BENEFITS OF KITCHEN
GREASE FILTERS

FIRE PROTECTION

Shepherd Filters capture the grease before it enters the exhaust system reducing the grease build-up and risk of fires. Wool is a natural fire retardant material.

SAVES MONEY

Airborne grease is prevented from entering the kitchen hood exhaust system and provides immediate savings by reducing labour costs associated with cleaning metal grease filters, therefore reducing the number of kitchen duct cleanings dramatically.

WATER SAVINGS

Reducing the current kitchen duct cleaning schedule, along with reduced grease hood cleanings, greatly reduces the amount of water and chemicals used to maintain a clean system.

SUSTAINABLE

Save energy with a cleaner kitchen exhaust system, rooftop fans, HVAC and other rooftop equipment results in more efficient operation of the equipment, not to mention less maintenance. Wool is a renewable material source.

BIODEGRADABLE

Shepherd Filters are made from Australian Wool. The filter media is carbon-neutral and will breakdown in the landfill. In today’s world we all need to do our part to help the environment.

EASY INSTALL

Shepherd Filters are simply installed upstream / in front of a grease kitchen filter that can be removed and disposed of in seconds.

First let’s ask, what exactly does it mean to be environmentally friendly?

Environment-friendly, eco-friendly, nature-friendly, and green are all marketing terms referring to goods and services, laws, guidelines and policies that inflict reduced, minimal, or no harm upon ecosystems or the environment.

How can we be more environmentally friendly when it comes to cleaning a commercial kitchen exhaust system?

Use Less Water. The amount of water used to clean kitchen grease filters daily/weekly/monthly can mount up quickly. The Australian Bureau of Statistics says since 2002 increasing evidence of the adverse effects of increased water use on river health, is changing the way we regard water. It is now widely recognised that taking too much water out of Australia’s rivers and groundwater systems can have detrimental economic and environmental consequences.

Use Less Chemicals. Chemicals can enter the air, water, and soil when they are produced, used or disposed. Their impact on the environment is determined by the amount of the chemical that is released, the type and concentration of the chemical, and where it is found. Some chemicals can be harmful if released to the environment even when there is not an immediate, visible impact. Some chemicals are of concern as they can work their way into the food chain and accumulate and/or persist in the environment for many years.

Shepherd Filters disposable kitchen grease filters assist your business to become friendlier for the environment. Our filters are made from wool, and can be thrown out with your regular trash. Why Wool?

Natural – Wool is a protein fibre formed in the skin of sheep, and is one hundred percent natural, not manmade.
Renewable – As long as there is grass for sheep to graze on, every year they will produce a new fleece; making wool a renewable fibre source.

Biodegradable – At the end of its useful life, wool can be returned to the soil, where it decomposes, releasing valuable nutrients into the ground. When a natural wool fibre is disposed of in soil, it takes a very short time to break down, whereas most synthetics are extremely slow to degrade, also with mixed synthetics & wool only the wool is biodegradable.
A Safer Solution – Wool is naturally safe. It does not promote the growth of bacteria. Due to its high water and nitrogen content, wool is naturally flame-retardant, and has a far higher ignition threshold than many other fibres.

Shepherd Filters disposable kitchen grease filters capture up to 98% of airborne grease before it enters your kitchen exhaust system, not only saving you, but saving the environment. Australian Made with Australian Wool.
