Ventilation of cafeteria kitchens for educational facilities.

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

On a smaller scale compared to central kitchens, the cafeterias (canteens) for educational facilities face the similar challenges.

Education and health sectors are one of the most significant catering segments. Producing a large number of well balanced meals, in perfect safety, with ever-increasing quality demands and strong financial constraints! This is the equation the public or private operators of cafeteria kitchens for education have to solve. It is not an easy one.

Halton’s ventilation solutions address several unknowns to contribute to achieving all these challenges directly.

Typical challenges

On a  smaller scale compared to central kitchens, canteen kitchens are also characterized by cooking appliances of high capacity, but the comparison stops there. As everything is prepared on site, cafeterias have a wider variety of cooking appliances, whether located in the production area or on complementary kiosks in the dining area. The variability of the exhaust needs is significant. In some configurations, the exhaust airflow needs can move from the production to the dining area.

Hygiene is vital for such a production tool. The requirements belong to the strongest of the catering business, at all steps, including the ventilation system, which shall not – among other demands – generate cross-contamination of the air.

Finally, a big trend is in addition to open more and more the cafeteria on the production kitchens which does not facilitate the air flows control.
