Determining the right amount of exhaust air for commercial kitchens according to EN 16282 as of February 2018 with the RECOMAX 2018 software
With the calculation method according to EN 16282, published in January 2018, our design software RECOMAX 2018 was again updated. With the latest version of EN 16282, the simultaneity factor (GF) φ may no longer be used for the entire room or kitchen as before, but must be defined separately for each cooking block! Furthermore, the user is supported by the fact that non-plausible entries in the software are prevented, so only values> 0.5 are allowed. Table A.4 has been omitted to determine the amount of air for dishwashers and has been simplified by Table A.3 – “Reference values for the air flow rates in dishwashers”.
Furthermore, in the new RECOMAX 2018 software, the reference values for ancillary rooms can now also be calculated automatically and, if necessary, assigned to the exhaust system. The free download of the RECOMAX 2018 software can be found here: http://www.reven.de/index.php?id=6&L=0
We are also happy to run a 60-minute webinar on the software for you. If you have any interests, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
