Ventilation of central kitchens for hospitals

Reduce the contribution of the energy and maintenance in the meal cost with the highest efficiency and hygiene level

Central kitchens are extensive scale meal production processes that serve several facilities, public, private, or both.

Hospitals and education sectors are among the most significant catering segments with ever-increasing quality demands combined with increasing financial constraints. This looks like an unsolvable equation. Halton’s ventilation solutions minimize a couple of unknowns to contribute to achieving this challenge directly.

Typical challenges

Producing a large number of well balanced meals in perfect safety and with strong financial constraints. This is the equation the public or private operators of central kitchens for hospitals have to solve. It is clear it is not an easy one.

Central kitchens are characterized by a limited number of cooking appliance types of high capacity. They are often grouped by type, and certain groups are generally not used all times. It results in a significant amount of exhaust variability during normal operation. High demand in exhaust airflow moves or splits between groups of appliances, depending on their use.

Hygiene is vital for such a large scale production operation. The requirements are the most significant of the catering businesses, at processes, including the ventilation system, which shall not generate cross-contamination of the air, along with other demands.
