Automatic Grease Trap

If you read our blogs you will know reducing waste and promoting Grease Traps is our favorite topic.

Recycling waste is something we all try to do but a recent survey highlighted that more recycled items are now ending up in landfill sites.  The amount of rubbish being rejected increased by over 80 percent.

This is due to confusion around which items can be recycled by local authorities. At a glance the list of what cannot be recycled is much bigger than I expected.

Grease Traps

If you own a restaurant or a business the chances are you are probably recycling bottles and cardboard but one valuable piece of equipment for any busy kitchen is a grease trap.  Grease traps will not only help stop blockages in pipes but some FOG waste can be recycled into bio-diesel capable of fueling buses and heating office buildings.

A grease trap works by separating Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) from water.  FOG is lighter than water and will float to the top of the grease trap, the clean water will enter the sewage system and FOG waste will be trapped.

If no grease removal device is installed in a busy kitchen blockages can form in the sewer pipes resulting in flooding and the added expenses of getting this repaired.  It is also important that daily maintenance and regular servicing is carried out on grease traps to ensure efficiency.  The Grease Guardian automatic range is compact and easy to use and has a highly efficient skimming programme.  A manual range is also available and product information and specifications are available on the website.
