Other Services - Fine Particle Strainer

The Fine Particle Strainer (FPS) is a high quality, low cost and low maintenance system that removes 99% of food or organic debris particles from all sink fittings before they pass into the drainage system. The reduction in solids results in dramatically reduced blockages, foul odours, corrosion, expensive reactive plumbing costs, high pumping frequency and surcharges from local water authorities.

Our Fine Particle Strainer is easily retrofitted directly between the sink and floor drain. It works by discharging wastewater from the sink through the Fine Particle Strainer. All particles (which can be as fine as individual coffee grounds) are captured for easy disposal.

As waste flows through the Fine Particle Strainer, an expandable micro-porous filter catches virtually all the debris before the clarified water makes its way into the drainage systems. The micro-filter can be easily changed by any staff member as part of daily best management cleaning practices and the captured waste simply thrown away in the trash.
