Equipment for commercial kitchens - Components for ventilation in commercial kitchens - Part 9: Capture and containment performance of extraction systems - Test methods
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
|ICS Code (Other kitchen equipment):||97.040.99|
This European Standard specifies the requirements for the test methods for the capture and containment performance of extraction systems in commercial kitchens, including the technical safety, ergonomic and hygienic features.
This European Standard is applicable to ventilation systems in commercial kitchens, associated areas and other installations processing foodstuffs intended for commercial use. Kitchens and associated areas are special rooms in which meals are prepared, and where tableware and equipment is washed and cleaned and food is stored.
This European Standard is not applicable to kitchen ventilation systems that are used in domestic kitchens.
Unless otherwise specified, the requirements of this standard shall be checked by way of inspection and/or measurement.
NOTE Please note the possible existence of additional or alternative local national regulations on installation, appliance requirements and inspection, maintenance and operation.
The test method in accordance with this standard describes flow visualization techniques that are used to determine the threshold of capture and containment for non-cooking and specified heavy cooking conditions. The threshold of capture and containment can be used to estimate minimum flow rates for hood/appliance systems.
This European standard does not address safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
