If you manage a lift station, then you know that one of the most common operation inefficiencies is associated with the stations are grit, dirt, rocks, and other inorganic materials that clog up systems. These materials make it difficult effectively pump or transport sludge, in addition to the time-consuming task of disposing of the debris.


Flo Trend’s experienced waste professionals devised a solution to this common problem: the roll-off container filter. Organizations across the U.S., such as municipalities, use our roll-off container filters to remove free water from grit and bar screen material so that it can be properly dewatered and transported to the nearest approved disposal site.


Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, and New York are only a few of the cities that have utilized this equipment effectively. Due to its customizable nature, the roll-off container filter is cost-efficient and scalable enough to serve even small municipalities with a range of populations and budgets.


The container’s simple design makes it effective and easy to use and maintain. The design is comprised of three primary components: the roll-off container, porous support panels, and filter media. The space between the support panels and the container walls and floor provides a drainage field for liquid, which flows out through outlets on the bottom and side walls of the container via gravity drainage or pump suction.


This is why all models of Flo Trend’s containers are unique: they can be customized to fit your exact needs and budget. Roll-off container filters come in sizes ranging from 20 cubic yards to 40 cubic yards. If our standard size range doesn’t fit with your municipality’s needs, Flo Trend creates custom filtration solutions for wastewater projects of every size and difficulty.
