FLSA’s “U” shaped baffles with PTFE coating cause the grease to drain off the filter quickly. The non-stick PTFE coating facilitates cleaning. Type I filters are easily cleaned in a pot sink or commercial dishwasher.
FLSA Type I grease filters with the Spark Arrestor screen to prevent airborne sparks and embers generated by solid fuel cooking from entering into the hood and duct system. Type I filters with Spark Arrestor meet criteria set by NFPA #96 for cooking with solid fuel.
