Coffee roasting is a dirty business. Be a good neighbor and a good steward by sustainably and safely filtering smoke, odor, chaff, dust and CO2
EcoFilter by VortX:
Watch this animation to see how the EcoFilter combines the centripetal force of a high-efficiency cyclone together with atomized water to filter the majority of contaminants from your roaster’s exhaust.
This video exhibits a properly installed EcoFilter working on a P5 Probat roasting a full batch at CoRo in Berkeley, CA. You can see the point at which steam begins to appear and later the point at which the steam begins to pick up some color.
Please bear in mind that every installation is unique. Many factors beyond our control affect emissions from the EcoFilter, therefore we cannot make a specific performance guarantee.
"Our café is in a residential neighborhood and also close to schools and parks nearby, so we were looking for the best option for smoke suppression. We want to be sure we are good neighbors and we don’t receive any complaints. We chose the VortX and we feel it helps us to be very responsible members of our community and we’re being considerate to the people around us. Plus, it’s a very affordable solution when compared to what else is out there. It’s been really good for us."
"At CO-RO one of our core values is sustainability and using a traditional afterburner really undermines that core value. The VortX uses water vapor and the only energy the VortX needs is the energy to run the water pump. If you care about the environment you have to look at a better technology and we're really proud to be one of the first installations of the VortX."
"We are part of a public market a major retail center in Oxnard, CA. We didn’t want our smoke and odor going into the neighborhood and negatively impacting people’s lives. We want to produce the cleanest air we can using the best method we can, so we are using the VortX to handle the cleaning of our air. It’s awesome because there is minimal cleaning and it’s a much better option for our business."
