Professional hygiene treatment for operational safety and employee protection

Polluted exhaust air systems are not only unhygienic, but also pose a significant risk of fire and explosion. In kitchens, the air is polluted by odors, grease components and gaseous combustion products. This grease contamination in the exhaust air lines creates a significant fire risk if not properly cleaned.

High requirements for hygiene

Die Aufgabe einer RLT-Anlage in Küchen ist es, eine Kontamination von Lebensmitteln bei der Zubereitung, Lagerung und Verteilung durch die zuströmende Luft zu verhindern. Zudem solle Geruchs-, Schad- und andere gasförmige Stoffe ohne Umwege über die Abluft abtransportiert werden.

Der Betreiber der Lüftungsanlagen von Küchen hat dafür zu sorgen, dass alle relevanten Bauteile sich in einem funktionsfähigen sowie technisch und hygienisch einwandfreien Zustand befinden. Die sachgemäße Reinigung insbesondere von Aerosolabscheidern, Küchenlüftungshauben, Küchenlüftungsdecken, Abluftmotoren und Abluftleitungen wird deshalb von den Berufsgenossenschaften, vom Gesetzgeber und den Versicherungen als Stand der Technik gefordert. Um Küchenabluftanlagen bis zum Fortluftauslass optimal zu reinigen, ist spezielles Know-how erforderlich. Zudem ist eine Instandhaltungsplanung ist zu erstellen, Wartungs- und Inspektionsintervalle sind festzulegen und zu dokumentieren.
