ZGF Series Hydrofilter

One of the key issues that need to be eliminated in the kitchen of a restaurant, pub, café and other catering establishment is to avoid fire hazardous situations. Especially where the main dishes are prepared on an open fire or grill.

To create a safe environment in the kitchen, our company offers the ZGF Hydro Filter Exhaust Hood.


The ZGF Series water filters are a unique product. It combines the options and features of two attributes of a modern professional kitchen: an exhaust hood and a spark extinguisher. It is installed above the grill ovens (jospers) to eliminate the ingress of sparks into the air duct.

This device prevents combustion occurrence and fire in the exhaust duct systems of cafés, restaurants, pubs and other catering establishments. This is thanks to a system of labyrinth filters, a water curtain and flow reversal.

In order for the water filter to eliminate any threats that may provoke a fire, it is mounted so that the josper flue pipe is connected to the vent in the bottom of the hydrofilter, while the hydro filter is attached to the wall and ceiling.

Hydro filter Design Features

We offer ZGF Hydro Filters made of stainless steel and equipped with special labyrinth-type grease filters. Within only a few seconds, they eliminate excess steam, grease and unpleasant odours that cause discomfort to visitors of the establishment and kitchen workers.

We also produce ZGF Hydrofilters for Josper, Mibrasa, Movilfrit, and Kopa ovens.

We suggest installing a storage tank to reduce the water consumption in the product. It will make the water circulate in a loop, instead of draining into the sewer immediately past the water filter. The storage tank is optional. It must be ordered separately.

The full configuration will provide you with a device for the kitchen of the establishment, which will:

  • Quickly extinguish sparks and flames coming from grill ovens and barbecues;
  • Cleanse the air from soot, tar, and grease;
  • Cool gases and smoke to a temperature of 45 to 60 °C (if you install a storage tank, the temperature will rise by 20 to 30 °C);
  • Neutralize unpleasant odours;
  • Reduce the amount of smoke.

Another reason to install a hydro filter exhaust hood is to improve working conditions for those who spend 8 to 12 hours in the kitchen, as well as to prevent steam and various aromas from entering the guest hall. This is an important condition for creating a comfortable environment in the establishment.
