WVU-31CT

Countertop Universal Ventless Hood

Wells Counter Top Universal Hoods are Certified Type-1 compliant, UL710B approved recirculating hood system and features a completely self-contained air filtration system. The WVU-31CT comes pre-plumbed for an external mounted fire suppression system (by others). 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 can mix and match various electric cooking equipment under the hood such as fryers, ovens, griddles, steamers and more – providing greater flexibility and through-put.
