KSA Cyclonic Filters

Mechanical grease filter for commercial kitchens

KSA cyclonic filter has the highest extraction efficiency while maintaining the lowest pressure loss of any mechanical filtration device. The efficiency limits grease deposition inside the exhaust plenums of hood and ventilated ceilings and the ductwork.

The KSA creates a cost-effective solution and an ideal pre-filtration for other systems like the UV Capture Ray™ technology.

Reduces cleaning costs and energy consumption while boosting kitchens’ hygiene and fire safety.

  • KSA filters are 95% efficient on 10 µm particles with a reasonable pressure loss of 120 Pa.
  • Improved hygiene and fire safety thanks to fewer grease deposits in the exhaust plenums and ducts.
  • Lower maintenance costs due to lower cleaning frequency.
  • Improved noise levels, thanks to the low pressure loss.
  • Reduces the fans’ energy consumption compared to baffle filters, thanks to the lower pressure loss.
  • Improves the performance of UV-C Capture Ray™ technology due to its high extraction rate.

KSA cyclonic filters are composed of vertical honeycomb sections. Opening only at the top and bottom, they are designed to force the air to swirl inside. The centrifugal effect is impactful, and continuous – a mechanism that traditional baffle filters do not have. Particles are thus pushed against the honeycomb walls, resulting in better performance. KSA filters are 95% efficient on 10 µm particles with a reasonable pressure loss of 120 Pa.

KSA filters are 95% efficient on 10 µm particles.

KSA filters are accredited by the UL (Underwriter Laboratories) as flame-resistant and have NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) Hygienic and safe approval. They are fitted on all hoods and ventilated ceilings.

Why are KSA filters a must for the UV Capture Ray™ hoods or ventilated ceilings?

The UV Capture Ray™ technology neutralises the medium and small-sized grease particles as well as the grease vapours. The efficiency on the medium and small grease particles cannot be matched by traditional grease filters. The efficiency of the mechanical filtration upstream of the Capture Ray™ UV lamps improves the neutralisation process. KSA filters are the most efficient mechanical filters from on 5 to 10 µm grease particles with the lowest pressure loss.
