The Coffee Guard 2 helps coffee shops and producers to prevent blockages created during the brewing of coffee from the backwash, ongoing cleaning and heating and overflow from the Barista machines. Waste such as coffee grounds, milk, water, protein and coffee bean oils will deposit in the drainage pipes and congeal to block both the drainage pipework and the main drainage pipework. The Coffee Guard 2 employs a simple technique of intercepting the liquid coffee waste byproduct at source and providing a physical barrier with a disposable ultra-fine mesh sock. The replacement frequency of the sock depends on how busy your coffee shop is. Typically, the lifespan of a filter sock in a busy location is about 2 weeks.

How ofter should I replace the fine filter sock? Figure 1 cup of coffee produces 0.1 gram of coffee grinds in the waste water. The fabric filter can hold 2.2 lbs or approximatley 1,000 grams of coffee. Therefore, the filter can hold about 10,000 cups worth of coffee grinds. So, if you sell 1,000 cups of coffee per day, the fine filter will last approximatley 10 days. If you have two Coffee Guards installed, the fine filter will last approximatley 20 days. Be sure to moniter the filter sock after installation to determine ideal replacement rate for your location.
Is there any other maintenance required? We suggest periodic cleaning of the stainless steel filter. To make this easy, the unit can be completely un-clipped from the wall brackets and then snapped back into place.
