The frequency of grease trap cleaning will depend on the nature of the activity producing the grease. If the grease trap is receiving grease from a utensil washing process it will require much less cleaning then one being used to receive grease from a full service restaurant.
When we service your grease trap / interceptor, we carry out the following activities:
Waste fats, oils and greases (FOG) from food service establishments cannot be treated in the wastewater system and must be kept out of the sewers. FOG is does not dissolve in wastewater at normal temperatures. It sticks to surfaces of pipes causing blockages in the sewer system and to the surfaces of equipment in the treatment plant causing further blockages, and equipment breakdown.
The FOG will continue to build up in the sewer line restricting flow, and will eventually cause blockages. Grease Traps All food service establishments should have a trap installed on the waste water outlet to enable removal of FOG. A grease trap works by slowing down the flow of hot greasy water allowing it to cool and the FOG to solidify. The FOG is trapped by ‘baffles’ preventing it from entering the sewer system. The grease must be physically removed from the unit.
Grease interceptors and Grease Tanks capture the fats, oil, and grease flowing down kitchen drains and stop them from flowing to the sewer.
We offer our customers a number of options that we tailor to meet their individual needs. We provide long term maintenance contracts or one off callouts which our trained staff always carry out using one of our Vacuum Tankers. On completion we provide our customers with a certificate of disposal for full traceability and we dispose of the Grease in an environmentally friendly manner at a licensed facility.
Emptying grease traps regularly ensures proper performance and operation and eliminates bad odours, line blockages and the promotion of bacteria in stagnant grease.
