Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation (DCKV)

Summary

Regulate temperatures, reduce noise levels and cut energy costs with Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation (DCKV).

Demand Control Kitchen Ventilation (DCKV) uses advanced sensors and variable speed controls to ramp up ventilation during busy preparation periods, and wind down ventilation during slower periods, significantly cutting back natural gas and electrical energy usage.
