Exhaust-Only & Compensating Models

Canopy style, Type I, exhaust ventilator utilizing high velocity slot type grease extraction with automatic internal water wash system and integrated dwell and rinse cycles. The SCA models are recommended for single or double width applications, island or wall mounted, over all types of cooking equipment.

  • ETL Listed, ETL Listed to Canadian safety standards, ETL Sanitation Listed and built in accordance with NFPA 96.
  • Constructed of 18 gauge, type 304 stainless steel, #4 polish. All exposed joints and seams are continuously welded, liquid-tight.
  • Overall size is indicated on plans.
  • Grease extraction is accomplished by a series of baffles and turns creating increased velocity, causing grease particles to be thrown centrifugally from the airstream. Removable lower cartridge allows access to the hot water manifold.
  • Positive closing stainless steel fire damper mounted on 3/8" rod assisted by a fully enclosed spring-loaded mechanism activated by a UL approved fusible link rated at 286F. Access to fusible link and upper exhaust plenum area provided by means of removable access doors not to exceed 40" in length.
  • Exhaust duct collars are 8" high with a 1" flange. Duct sizes, CFM and static pressure requirements are shown on plans.
  • Automatic internal water wash system is designed to provide a secondary protection in the event of a fire by means of a 245F thermostat located at the duct collar which shuts off the fans and activates the water wash sequence to prevent flame spread.
  • Incandescent light fixtures and globes are installed and prewired to a junction box. Lamps to be provided by others.




Incorporating one of the following make-up air options, the Model SCA is a compensating hood with integrated make-up air provided through supply collars with volume and fire dampers located at the top of the hood.

  • FP OPTION: Make-up air is discharged through full length stainless steel perforated panels on the face of the hood.
  • IS OPTION: Make-up air is discharged into the hood capture area through a series of diffuser plates and directed upward toward the air inlet of the high velocity grease extraction chamber.
  • FP-SL OPTION: Make-up air is discharged at a low velocity through full length removable stainless steel perforated panels which are angled to provide increased area and low discharge velocity.


An electrically controlled panel is provided as part of the hood system to operate the internal cleaning system. The control panel is completely assembled and prewired by the manufacturer, ready for mechanical and electrical connections. The hot water manifold is sized as shown on the plans. Control panel is ETL Listed.

Two options for the remote manifold and controls are available. The AM-2 Panel offers simple controls of the self cleaning operation while the SCS Panel includes advanced controls via a touch screen interface.
