Below are the top four reasons you may find grease inside the hood, despite using the Shepherd Filters solution:
TOP 4 REASONS FOR GREASE INSIDE THE HOOD DESPITE USING SHEPHERD FILTERS
1 – LEAVING FILTERS TOO LONG
Shepherd Filters change colour with use.
Please ensure staff follows the specially designed Filter Change Guide on the wall:
GRILLS – Daily
FRYERS – Every 3-4 days
Contact Shepherd Filters for advice.
2 – COOKING AND/OR CLEANING WITHOUT SHEPHERD FILTERS
Avoid COOKING and/or CLEANING grill, fryer/VAT stations without Shepherd Filters.
The hood should not be without filters any longer than it takes to change them (minutes).
Clean prior to changing.
Choose a low-volume period to avoid the need to cook without Shepherd Filters.
3 – LUGS & PINS CAUSING GAPS
Gaps of any kind allow air to bypass the filter.
There should be no gaps between or around filter frames.
Pins should not be missing and in working order.
Frames should not be sitting on lugs. Be sure to locate them properly so that frames are flush against the hood.
