Fire Patrol "A"
CONSTRUCTION: The sturdy design of the Fire Patrol “A” filter is made of two layers of baffles, strategically placed to allow grease laden air to swirl, adhering the grease to the baffles themselves. Grease drains down the baffles into a trough, where it can be easily wiped away. Support strips hold each baffle at precise distances from one another, allowing the proper distance between each baffle as well as giving the Fire Patrol the stability this type of filter requires. Each baffle “pad” is supported by a solid metal frame, securely riveted on one side.
Maximum temperature is 250 degrees F.
MATERIAL: The SMITH FIRE PATROL “A” is made from heavy commercial Aluminum on both the baffles and the frame. Even the rivets are Aluminum.
INSTALLATION: For proper installation of the Smith Fire Patrol, baffles must run vertically, allowing for proper grease drainage. For example, a 25 x 20 filter has the length of the baffles being the 25″ side and the width of the filter being the 20″ side. Drain holes are punched at the bottom of the baffles for two reasons. First, these holes allow the grease to drain into the trough so the grease can be easily wiped away. Second, these holes allow for easy drainage when the filters are being cleaned.
ECONOMICAL: Because of the unique design of the baffles themselves, there is little waste in production, allowing Smith Filter to pass the savings on to you. The filters are designed to withstand numerous cleanings, yet there cost comparative to a disposable baffle. The Smith Fire Patrol is a very cost effective grease filter.
CLEANABILITY: Easily cleaned in a conventional or commercial dishwasher, sink or by steam. When cleaning Aluminum filters, never use a strong alkali solution, as it will eat away at the aluminum. Recommended cleaning times vary per application depending on the type and amount of grease accumulated.
