•The ParkUSA® LintTrooper® is used in commercial and institutional laundries to
remove excessive amounts of lint and silt that
may interfere with the proper drainage and
treatment of wastewater. Local plumbing codes
require the installation of a lint interceptor to
pretreat the wastewater.
The LintTrooper® is a lint and sediment interceptor that consists of a multi-compartment basin and unique separation technology for lint and sediment separation. Typical applications include commercial/institutional laundries, dry-cleaners, and textile operations. The waste-water discharge from these facilities usually contains high quantities of lint, silt, dissolved and suspended solids, as well as detergents. The LintTrooper® is compliant with both UPC and IPC plumbing codes, and can be equipped with debris screening technology that prevents string, rags, buttons, and other materials from entering the public sanitary sewer system.

- Interior liners available
- Meets all building codes
The LintTrooper® is typically located outside the building and
buried below grade, where wastewater can exit the laundry via
gravity flow and enter the interceptor. The interceptor contains
multiple compartments where the lint flocculates and floats to
the surface, and heavier solids sink to the bottom. As the
wastewater enters the interceptor’s first compartment, the water
velocity is significantly reduced, allowing for separation and
fall-out of the lint and sediment. Water travels into the second
compartment through the piping manifold, where further
separation occurs. The water exits through an outlet pipe
positioned between the floating and settling layers. Neutral
buoyant particles are further separated by an internal effluent
The buried interceptor is typically constructed of precast concrete, providing years of continuous service. To ensure maximum performance of the interceptor, a sample well is recommended downstream of the interceptor. As its name implies, water samples can be drawn and lab-tested to determine sediment total suspended solids (TSS) content and interceptor performance.
- Good to use in BMPs
- Medical Facilities
The ParkUSA LintTrooper® has the main components listed below:
- Screen filter: Contained in the model LTSC configuration, the screening filter offers enhanced separation for neutral
buoyant particles. Screens are available down to 100 microns. All sediments reside in the interceptor for periodic
cleaning by a vacuum truck service company.
- Filter baskets: Contained in the model LTSSB configuration, the
screening baskets are removable for onsite solid waste
disposal of the collected lint and sediment. This allows for maintenance by onsite maintenance personnel.
- Control system: Consists of NEMA 4X panel with service
notification and internal tank sensor for easy use by the
- Interceptor basin: The shell of the unit can be constructed from
precast concrete, fiberglass, or steel. Model names and
configurations vary by material.
