Cleaning and Maintenance

The Midtherm canopy range is designed to provide a long lasting high quality finish and high performance extraction. To ensure the system continues to extract grease safely whilst maintaining a hygienic, corrosion free finish, it is essential that regular maintenance procedures are implemented.


Canopies require bi-annual inspection to ensure trouble-free operating. All grease drain points should be checked for blockages and cleaned as required. Grease collection trays should be emptied as required.


All filters are provided with grips for easy removal and insertion. Appliances should be isolated before cleaning to avoid unfiltered air entering the system and depositing grease (causing a potential fire hazard).  

Depending on the cooking load, filters should be cleaned accordingly to ensure optimum working conditions. It is recommended that the filter and collection drawers are cleaned once a week to prevent accumulation of dirt, grease, grit etc. Both mesh and baffle type filter cells are sized to facilitate their cleaning with any commercial dishwashing appliance. Alternatively, soaking for 15 minutes in a warm degreasing agent can also clean mesh-type filters, without the use of aggressive cleaning solutions.


Fans should be checked regularly for undue noise or vibration. Cleaning the fan impeller often cures any vibration. Fan motors with grease fittings should be lubricated using low pressure grease gun with shell alania no.3 grease. We manufacture our own range of fans for site specific or specialist needs ask for our brochure.


An annual inspection should be carried out to ensure there is no accumulation of congealed grease in the ductwork. The HVCA recommended cleaning periods for extract ductwork is either 3 monthly (Heavy use: 12-16 hours per day), 6 monthly (Moderate use: 6-12 hours per day) or annually (Light use: 2-6 hours per day).
