CAPTRATE:  IT’S A STAGE STOPPER
The latest innovations in multistage filtration power the unparalleled efficiency of Captrate’s Grease-Stop Combo Filter for restaurant hood systems. The first stage consists of a unique S-Baffle to remove and drain the larger grease particles. The second stage features a packed bed of porous ceramic media, designed to capture the fine grease aerosol particles associated with commercial cooking. The two sections simply join together for use, and separate for cleaning using a commercial dishwasher or soak tank.

EVERPURE: HIGH QUALITY, LOW PRICE AUTO-FLUSH
Everpure has launched an improved, more affordable-than-ever HSD Ultra-Filtration Series. The advanced HSD features a hollow fiber membrane for “absolute” filtration of fine particulates—sediment, cysts, bacteria and viruses--as small as 0.02 micron while permitting accumulated material to be flushed away. Performance of downstream carbon filters will dramatically improve; protection from particulate corruption extends their life and reduces change-outs. The multi-programmable controller can be set for different flush durations and intervals, minimizing water waste.

IN-SINK-ERATOR: A SENSE OF CONTROL
Sensing saves cents: In-Sink-Erator’s Aqua Saver Systems can reduce by up to 70% the amount of water used in the disposal process by sensing the load of the food waste disposer and regulating the water flow. The complete control system, model AS101, integrates the Aqua Saver feature into a CC-101 control panel offering maximum water savings, time delay and auto-reversing features. Or, add model AS to any In-Sink-Erator control–from a basic on/off switch to a control panel--to achieve the same water-saving benefits.
