Coil filtration

How do coil filters work?

Coil filters work to filter out oil and grease and stop them entering into the extraction system. They capture up to 95% of grease and oil particles – as compared to just 20-40% achieved by traditional baffle filters.

There are four stages to the operation:

Stage 1 – Oil vapours condense on the large surface area of the filter coils as heat is transferred from the air.

Stage 2 – As the air finds its way through the twisted shapes of the coils, it is forced into a series of tiny vortices. Droplets of oil and grease are spun out and continue to travel at a tangent.

Stage 3 – The travelling oil and grease particles then hit another point on the surface of the filter coils. They become trapped in the viscous oil coating on the filter surface.

Stage 4 – As more and more particles land on the surface, they form droplets and settle by gravity into a filter cup. The waste oil and grease can then be collected for recycling.
