WVU-26

26″ Universal Ventless Hood

Wells Universal hoods are Certified Type-1 compliant, UL710B approved recirculation hood systems and feature completely self-contained air filtration and fire-suppression systems. They do not require venting outside making it possible to cook in non-traditional locations or when traditional Type-1 hoods and duct-work are impractical, restricted or too expensive. Operators may use electric cooking equipment under the hood, including a fryer, griddle, hot plate and more – providing greater flexibility and through-put.

Description

Fire Protection Completely self contained ANSUL R-102 system includes ANSUL tank, nitrogen cartridge, ANSUL sopanifier, piping, heat sensors, ANSUL drops, nozzles, and movable manual pull station. Manual pull can be relocated to the egress position or an additional station can be added by an authorized ANSUL representative. Fire protection system meets NFPA 96 Chapter 13. Fire protection system must be charged and certified by ANSUL Authorized distributor after installation and before first use (operator responsibility).

All filters are easily removable with out tools. Air flow sensors continually monitor air flow optimizing performance and grease removal while an interlock system will not allow cooking appliances to function if filters are missing, clogged or in the event of a fire.

Cooking Appliances Only electrically heated appliances are acceptable for installation. Cooking equipment is optional from Wells or other manufacturers. Appliances must be installed as per manufacturers instructions and controlled thru the hood equipment shut-off interface through a customer supplied contractor which will disable cooking equipment in the event of fire or hood malfunction. For size, temperature and KW limits see back page or manual.
