Avtec’s new EcoAzur family of Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation (DCKV) systems maximizes energy savings during non-peak cooking times. EcoAzur DCKV, with state-of-the-art heat and optic sensors, allows commercial foodservice equipment operators to automatically and safely lower the level of air exhausted. The EcoAzur saves energy usage on the exhaust fans themselves, with the added benefit of limiting the loss of conditioned air within the kitchen.
Most DCKV systems rely on heat from commercial foodservice equipment to control the rate of exhaust, but do not address low-heat smoke or vapor which can fill a kitchen with smoke before the heat can be detected by the heat sensors. Because of this limitation, heat-only commercial kitchen systems cannot idle the fan speed as low in volume and still ensure safety standards. With EcoAzur’s optic and heat sensors, the rates of exhaust can go as low as 30% of full speed, providing the highest energy savings possible.
EcoAzur’s optics are easy to operate and maintain with their spray-down durability. Our industry-exclusive option, EcoAzur Lite, offers a heat-only solution with optic sensors as an additional upgrade after purchase and installation. EcoAzur Plus allows the addition of our modulating dampers to control air volume on ventilation hoods that are designed with a common fan, so energy is saved by each hood, not just the fan.
