Halton's M.A.R.V.E.L. Demand Control Ventilation System

Halton's M.A.R.V.E.L. Demand Control Ventilation System

The Halton M.A.R.V.E.L. system (Model-based Automated Regulation of Ventilation Exhaust Level) is packed full of technological innovations to become the first truly intelligent, responsive, and completely flexible demand controlled ventilation (DCV) system specifically designed for commercial kitchen ventilation.

M.A.R.V.E.L., in combination with Capture Jet™ technology, offers the lowest levels of energy consumption currently possible and provides complete comfort for users.

M.A.R.V.E.L. is able to identify the current status of the cooking equipment (switched off, heating to cooking temperature, or cooking in progress). It has the unique ability to adjust the exhaust flow rate to match these three criteria and, above all, hood by hood and in a totally independent manner. If only one of the cooking ranges in the kitchen is operating, the flow rate for that hood or the ventilation ceiling zone concerned will be automatically adjusted to that required. The other hoods or zones will continue operation at a low flow rate.

M.A.R.V.E.L. is capable of continuously regulating the flow rate achieved with the extraction fans but also, and most importantly, their pressure. By operating at a variable pressure and flow rate, this system enables you to fine tune the equipment to the exact area and overall requirements, with power consumption kept to the absolute minimum. The associated supply fans are also controlled so as to guarantee the air flow balance of the kitchen. Finally it is a totally flexible system. It can be reprogrammed at any time in response to changes in kitchen layout.
