Washable Grease Filter
There are two types of air filtration in a cooker hood.
The first one is the grease filter, which is always present at the entrance to the hood.
Its purpose is to protect the interior of the product, filtering the heaviest grease particles from the air.
These filters can be of different types of material: synthetic (to be replaced cyclically), aluminum (washable) or aluminum filter grill known as washable grease filter, which can be easily be removed and washed either by hand with a liquid soap or in the dishwasher.
The second type of filter, the odour filter also known as carbon filter, is present only in recycling version hoods.
Their purpose is to cleanse the air captured by the cooker hood.
The traditional solution consists of a suitably shaped plastic container containing granules of active carbon.
This special carbon is able to capture and store grease, humidity and odours.
These filters, due to the active carbon, must be replaced every 3-4 months.
For the odour filter, Turboair offers a technologically innovative alternative: Long Life Washable Carbon Filter.
This guarantees high efficiency combined with a very long life cycle.
It does not need to be replaced frequently since it can be ‘’regenerated’’ with a normal wash in the dishwasher and drying in the oven for ten minutes at 100℃.
If this process is carried out, the Long Life Washable Carbon Filter guarantees extremely efficient service for up to 3 years.
Applicable only on Hoods models IRIS IX 60 | NORMA H6 IX |IXGL 50| ZOE ISL IX A 90
Choosing the Type
All Kitchen Hood models are designed to work both in the duct-out type, where air is captured and expelled to the outside, or the recycling type, where air is captured, purified though filters, and sent back into the kitchen environment.
