A particulate filter is a device composed of fibrous or porous materials which remove solid particulates. A water filter removes impurities by lowering contamination of water using a fine physical barrier.
Grease filters are designed to remove grease particles from the exhaust hoods in a kitchen air stream. Exhaust systems that have broken, missing, or undersized air filters are prone to collect accumulations of highly combustible grease deposits throughout the entire duct system. Air filters or grease filters may also be used inside of cooking, beverage, and refrigeration equipment to reduce the build up of crumbs and dust, and to limit grease migration.
Fryer filters help remove particles from your fryer systems and preserve food quality. They act as a fine sieve, cleaning the oil of food particulate as it passes through. Fryer filter papers are available in both single sheets and with an envelope design, into which the oil is poured.
Finally, there are air filters used in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems and air handlers. These filters are designed to trap dust, pollen, and even bacteria and viruses during ventilation while protecting the internal components of the heating and cooling system.
As opposed to a caster, which rolls and may have a locking mechanism, a foot is a stationary weight-bearing implement at the base of a piece of restaurant equipment. It may be made of metal, plastic, or rubber and usually screws into the frame or base of the machine. A Foot Pedal refers to a foot controlled actuator or valve such as that used to turn on a machine or a faucet.
(Note: "foot" may also refer to a unit of measurement of length, width, and depth covering a distance equal to 12 inches.)
