Gas-fueled or electrically fueled cooking appliances shall be used. Listed gas-fueled equipment designed for use with specific recirculating systems shall have the flue outlets connected in the intended manner. Gas-fueled appliances shall have not less than 18 inches (457 mm) of clearance from the flue outlet to the filter inlet in accordance with Section 509.2.2 through Section 509.2.2.3 and shall be in accordance with the installation requirements of NFPA 54 or NFPA 58.

A recirculating system shall not use cooking equipment that exceeds that recirculating system's labeled maximum limits for that type of equipment, stated in maximum energy input, maximum cooking temperature, and maximum square area of cooking surface or cubic volume of cooking cavity. [NFPA 96:13.2.6]
The power supply of an electrostatic precipitator (ESP) shall be of the "cold spark," ferroresonant type in which the voltage falls off as the current draw of a short increases. [NFPA 96:13.2.11]
Listing evaluation shall include the following:
- Capture and containment of vapors at published and labeled airflows.
- Grease discharge at the exhaust outlet of the system not to exceed an average of 2.9 E-09 (oz/in3) (5.0 E- 06 kg/m3) of exhausted air sampled from that equipment at maximum amount of product that is capable of being processed over a continuous 8 hour test with the system operating at its minimum listed airflow.
- Listing and labeling of clearance to combustibles from the sides, top, and bottom.
- Electrical connection in the field in accordance with NFPA 70.
- Interlocks on removable components that lie in the path of airflow within the unit to ensure that they are in place during operation of the cooking appliance. [NFPA 96:13.2.12]
