An ounce of prevention toward preventing a pound of grease from igniting!

Grease Deposition Sensors (KGS) for commercial kitchens, are signaling device that monitors the grease deposition levels in all monitored ductwork. Once the level of grease exceeds the programmed threshold, an alarm is displayed on the system console, alerting the operator that the ductwork needs to be
cleaned. Optionally, a signal can be sent to the Building Management System (BMS) via a dry contact closure. This system also gives an indication whether the cleaning was done satisfactorily.

An innovative signaling device that monitors the ductwork grease deposition levels

  • Monitors the grease deposition levels in all ductwork
  • Mitigates hygiene and fire safety concerns
  • Allows operator to clean ductwork when required by grease deposition levels, not unnecessarily by schedule
  • Compatible with existing exhaust ductwork
  • Optical grease sensing device not affected by ambient light
  • Ten grease sensors per system (extendable)
  • Operates as a “stand alone” system
  • Optional signal sent to Building Management System (BMS) via “volt free” contact closure
  • Authorized service agents can connect to system via laptop or PDA
  • Grease sensor and reflector assemblies are UL1978 listed. Control panels are ETL listed.

Grease Deposition Sensors or Duct Safety System (KGS) is a signaling device that monitors the grease deposition levels in all ductwork. Once the level of grease exceeds the NFPA-96 threshold or a local regulation requirement, an alarm is displayed on the user interface or a signal is sent to the Building Management System (BMS) via a “volt free” contact closure. The operator is then alerted that the ductwork needs to be cleaned. Hence, fire safety and hygiene concerns are mitigated.

The system is based on the use of Grease Sensors, installed along the ductwork and inside the exhaust plenums of exhaust hoods which cover the heaviest cooking appliances. The innovative optical system which equips the sensors is able to determine the grease deposition level on the surface of the ductwork.

As soon as this level exceeds the system threshold, the user interface displays a visual alarm and shows which grease sensor(s) is concerned. Hence, it allows the operator to execute the cleaning operations when it is really needed and not unnecessarily by schedule. Depending on the strategy applied before the installation of a KGS system (cleaning operations too frequent or not frequent enough), the kitchen manager benefits from money savings or from a
total safe activity with minimum maintenance costs.
