Development of REVEN induction technology – patent published


The new and further updated REVEN induction system (push pull system) for capture hoods and ventilated ceilings

Last week the further developed and improved REVEN induction technology for extraction hoods was confirmed and published without opposition as a new patent from the European and the US American patent office. In most industrial sectors a continuous development of products and technical solutions is an absolute prerequisite. Unfortunately, the commercial kitchen ventilation is a special case because, in that branch a replacement of traditional fluorescent light tubes to LED tubes is celebrated as innovative milestones in that industry. The drive for innovation is minimal and even organizations in that industries, such as HKI are no support, quite the opposite in terms of innovation. In a recent press release of the HKI is the following published: “…The assertion that the induction process is a new process is not correct, because it is already implemented for decades in Germany and has long been in kitchens …“

Sure properly, the induction system is not a new system, very well but a system that has been studied extensively and with the help of latest technologies such as the CFD analysis (computational fluid dynamics) and Aerosol particle analyzer it have been improved heavily. That very similar and intensive efforts have been made to improve the technology significantly, just as it is in the automotive industry for over 100 years usage, with correspondingly extremely impressive results and technologies, please refer to the attached picture!

Sure such analyses takes time, something devours considerable sums in research and development, but then also leads to serious improvements! In a report of the North German Agricultural Advisory in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern the further developed by Reven induction technology was certify that:

“By blowing in untempered air at lower ambient temperatures, the dew point in the mixed air area is achieved and condensation occurs. Condensation always means binding of odorants from the air, as an olfactometry analyze of the exhaust air in the sample bag proved.”

Enjoying these positive characteristics of such an advanced induction technology is only possible if the entire system „capture hood“ is really understood and explored, from the aerosol separator, through to thermal and induction air flow. Other manufacturers in this field, make just use of a simple thermal imaging, then call this CFD analysis and derive results from pseudo-scientific nature. This may then be like their products a cost effective solution and approach, a real leap in technology is something like this not and certainly for such a system the HKI press release would fit perfectly because such an approach and system is nothing new at all.
