Air Boss Kitchen Exhaust System (KES)

Remove grease, oil, smoke, and cooking odors with efficient kitchen ventilation

Kitchen exhaust contains grease, smoke, and odors that reduce air quality. Air filters in kitchen ventilation systems can give your kitchen clean and safe air. With a kitchen exhaust system (KES), everyone is happy. You and your employees will have a safe working environment, your kitchen will pass EPA and local inspection, and odors won’t bother your neighbors. The Air Boss KES is a multifaceted, self-contained filtration unit that ensures maximum effectiveness with an electrostatic precipitator and optional media and odor-controlling carbon filters.

Product Overview

The electrostatic precipitator electrically charges particles, then collects them on polarized plates. The exhausted air, now filtered of grease, smoke, and oil particles, passes through a carbon filter to reduce odors. The Air Boss system keeps air compliant with EPA, state, and local air quality laws. Keep your space clean and fresh with a KES.
