addition, they are equipped with a low-velocity makeup air system built into the front face.

UWF hoods are Halton’s “all in one” solution, resulting in some unique benefits. It is a combination of the technologies and benefits of UVF and KWF hoods that make it one of the most efficient kitchen ventilation solutions.

It is suitable for LEED(1) projects and can be used in all closed, open or show kitchens particularly those with an intense level of activity (central kitchens, hotels, hospitals, etc).

The Capture Ray™ technology neutralises the grease carried by the exhausted air and also drastically reduces the odours emissions for the kitchen while the Water Wash automatically carries out the regular cleaning of the filters, with no outside intervention necessary.

UWF hoods are also equipped with the Capture Jet™ technology and a low-velocity make up air on the front face.

  • HACCP(2) certified.
  • Considerable energy savings: 30 to 40% less exhaust airflow rates thanks to Capture Jet™ technology.
  • Huge savings on maintenance and enhanced safety: Two-level filtering with highly-efficient KSA cyclonic filters (UL, NSF and LPS 1263 certified). Neutralisation of remaining grease particles and vapours due to the Capture Ray™ technology.
  • No grease deposits in the exhaust plenum and ductwork. The Water Wash technology automatically cleans the filters with no staff intervention.
  • Cleaning costs are reduced to the minimum possible level while hygiene and fire safety levels are at the highest.
  • The UV Capture Ray™ technology also reduces drastically the odours emissions.
  •  UWF-OD  – The UV On Demand option activates the lamps only when cooking appliances are actually used and saves up to one lamps set where other UV systems require two.
  • Better capture and comfort due to a low-velocity diffuser built into the front face.
  • Total access security to UV-C lamps.
  • Requires CCW control cabinet.
  • Equipped with Halton Connect IoT (Internet of Things) platform with advanced 24/7 distant monitoring capabilities.
  • Highest value of ownership thanks to Halton Connect & Care smart services available as an option from kitchens commissioning.
  • Halton Skyline LED culinary light provides the best visual comfort while contributing to further improve the safety and the energy savings.
  • When extended to the whole kitchen, the Human Centric version of Halton Skyline directly contributes to chefs’ and their teams Wellbeing.
  • Other characteristics and benefits similar to UVF and KWF hoods.
