I need a Dayton GREASE Exhaust fan, variable speed, for above my fryer/cooking area in my small restaurant kitchen.
Current one,made by Dayton, is too powerful (and not variable speed) and need to replace. What additional information is needed to get correct fan or can you give me item #'s of suggested fans?
I need to know the size of the hood, also your hood has to have a filters and grease trap. I never use a variable speed exhaust fan for a kitchen hood, because if you turn down to much the speed, then you are not pulling out air and grease. We calculate the flow air with the hood size, and that is the way should work. If your exhaust fan its too big, may be its not the right for your hood. Local and national codes will not allow to operate the hood with out the minimum air flow, its dangerous, also many codes, depend where you are, require make up air in the kitchen, in case of fire on your fryer the exhaust fan has to be operate with the full speed so your fire suppressor heat-fuse will sense the fire, open and knock the fire, keep flame up. Ask your local fire marshal before. If this is a residential hood you don't need it.
