The February Press Round Up
Read all about the latest in Filta Environmental news in our February press round up which features the launch of a new service, a real-life case study with input from both the end-user and distributor and the arrival of a new recruit – all of which featured in leading industry-related press. Thanks to the publications who covered our news and now lets jump in!
Catering Insight – Filta Unveils Automated Extraction Cleaning System
The latest addition to the Filta service offering, FiltaVent was unveiled to the industry press at the end of 2019 in Catering Insight. The FiltaVent system is an automated extract duct cleaning system designed to constantly control the build-up of grease in kitchen ductwork and help operators meet the recently updated fire risk management standards for commercial kitchens, TR19.
The system itself works by regularly spraying biological enzymes directly into the kitchen ventilation system through specially designed and installed nozzles. Unlike manual duct-cleaning services, the enzymes can target all corners and inaccessible areas of the ductwork which are often missed or avoided.
The FiltaVent official service video, above, also premiered on the Foodservice Equipment Journal: FEJ TV. In the video McDonald’s franchisees explain how the system has benefited their kitchen operations.
Catering Insight – Dentons and Filta Team Up to De-FOG Franco Manca
Catering distributor, Dentons, teamed up with us to install a series of our top performing GreaseMaster grease recovery units for the sourdough pizza chain, Franco Manca.
The Franco Manca case study details that as Franco Manca started to expand outside of London, we helped them to fit grease management systems at the restaurants brand new sites across Oxford, Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester, Exeter and Edinburgh.
Peter Nunn, director of Dentons said:
“Having worked with Filta on previous projects, both large and small, I had no hesitation in recommending their solution. The GreaseMaster is simple to maintain, yet a robust unit that we can install with ease for our customers. A big advantage is the simplicity of the operation process, a brief demonstration or handover is all that is really needed to get them up and running”.
Head of openings and maintenance at Franco Manca, Bruno Leal explained:
Good practice aside, we know first-hand the repercussions of drain blockages on a business. Only last year, a neighbouring catering operation with no grease management system in place caused the manholes to overflow and we had to close the kitchen. The GreaseMaster is so easy to manage. With a side box for solid waste, staff can visibly see the grease collecting in the FOG container and any water is automatically taken away from the business”.
