Vari-Flow Air Management System l Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation

Effectively monitor cooking operation for quick airflow adjustment

Heat sensors automatically reduce energy consumption by reducing fan speeds which decreases electrical, heating and cooling loads.

How To Buy
Product Features & Performance
Energy Savings Icon

Increased savings

Generates more electrical, heating and cooling savings by reducing airflow up to 50% or more during idle cooking periods

Temperature Icon

Five times quicker response

Hood-mounted temperature sensors responds up to five times faster than duct-mounted temperature sensors

Cost Effective Icon

Exceptional value

All-around cost-saver when upfront costs, maintenance and ongoing payback are calculated

Controls Icon

Enhanced room pressurization control

Controls the supply air unit by sensing static pressure in the space, independent of the exhaust fan speed, to ensure proper room pressurization at all times. Proportional tracking is also available

Sound Icon

Noise control

Decreasing fan speeds reduces kitchen ventilation system volume to improve customer and employee comfort

Maintenance Icon

Reduced maintenance

Less wear and tear on fan motors, belts and pulleys extends the lifespan of your fans, providing more time to reduce costs and realize return on investment, with typical payback in one to three years

Certifications Icon

Code compliant

International Mechanical Code (IMC) Compliant; meets code requirements to automatically start fans when cooking operations occur

Controls Icon

Intuitive interface

Keypad used to control fans, lights, manual override conditions and to identify system events

Adjustable Alternate Icon

100% override

Option to program a single-button increase of fan speed to 100% for a preset period of time

Efficient Icon


Achieves energy savings required by multiple energy and green building standards, including ASHRAE 90.1, ASHRAE 189.1, IECC 2015 and California Title 24
