REDUCING FOG PROBLEMS WITH A GREASE TRAP

Hello Blog readers!

A new Tideway Tunnel is under construction to help London’s sewer system operate efficiently.  The upgrade to the sewer system will help cope with the increase in population and demands on the system.

Unfortunately the problem with fatbergs will still happen if Fats, Oil and Grease are entering the sewers.  Workers have to manually clear the waste or use high powered jets to remove the blockages.  London unfortunately is no stranger to fatbergs and previously has removed a fatberg the size of a double decker bus!!  Grease is one of the biggest issues to deal with in a built up city area.

City authorities are tackling the product head one by operating FOG Programmes. A FOG programmes seeks to reduce blockages by ensuring restaurants and kitchens put in place preventative measures and best kitchen practices to reduce FOG waste.  Installing a grease trap is usually the first obligation for a restaurant owner though simply installing a grease trap or grease interceptor is not enough.  All grease traps require a level of maintenance to maximize results.

GREASE TRAPS

A grease trap is designed to prevent fats oils and grease (FOG) from entering the drain where they will inevitably cause blockages and damage wastewater treatment and pumping equipment.  Grease collected by grease traps should be stored in the same way as spent fryer fat and given to grease rendering companies who will recycle the waste.
