The Kaire Factor

The Kaire Factor

Camfil’s Kaire® Unit has been named AIRAH 2021 Product of the Year.

This Australian designed and manufactured multi-staged, combination filtration system was designed to control light to heavy kitchen exhaust emissions (smoke, grease and cooking odours) for all types of commercial cooking applications.

Kaire® Unit incorporates three stages of particulate filtration using custom designed mechanical filters to deliver effective filtration of kitchen exhaust emissions with increasing efficiency through each stage at a minimal cost. A final gaseous filtration stage uses activated carbon media to remove odours.

With restricted space in buildings, it is desired to horizontally discharge kitchen exhaust instead of vertically above the roof line. Horizontally discharged kitchen effluent requires an engineered solution to remove particulates and odour, as per Australian Standards (NCC, AS 1668.1:2012 and AS 1668.2:2012). The Kaire® unit achieves this with staged particulate filters and activated carbon media.
