The highlight on our stand will be one of the world’s most efficient ten thousand cubic meter central air cleaning systems for machine tools, a new SCHAKO Group development together with NOVENCO Building & Industry Germany. Free entry tickets are available under marketing@reven.de.

Pure competence in air.    Also for the machine tool industry!!!

Kitchen ventilation 4.0

Industry 4.0 is understood as connected, autonomous, self-controlling, self-configuring, knowledge- and sensor-based production machines or equipment. Transferred to intelligent kitchen ventilation, that should be a self-controlling and highly efficient kitchen hood! If conventional kitchen ventilation hoods are tested in view of these requirements, they correspond more closely to the state of the first industrial revolution, the mechanisation with water and steam power! Neither modern lighting concepts nor modern technologies for capturing and separating have found their way into conventional kitchen hoods, not talking about autonomous, on-demand control ventilation.

High time, that also in kitchens the industry 4.0 standard will be introduced, high time for a modern kitchen ventilation 4.0!!!!!

For further information please contact us under keynote@reven.de also for an in-house seminar @ your office.

New energy-efficient REVEN LED lighting available now!

REVEN-LED lamps as an alternative to conventional fluorescent light tubes and reduce electricity costs by 50 – 70%. If for example, the lighting is not carried out with 50 conventional fluorescent tubes in a large commercial kitchen with a ventilated ceiling, but the lighting would be alternatively done with modern LED systems with the latest technology, the return of the additional investment for the LEDs is just 2.5 years. This requires the use of modern LED modules. These modules of the latest LED generation are robust against vibrations, can be dimmed infinitely and are very suitable for high switching frequencies. The electricity costs can be reduced by about 50 – 70% compared to fluorescent tubes, because the LEDs consume less electricity. Due to the maintenance-free operation over many years, an upgrade is worthwhile despite the higher acquisition costs. In 5 years, savings of up to € 20,000 can be achieved in such a ventilation ceiling!

Further advantages are: REVEN-LEDs offer their full light output immediately after switching on, without flickering and ensure a very good color reproduction. The technology has a significantly lower CO2 emission than conventional light sources and has no UV and no infrared components. Using a standard DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) driver, a sensible light management is easily realised, because each LED lamp can be individually controlled.

Attention should also be paid to Regulation (EC) No 245/2009 and Regulation No 347/2010 laying down requirements for the environmentally design of lighting products. These regulations have been adopted by the European Commission as an implementation measure of the Ecodesign Directive, and the use of most conventional fluorescent lamps and ballasts is no longer permitted under this regulation!

Conventional Low-Tech Kitchen Ventilation

There is some reason why new European EN 16282 standards demand that a kitchen ventilation have to separate liquid airborne oil and grease particles from the exhaust air! A typical conventional kitchen ventilation is:

– a low price product

– a low tech product

– a simple manufactured stainless steel „box“

Of course any of these products are claiming to have 100% capture and separation efficiency! But do the really have? Catastrophes and fires like described in the video link below are not uncommon and such problems are in commercial kitchens more or less normal.

The main function for a commercial kitchen hood is to a) capture all fumes, steam and aerosol and then b) these particles have to be separated and should NOT be transported and spread all of the exhaust ducts! Based to that, the technology level when it comes to separation in commercial kitchen products is generally spoken a nightmare! Ask manufactures which places you a supper cheap quotation, ask them if they are capable to measure the separation performance of their commercial kitchen hood after installation. At least nine out of ten manufactures will answer you that question with a clear NO but well at least they gave you a „cheap“ quotation….. The real costs will come later, like shown in the following movie!

The new kitchen ventilation standard prEN 16282 of the technical committee CEN/TC 156 is already valid!

“Stars do not fall from heaven, they are born.” Likewise new European standards. In some European countries associations, institutions and manufacturers can still not accept the fact of ​​a new kitchen ventilation standard valid throughout Europe – but it has already come in parts and has not fallen “from heaven”! Even in Switzerland, Luxembourg, Austria, the Netherlands, Germany and many other countries, the “happy future” has already been completed! Now it´s really urgently time that you will get to know about the new “family growth EN 16282” Eg at these seminars:

– REVEN SCHAKO EN16282 and Fire Protection Seminar Hannover

– REVEN SCHAKO EN16282 und Brandschutz Seminar am Bodensee Friedrichshafen 

– REVEN SCHAKO EN16282 and Fire Protection Seminar Bavaria

Induction “push pull” capture hoods smart kitchen ventilation 4.0

Candles are blown out and not “sucked out“ – OF COURSE is your reaction, right? But why are conventional kitchen ventilation systems then sucking only? Why is this not solved more intelligently? Here is our proposal for a smart kitchen ventilation:

The new REVEX® HEPA filter

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

“Filters meeting the HEPA standard have many applications, including use in medical facilities, automobiles, aircraft and homes. The filter must satisfy certain standards of efficiency. To qualify as HEPA by US government standards, an air filter must remove 99.97% of particles that have a size of 0.3 µm. The original HEPA filter was designed in the 1940s and was used in the Manhattan Project to prevent the spread of airborne radioactive contaminants. Over the decades filters have evolved to satisfy the higher and higher demands for air quality in various high technology industries, such as aerospace, pharmaceutical drug processing, hospitals, health care, nuclear fuels, nuclear power, and integrated circuit fabrication.”

Such HEPA filter should be used for application like the filtration of dry smoke particle at EDM applications. To use such HEPA filters in the exhaust of liquid coolants from machinery centers is not recommended. For such applications we recommend to use the special designed filter for liquid aerosols – the REVEX®-HEPA filter.

REVEX®-HEPA filter are designed for the removal of liquid mists, fogs and for wet super fine aerosols. The REVEX®-HEPA filter are self cleaning, which means that condensing mists and oils are released by gravity. Therefore the filter needs to be installed horizontal.

Technical data:

Initial-∆P [Pa]: 250 Pa, Max. temp. [°C]: 80°C, Filtermedia: glass fibre fleece, Prices and sizes same like the actual REVEN® H13 HEPA smoke filter. For installation and retrofit for all REVEN® X-CYCLONE® HEPA top filter covers.

REVEN® PROTECT Kitchen fire-extinguishing system for collecting hoods and extraction ceilings

Fire-extinguishing system for duct-mounting systems, collecting hoods and extraction ceilings. Reliably fights oil and grease fires in food production facilities and commercial kitchens.
