Heating and Ventilating


Britannia's in the army now

A military training school has been refitted by Britannia Kitchen Ventilation to better equip military chefs wanting to feed the UK armed forces on operations, exercises and in barracks.
The two storey Defence Food Services school in Winchester, was originally an MOD computer centre, but has been redeveloped to provide 14 large commercial kitchens, requiring a total of 84 ventilation canopies.

Britannia installed all the equipment in under four months in DFSS which is one of the largest UV kitchen ventilation projects in the world.

Britannia were contracted through catering facilities specialist Portable Kitchens Limited (PKL)

Britannia incorporated Ultrastream UV filtration which provides secondary grease and odour removal, reducing the whole life costs through lower maintenance and also reducing the fire risk. The UV filtration also allowed the use of a heat recovery system by protecting the heat exchangers from grease contamination.

The UV lamps located within each canopy break down organic matter within the grease and odours by a combination of photolysis and ozonolysis and the system works automatically when the extract plant is switched on.

The existing roof structure would not support the weight of large ventilation canopies, and so Britannia designed and installed a ground-supported framework which saw all the canopies stand on their own legs. This removed the need to reinforce the fragile roof structure.
