The ventilation specialist berbel from Rheine in Westphalia receives another award. The expert jury of the Plus X Award, the innovation prize for technology, sport and lifestyle, has once again honoured a berbel extractor. berbel Downline Performance with the regenerative permalyt® filter was honoured by the jurors of the Plus X Award in the categories High Quality, Design, Ease of Use, Functionality and Ecology. “With the Downline family and the patented berbel principle, we offer the highest level of vapour capture and the best air purification in the smallest of spaces“, emphasises Annette Frommeyer, berbel Marketing Manager, and adds: „Our trough fans with optimised separation unit ensure consistently strong grease separation while at the same time requiring less energy. We are particularly pleased with the award for our permalyt® regenerative filter system.“
The recipe for best air
The self-regenerating and maintenance-free berbel permalyt® filter has been a new addition to the downline family since January 2021. The filter system reliably and permanently transforms unpleasant odours in the kitchen into clean air. The filter mats of the berbel permalyt® filters are made of a special type of active carbon, which enables two modes of operation. During normal operation, air flows through the filter mats and captures the odorous substances. Up to 97 percent of odours are eliminated. After a certain duration of use – 30 minutes of uninterrupted cooking or 60 minutes in total – the regeneration process starts in the closed filter system. Odours are neutralised with the aid of a catalyst through a thermal catalysis process. The first recirculating air filter system that regenerates itself.
