Condensate Canopies / Steam Hoods
Kitchens, as a rule are areas where moisture is part of the working day. Just cooking food releases moisture into the environment making the air more humid. When you introduce ware washing solutions into a catering environment the moisture levels increase dramatically, and in a kitchen that’s not always good for the food or the staff.
Condensate canopies (also known as steam hoods) are designed to manage and expel excess moisture produced by high steam output equipment like dishwashers, combination ovens and atmospheric steamers. Fitted above equipment, these canopies allow steam laden air to be safely captured.
They are fitted with a sloped condensation plate which, on contact with steam turns it into water and then directs it into a drain off, keeping it out of the air and reducing overall environmental humidity.
The result is less humidity, drier surfaces and a safer and
more comfortable working environmen
