ABSTRACT

Coffee Break Training: Commercial Cooking: Upblast Exhaust Fan Assemblies   [open pdf - 306KB]

"Commercial cooking equipment that produces smoke or grease-laden vapors must have an adequate exhaust system to remove highly combustible vapor/air mixtures from the kitchen area. The illustration shows an upblast fan assembly connected to an exhaust duct. Upblast exhaust fans are popular due to their low cost and ease of installation. They commonly are installed in one- or two-story restaurants or locations close to property lines or other buildings where horizontal exhaust may not be permitted (See Coffee Break Training 2006-5). The fan housing typically is made of spun aluminum, and the motor and the belt drive are outside the airstream or may be in the center of the airstream as illustrated in the photograph."
