Commercial catering equipment manufacturer Lincat has launched Refresh – a new range of ductless air recirculation units. 

Product details:

Developed in conjunction with sister company Britannia Kitchen Ventilation, these self-contained, free standing kitchen air recirculation units are designed to be used where ducting to the outside is impractical.

They work by extracting the cooking fumes from directly above the equipment, filtering that contaminated air through an advanced four-stage filtration process before recirculating clean air back into the kitchen.


The Refresh air recirculation units are ideal in places where venting to the atmosphere is impossible, difficult or costly. Refresh units are designed to be used with electric rather than gas equipment since these must, on every occasion, be vented to the outside with safety interlocks.

The Refresh units also benefit from a variable speed controller. This allows the fan to operate at the most appropriate level to deal with the cooking fumes, while maximizing the lifespan of the fan and filters.  Easy to install and of robust, stainless steel construction, each Refresh unit is supplied with a comprehensive two-year onsite parts and labour warranty.


There are three Refresh units in the range – the Refresh Mini, Midi and Maxi. They can accommodate either single or multiple items of equipment up to 500mm, 1000mm and 1500mm wide respectively.

All three Refresh units are available now.


Individual pricing enquiries can be obtained from any Lincat dealer. Details can be found on the Lincat website,​.

Why you should uby it:

“There are many occasions where venting to the outside is either difficult or impossible,” said Rachel Smith, marketing manager of Lincat. “Take concession areas within airports or train stations for example, or listed buildings in conservation areas.

“Our new Refresh units are designed to enable you to operate where you might not have been able to before, or to expand your existing output, with a minimum of disruption or additional investment.”
