The Melink Intell-Hood controls are the industry standard for commercial kitchen ventilation systems. Mechanical engineers, foodservice consultants, energy service companies, and chain operators are specifying them on thousands of hoods for both new and existing facilities around the world.
Savings & Benefits
The Intelli-Hood controls reduce your exhaust and make-up fan speeds during idle, non-cooking conditions. This yields fan energy savings of up to 90% and conditioned air savings of up to 50%. The result is a typical payback of 1-3 years.
More than 8,000 Installations Worldwide
Realizing the huge potential for fan energy and conditioned air savings, Melink pioneered the demand ventilation system for use in various food service facilities more than 20 years ago. Since then, they have completed more than 8,000 installations in:
- K-12 Schools
- Colleges & Universities
- Government Buildings
- Military Facilities
- Corporate Dining
Melink pioneered demand ventilation controls for commercial kitchen hoods over 20 years ago, and has installed more than 8,000 systems worldwide over the years. Key advantages include:
- Optic Sensors allow a lower minimum speed for greater energy savings
- Optic Sensors ensure robust capture and containment of all smoke
- Plug and play cables eliminate installation problems
- Remote monitoring allows energy savings to be verified
- Intelligent algorithms provide automatic daily calibration
- Melink national network of trained technicians is best in industry
Simple To Install & Operate
Intelli-Hood controls are easily installed on new hoods and retrofitted on existing hoods. The Temperature and Optic Sensors get mounted inside the hood/duct, and the Keypad, Processor, and Variable-Speed Drives typically get mounted in an end-cabinet or on a kitchen wall.
To operate, the cook/chef simply presses the light and fan switch on the Keypad, and the system begins operating. When the cooking appliances are turned on, the fan speeds increase based on the exhaust air temperature. During actual cooking, the speeds increase to 100% until the smoke/vapor is removed.
