Cooking is a great pleasure, but what about the odours ans smoke produced by cooking?

The solutions used in kitchens are the suction hood to draw the air out of the room, or the filtering hood.

The suction hood draws out of the kitchen warm air during winter and cool air during summer, increasing the heating and air conditioning costs.

Moreover, the effectiveness of the filtering hood has never been very good and maintenance costs are higher as carbon filters need to be replaced regularly. This system doesn't eliminate all odours effectively.

Now all this is over thanks to GALVAMET and the Plasmafilter technology!


What is Plasma?
Plasma is an ionized gas consisting of consisting of an electrically neutral blend of electrons and ions.

How is Plasma produced?
It is produced by giving the molecules of a gas, at a given pressure, sufficient thermal energy to dissociate the molecules and ionize the atoms and molecules of the gas itself.


How is Plasma filter working in a cooker hood?

At first, the grease present in the cooking fumes is captured by the anti-grease filters, the filtered air then enters the Plasma filter and is oxidized by "cold combustion"

Molecules, like germs and odors, are decomposed at the molecular stage. Unburned compounds are captured from the activated charcoal downstream. At the same time, activated charcoal acts as a catalyst and terminates the oxidation process.

At the output of activated charcoal, there are no reactive components, but only: Oxygen (O2), Carbon dioxide (CO2) and water vapor (H2O) = PURE AIR

The Plasma filter only uses a few watts of electricity and does not require maintenance, in fact the activated charcoal is regenerated by the Plasma at each use.


How is odor reduction measured?
The International Electrotechnical Commission IEC task, based in Geneva, is to define the safety standards for member countries, including all industrially developed nations.
The countries, like ours, which are part of the European Economic Community, belong to CENELEC (Comité Européen de Normalization Electrotechnique) whose main purpose is to have the IEC international standards adopted by the member countries or to agree on common amendments.
The representative body of our country, at the international headquarters of IEC and CENELEC, is the Italian Electrotechnical Committee CEI which has been entrusted with the institutional task of a regulatory body.
The main purpose of the CEI standards is to achieve standardization, normalization of practices in such a way that the performance of the equipment put on the market can be correctly compared to each other.
The CEI EN 61591 standard is the reference of methods for measuring the performance of cooker hoods for domestic use.
Tested according to this standard, Galvamet cooker hoods with Plasma filter achieve an efficiency in odors reduction by 95%.

Why choose a Plasma cooker hood?
- For the aesthetic advantage, there are no longer chimneys to duct the air out.
- Saving of installation costs, masonry work for the air expulsion conduit will no longer be required.
- Significant savings in energy costs, a duct out hood expels through the pipes not only the odor, but also the warm air in winter and the cool one in summer, this is increasing the costs of heating and air conditioning in a considerable way. The recirculation cooker hood with Plasma, on the other hand, purifies the intake air then redirected into the kitchen, thus keeping an even indoor temperature.
- No maintenance: compared to a normal filtering hood with active charcoal filters, the Plasma cooker hood does not require maintenance or regular replacement of the anti-odor filters.
