Accurex’s New Grease Trapper Pollution Control Unit Meets UL-1978 Standard

Accurex’s new Grease Trapper Pollution Control Unit removes grease, smoke and odors from kitchen exhaust and has been tested and listed to the UL-1978 standard for factory-built grease ducts. The Grease Trapper uses a three-stage mechanical filter arrangement to remove grease and smoke particles from the exhaust air at an economical first cost. For ease of maintenance, independent pressure switches signal when any of the three filter stages need replacing. Activated-carbon panels remove odor molecules prior to discharging the air, reducing the impact of kitchen exhaust to the surrounding areas. Built in accordance with NFPA 96, the Grease Trapper has performance capacities up to 12,000 cfm, and MERV filters ensure a minimum overall particulate removal efficiency of 95%.

The Story Of A Brick Oven Built By A Carpenter

In 1989, challenged with the task of finding a wood-fired stone hearth oven or “brick oven” that could withstand the intense rigors of the restaurant world, Keith Carpenter set out for perfection. Inspired to create a better wood-fired oven, Carpenter pitched some ideas to Harry Hegarty, an experienced builder of large-scale, high-temperature ceramic incinerators. This meeting marked the beginning of an integral partnership, and by 1990, Wood Stone was born. Throughout the years, the mission of Wood Stone has been steadfast. Committed to quality, innovation and customer satisfaction, Wood Stone is here for you providing helpful information during the design phase and technical support throughout your relationship with our company and our products. It’s been an amazing 25 years, and now with our new partners, Henny Penny, we are excited for the adventures ahead.
