WHAT IS A GREASE TRAP?

What is a grease trap and where can I get one is often the first question people ask when told by a plumber or water authority to install one. Grease traps are essential a plumbing device that traps fats and oils discharged to drain during the cooking or washing up processes in a commercial kitchen. Grease traps can be anything from the size of a microwave to very large tanks installed in the ground. Their size depends on the flow rate they are designed to handle and the standards used by local authorities. Grease Traps work by allowing grease enough time to separate from water and float to the surface where they are trapped behind a baffle. Normally, the grease trap needs to be emptied before the trapped grease reaches a certain volume (usually about 25% of the actual liquids volume of the tank). A pumping company will empty the grease trap typically once a month. A grease removal device is a grease trap that has a mechanism for removing the trapped grease once trapped meaning that the need for "pump outs" is greatly reduced if not eliminated. This is what the Grease Guardian automatic line of products is able to do. In most cases the Grease Guardian is compact enough to fit under sinks or ovens but for larger applications the unit can be installed into basements. Grease Guardian also offer traditional grease traps that are free standing and comply with European Standard EN1825. These separators also have pump options for easier transfer to pumper trucks.
