Kitchen Duct Dilemma - Going against the grain


Remote Blower, Straight and smooth, etc, etc. Ideal run for any ductwork I suppose.

Sorta in a weird pickle for this new build. 1200CFM blower and the duct run is a bit against -best practice-. I did a test fit and the noise is acceptable.....but not ideal. I'm working on constraints of the layout

So basically
Hood Blower
Right off the hood blower is a 10" 90 Degree Elbow to make it go right
Then two 45"s to make a turn vertical
Then up to the roof

Yeah, I know I should have like 2 feet from the blower off that's 1st elbow. It is what is is. The noise levels is ~acceptable~.

Only issue aside from the run itself is some direct backpressure coming off the 90. It is what it is though...

I'm sure the air will be moving, albit not ideal. The oil particulates that the filters don't catch might be a ~sticking point~ though right ?

Whenever I need to turn on the exhaust fan I would also be opening the windows as well. So with my last kitchen remodel I put a microwave oven with fan over the cook top but did not hook it up. No code requirement for an exhaust fan in a kitchen even with a gas cooktop.

Unless local code adoption applies
