It is important to understand grease extraction and new options in capturing grease particulate efficiently near the source.
A commonly overlooked byproduct of many cooking processes is grease — overlooked, that is, until it causes problems at a restaurant facility like in this case:
A grease fire in a restaurant at Grand Central Terminal sent thick clouds of smoke billowing into the air according to the New York Daily News.
There were no reported injuries in the fire, which broke out at the Junior’s restaurant at about 2 p.m.
Firefighters brought the blaze under control at around 2:30 p.m.
Smoke filled the lower level concourse. Fire officials said the fire started in ductwork in the restaurant.
Grease build-up in hood plenums, ductwork, exhaust fans, facility roofs, and adjacent equipment increases the risk of fire.
Regular grease extraction system cleaning provides businesses with a long term plan that is fully documented for insurance purposes.
This peace-of-mind can, however, be expensive. So can you reduce your risk of fire and stay compliant without breaking the bank?
Yes you can! Thanks to Shepherd Filters, you can now stop up to 98% of airborne kitchen grease from building up inside the grease extraction system right at the source.
Shepherd Filters virtually eliminates the need to clean filter frames in-house or through a filter exchange company. This equates to a cleaner system year-round, saving you time and money as well as reducing your risk of fire.
There’s no better time to get your system clean and KEEP IT CLEAN!
