Inductive curtain hood with 10% + low speed diffusion

The capture efficiency is optimized by an inductive curtain calibrated and judiciously oriented towards the filters, without disturbing the cook.

Heat and steam emissions are perfectly contained in the hood with flow rates of 30% lower than those of a conventional hood.

The fresh air compensation in the area to be treated is done by the front plenum equipped with a double distribution system for low and uniform speeds.

Comfort and efficiency guaranteed.

The VORAX ECO system automatically modulates the extraction and introduction flow rates as a function of temperature and humidity.

The flow rates are adjusted as needed, thus limiting the consumption of the fans and the heating coils. The speed of the fans and the noise level are most of the time reduced for better staff comfort.

Commissioning, provided by VIM throughout France, guarantees the result, from selection to operational operation.
