Default Recycling antifreeze

I know this forum isn't geared toward auto or industrial maintenance but the wealth of knowledge here is better than I can find on other sites. MODS: If I am completely off topic please delete this post.

I have seven forklifts operating in a filthy environment. The radiators must be removed every 2-4 weeks and soaked in orange terpene solvent to remove resin accumulation.

The retiring mechanic was not reusing the antifreeze, claiming that it was too much work to keep it clean during removal. My new mechanic agrees that we should reuse it. However, we need to make sure it is free of the oil and dirt that always seem to find their way into the drain pan.

I am open to suggestions for some kind of cleaning system, maybe a circulating pump and some kind of filter. Can anyone suggest an appropriate filter?
