What is a pollution control unit?

Posted on Feb 22, 2017

With an increased attention to pollutants, many more people are keeping the environment in mind on a day-to-day basis. According to some reports, more than half of humanity is expected to live in cities by 2050. The changes pose challenges to today’s population, including keeping the air clean.

So, what is the best way to do that? There are many ways, such as planting trees, walking or biking to work, or recycling. Another way is the use of pollution control units, or PCUs.

PCUs are part of the kitchen exhaust system, and help incorporate pollution control into every-day life.

PCUs are constructed specifically to meet kitchen exhaust duct standards, and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation. The units help removed grease particles and abatement of smoke from the air stream of kitchen exhaust systems. Some units can also reduce odors.

However, like regular kitchen exhaust systems, these units need to be cleaned on a regular basis. Build up can cause health or mechanical problems, and proper maintenance helps prolong the life of both the kitchen exhaust system and the PCU.
