Lint interceptors are used in non-private establishments to remove excessive amounts of lint and silt that may interfere with the proper drainage and treatment of waste water. Local plumbing codes generally require the installation of a lint interceptor where there is a sufficient amount of waste material. Typical applications include commercial/institutional laundromats and dry-cleaners. The waste discharge from these facilities usually contains high quantities of lint, silt, dissolved and suspended solids, as well as detergents.
Both UPC and IPC Plumbing Codes require the interceptor to be equipped with a debris screen, wire basket or similar device, removable for cleaning, that prevents string, rags, buttons and other materials ½ inch (12.7 mm) or larger from entering the public sewer system.
