Ducting:
The extractor can be used as a recirculation device or as a extraction
device, depending on your installation.
The hood is more effective when used in the extraction mode (ducted
to the outside). When the cooker hood is ducted to the outside,
charcoal filters are not required. The ducting used must be 150 mm
(6 Inches), rigid circular pipe and must be manufactured from fire
retardant material, produced to BS.476 or DIN 4102-B1.
Wherever possible utilise rigid circular pipe which has a smooth
interior, rather than the expanding concertina type ducting. The
maximum length of the ducting without performance being affected is
as follows:
• 4 metres with 1 x 90° bend.
• 3 metres with 2 x 90° bends.
• 2 metres with 3 x 90° bends.
Longer ducting can be used but the performance of the extractor will
be reduced.
Please note ducting components and ducting kits are optional
accessories and have to be ordered, they are not automatically
supplied with the chimney hood. Use of ducting less than 150mm in
diameter will affect performance and increase the noise produced by
the extractor.
18
Re-circulation:
An internal air vent is required, as shown below. This ensures that the
air is placed back in the kitchen after it has been filtered
fig. 18
Fit the charcoal filters to the body of the motor as shown in the
maintenance section of the manual.
Extraction:
The extractor is provided with a non-return butterfly valve which
should be fitted over the vent outlet before the ducting is fitted. This
prevents cold air being blown into the room from outside.
Securing the duct to the outlet:
Note that the duct pipe should be secured and sealed to the vent
outlet pipe / valve using appropriate ducting tape or a securing clamp.
19
Adjusting the position
of the decorative
cover panel:
The decorative panel can be finalised
by moving the positions of the cover
hinges, as shown below. Use a suitable
allen key or small hex driver (3mm) to
slacken the cover adjusting screws
before sliding the cover into the correct
position. When done, re-tighten the
fixing screws.
