Ecology Unit

Here at Sirius, we specialise in creating bespoke integrated solutions. We don’t want to just get rid of odour, or just remove grease. We want to provide you with comprehensive solutions that can deal with all of your problems in one fell swoop. With our Ecology Unit, we can offer just that. Unrivalled filtration of grease, smoke and odour – enhanced by combining the ESP and UV – plus cleaner ducts and full compliance with all relevant guidelines and legislation. 


Integrated Emission Control

ESP and UV are made for each other. This bespoke integrated solution achieves the most effective filtration of grease, smoke and odours, creating a healthy and productive workplace. Our ESP and UV systems have been developed alongside each other to offer products that not only complement but enhance the other’s performance. Their modular design means that they can be arranged in virtually any configuration to accommodate any airflow and cooking process, which will contribute to cleaner ducts and a reduced fire risk.

Electrostatic precipitation consists of four distinct stages. Firstly, the grease and smoke particles in the air stream are positively charged by the central cathode needles. The charged particles then migrate towards the cylindrical anode collection tubes, where they settle and form a film. The final stage of this process is removal of the film. Here at Sirius, we use a high-efficiency vapour blast cabinet to remove all traces of grease and dirt from the collecting tubes.

The UV unit then steps in and converts the oxygen in the ambient air into ozone. This highly unstable compound is a natural air cleaner, and will oxidise contaminants and allergens on contact, thereby eliminating the smell. The UV light also causes the bonds within the complex odour molecules to break down, transforming them into smaller, harmless compounds.

 Key Facts:

  • Complete removal of grease, smoke and odour
  • Fully compliant with all relevant guidelines and legislation
  • Contributes to cleaner ducts, not only saving money and hassle by reducing the number of duct cleans required, but reducing the fire hazard associated with accumulated grease
  • Low-maintenance, reliable and cost-effective
  • The most environmentally-friendly way of reducing air pollution from kitchen extract systems
  • Almost zero waste to landfill
