Proximity (Backshelf) Hoods The perfect solution for low ceilings, and light- and medium-duty cooking applications, the proximity hood mounts close to the cooking equipment allowing for lower exhaust rates and smaller hoods. Our proximity hoods have ﬁve dimensions of adjustment and have an optional plate shelf and/or pass-over enclosure.
Auto-Cleaning Hoods The Grease Grabber H2O provides industry-leading grease extraction capabilities with an innovative auto-cleaning system. It is a highly efficient, closed system that combines time-saving convenience with dramatic cost reductions related to labor, water, and energy use. Filters do not need to be removed and cleaned by hand. The system sends hot water mixed with detergent to spray nozzles aligned along the filter banks and plenum, and later purges it and rinses with fresh hot water. This reduces the need to heat a steady, one-way flow of water, Airﬂow pattern through Grease Grabber H2O reducing utility costs.

Fire Suppression Systems The ﬁrst line of defense against ﬁre in a commercial kitchen is the hood ﬁre protection system. Accurex has a variety of factory prepiped ﬁre protection systems available.
Wet Chemical The Ansul® R-102™ and Amerex® KP™ wet chemical ﬁre suppression systems are automatic, pre-engineered systems, designed to protect ventilating equipment including hoods, ducts, plenums, ﬁlters, and cooking equipment. Once activated, the system discharges wet chemical through all nozzles simultaneously.
Amerex® Zone Defense™ and Ansul R-102 Overlapping Appliance Protection offers full ﬂood ﬁre protection that allows ﬂexibility in equipment placement, which can signiﬁcantly reduce the cost of ﬁeld changes in the future.
Dual Agent The Ansul® PIRANHA® restaurant wet agent ﬁre suppression system is a dual-agent, pre-engineered automatic ﬁre extinguishing system, designed to protect ventilating equipment including hoods, ducts, plenums, ﬁlters, and the cooking equipment. Once activated, the system discharges wet chemical followed by water through all nozzles.
 Utility Distribution Systems Accurex’s® Utility Distribution Systems (UDS) provides ﬂexible, convenient and safe utility connections for commercial cooking operations while saving installation time in the ﬁeld. Factory-built systems offer a cost effective way to replace contractor built utilities in walls which require time and energy to be spent coordinating with various trades and allow for future expansion or relocation of appliances without expensive modiﬁcations.
The Accurex UDS provides a single point of connection for gas, electricity, water and optional utilities. The stainless steel exterior is easy to clean and safely conceals all wiring. Utility distribution systems are available in wall and island styles and can be manufactured in incremental lengths, expandable to accommodate virtually any cooking line-up.
Model Designation Guide - Utility Distribution Systems The Model Number Code is designed to completely identify the unit. The correct code letters must be speciﬁed to designate the conﬁgurations and size.
Accurex understands the importance of managing the various relationships between kitchen systems to ensure the best comfort, health and energy efﬁciency for your customers and employees. It is because we understand, that we provide engineered controls with many options to match your needs.
Variable Volume Accurex saves more energy with industry leading turndown capabilities, high efﬁciency Vari-Green® motors and the quick response of the Vari-Flow controls.
Energy efﬁcient kitchen ventilation systems are essential in reducing the operating costs associated with foodservice operations today.
A typical kitchen system will be designed for peak exhaust needs and operating at the exhaust airﬂow rate at all times. The reality is the cooking operation may only demand peak exhaust rates occasionally throughout the day.
Variable volume systems are a cost effective way to reduce energy consumption and operating costs by automatically decreasing the airﬂow based on demand from the cooking operation. Accurex offers two systems to match your operation with typical payback in 1-3 years. State rebates available in many locations.
Vari-Flow Air Management System The Accurex Vari-Flow Air Management System is our most economical variable volume system while providing top energy savings. This system senses the heat output from the cooking operation to effectively modulate the airﬂow and offers exceptional turndown and quick response.
The keypad with digital display or the integrated touchscreen, allows for increased ﬂexibility in managing your kitchen environment and maximize savings. Vari-Flow also integrates easily with any building management system.
Melink® Intelli-Hood® System The Melink Intelli-Hood uses both heat sensors and optic sensors to monitor the cooking operation and modulate the airﬂow. The optic sensors provide additional control, especially in large cooking batteries containing steamers, kettles and other similar appliances that produce a large quantity of smoke or steam.
 Temperature Interlock The temperature interlock is designed to automatically start the kitchen hood exhaust fans and keep them running while heat is being generated from the cooking appliances. The interlock will override the switch and start the fans once heat is detected in the event an operator fails to turn on the fans manually—ensuring safety and code compliance. These systems are available as a stand-alone control or as an integrated option in our other pre-engineered controls.
Digital Temperature Interlock Digital temperature interlock includes a micro controller with LED display that can be remote mounted. This option provides easy access and accurate control when making seasonal adjustments to the temperature setting, eliminating the need to access the hood top.
Fan Control Centers The fan control center is a single source for managing all your kitchen ventilation products: fans, make-up air, hoods, ﬁre system interlock, lighting and more.
Pre-wired to your speciﬁcations and only minimal ﬁeld wiring is needed, making installation easy.
XFCC Accurex’s Kitchen Fan Control Center, Model XFCC, is designed to control the exhaust fans, supply fans and lights for the kitchen ventilation system. The XFCC has numerous options and can be interlocked with the ﬁre suppression system.
With the increasing size of the urban landscape, the focus on clean air and multi-use buildings, restaurant odor and grease control play an increasingly important role in commercial kitchen exhaust systems.
No one wants their apartment or hotel room smelling like the restaurant below or their windows smeared from greasy kitchen exhaust air. In addition, restaurants on the ground ﬂoor of a high rise building need a cost effective way to discharge closer to ground level to prevent having to run duct work for many stories.
Accurex’s Grease Grabber™ Triple Play and Power Play pollution control units remove smoke, grease and odor from your kitchen exhaust systems.
Triple Play The Grease Grabber™ Triple Play pollution control unit uses a three-stage ﬁltration system including activated carbon panels to remove smoke, grease and odor from the exhaust airstream. A monitoring system tells you when you need to replace the ﬁlters.
Additional information: Accurex Grease Grabber™ Pollution Control Units Power Play The Grease Grabber™ Power Play is a selfcleaning electrostatic precipitator that uses electrically charged panels to trap and collect grease. Mechanical ﬁlters including activated carbon panels remove any remaining grease and odor. The wash cycle is preprogrammed to wash at set intervals to take even more work out of system maintenance.

Fans for Grease Applications The Centrifugal Roof Upblast, Sidewall Exhaust, Inline and Utility Set fans include both direct and belt driven fans with backward inclined centrifugal wheels. The motors on the fans are out of the airstream, preventing grease buildup. These fans are suitable for kitchen grease exhaust applications.
XRUB, XRUD - Roof Mounted XSEB, XSED - Sidewall Mounted These spun aluminum fans are speciﬁcally designed for roof mounted (XRUB/ XRUD) or sidewall mounted (XSEB/XSED) applications. Grease-laden exhaust is discharged directly upward, away from the roof surface or discharged out and away from building walls. The fans feature a one-piece windband continuously welded to the curb cap and double-studded isolators for true vibration isolation.
