License Agreement

The "kitchen ventilation" program comes with this license agreement. By obtaining, using or copying this program you agree and understand the given conditions and you will keep the conditions stated within.

General Description of the Program

The program is designed for calculation and design of kitchen ventilation of all categories (except the residential kitchens).
The ventilation calculation is made in accordance with the VDI 2052 STANDARD (German), based on heat and moisture production of installed appliances.
The program also supports a structural design of ATREA kitchen hoods according to respective documentation.
The program generates a complete report including technical specifications, hood drawings even with all atypical port locations, wiring diagrams as well as itemized price calculation. The program supports export of selected kitchen hoods in DXF format for AutoCAD.

Selection Procedure

Selection softwareThe units can be selected in the following steps:
  1. Active project
    Entering basic identification data about the designer, customer including the project name.

  2. Rooms
    Room size, kitchen type selection. For each kitchen type a simultaneous effect factor is given based on standards. Another factor can be selected based on an agreement with the user / engineer.

  3. Appliances
    To configure the correct exhaust capacity the exact data of installed appliances must be observed. The program offers a database selection in which there are included both specific appliances from some manufacturers and general categories.

    One needs to identify whether an appliance is served directly by the kitchen hood or whether it is placed outside the hood thus the air must be exhausted from the kitchen space. For the stand-alone appliances the location in respect to wall is important in order to state the reduction position factor.

  4. Kitchen Hoods
    • Airflow
      Summary information about the required air exhaust for each appliance in respect to temperature and humidity balance.
      The airflow can be directly entered if the appliance is not specified and the calculation cannot be made in accordance with the VDI standards.

    • Hood position and dimensions
      Stating hood position and its overhang over the cooking center.

    • Hood parameters
      The basic technical hood parameters, type selection (with heat recovery, without heat recovery), quantity of filters, pressure loss information, price.

    • Connecting ports
      Selection of supply/exhaust ports, round or rectangular. Cross area airflow speed check. Side suction grilles or side supply ports can be entered as well.

    • Automatic control
      The program includes a database of several hundred most frequently used fans for selection of automatic control type. The program also includes standard electrical wiring diagrams.

  5. Program Output
    The program also includes a print module which allows to:
    • print complete technical report
    • print hood specifications
    • print itemized price calculation
    • print hood and control system catalogue
    • print electrical wiring diagrams
    • export in txt, rtf, doc (Microsoft Word) formats for further modification
    • export the selected kitchen hood in DXF (AutoCAD) format with layers and 2D/3D views (selection)
