The primary function of a grease trap is to separate greases and oils of vegetable or animal origin from waste water (such as in commercial kitchens, Hotels and large catering establishments), and retain the separated liquids.
Why is a grease trap needed?
To prevent grease entering a treatment plant where it can have a detrimental effect on treatment process and can stop it treating completely. In many countries it is a legal requirement to have grease traps on a commercial kitchen drain including Europe and the USA.
The Biotech range of GRP Grease Traps/Separators works through a simple two-chamber tank where wastewater enters the primary chamber and debris settles. The wastewater then flows into the gravity separation chamber where grease and oil rise to the surface. A low-level pipe removes the separated water from the secondary chamber and releases it to the drainage system. The surface layer of grease will remain inside the tank until it is removed by a Waste Disposal company.
- Fast food restaurants
- Commercial facilities with canteen
- Houses were significant preparation of meals is made per day
Biotech grease traps will, by the removal of fat and grease:
- Greatly reduce incidents of blocked drains from catering establishments
- Improve the performance of Sewage Treatment Plants
- Prevent contamination of small sewage treatment plants
- The most popular, lowest maintenance solution
- Smallest model is suitable for applications with up to 100 meals per day.
Isolate the separator from the drainage system either by closing pre-installed valves in the upstream and downstream manholes or by securely fitting proprietry pipeline stoppers.
Using a licensed effluent disposal contractor (your contracted service provider) empty the entire contents of the grease separator ensuring the complete removal of sediment.
Great care must be taken to ensure that all chambers are emptied equally so that no baffle is subjected to an excess head of pressure from the presence of silt. Fill the grease separator with clean water up to the outlet invert level.
NOTE: Filling the grease separator with clean water is vital to performance requirements. Replace manhole covers and remove the cones and/or barriers from the work site.
Your grease separator is now ready for normal operation!!!
