ELX Series Ventilator utilizes physics and geometry to achieve the industry’s lowest air volumes.
Gaylord’s new ELX Series Ventilator utilizes proven laws of physics and geometry to greatly improve air management. It achieves the lowest air volumes by taking advantage of the thermal plume that rises naturally from the cooking process. Plus, our technology makes the ELX Series quieter than any other hood in the industry. And, a quieter kitchen is a more productive kitchen, lessening employee fatigue as well as the chance of miscommunications and accidents.
The result: a ventilation system designed to save the operator energy, boost efficiency and significantly reduce operating costs.
The Science Behind ELX:
- Rising – studied the naturally rising thermal plume vs. where we wanted it to go
- Entering – developed a geometric hood configuration to maximize the natural energy
- Returning – harnessed the energy of the rising plume to accelerate the air into the extractors
- Holding – applied fluid dynamic laws to conserve energy by keeping air velocities high
By utilizing natural sciences, ELX wins the air war through a passive approach which is simpler and less expensive than other hood systems which rely on active elements like mechanical fans, plenums and jets.
The #1 reason for smoke loss in exhaust hoods is make up air!
