Flo Trend Container Filters are excellent at dewatering various types of wastes. The Front Loader Container Filter is designed to be picked up and unloaded by standard “front loader” trucks. Its simple design consists of three components: the container, load support filter panels, and filter media. Two 2-inch drainage ports allow for liquid to drain by gravity or by pump suction. Front loaders are available in 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10 cubic yard units and come in a basic, standard, or gravity/vacuum style.
Basic Front Loaders only have filter media on the bottom of the container shell. This style is the most economical, and works well with sludge that is easy to dewater (sand, grit, bar screen material, etc.).
Standard Front Loaders have filter media on the bottom and one wall of the container shell. This extra surface area accelerates the drainage rate. Options for more than one wall filter are available.
Gravity/Vacuum Front Loaders are constructed so that the side and back wall filters drain into a cavity separated from the bottom filter cavity. This allows for sludge to dewater by gravity through side and back wall filters while a pump is used to pull a vacuum on the bottom filter, thus accelerating the drainage rate in most instances. Comes with an additional set of 2-inch drainage ports.
