Why Grease Traps?

The EPA has noted that grease from restaurants and industrial resources are the primary cause of sewer line blockages. As fats, oils, and greases enter the main sewage system, they cool and congeal, effectively clogging sewage lines. Once a sewage line clogs, it can quickly lead to overflows and backups that can not only result in major property damage to your store or restaurant, but can also contaminate local bodies of water. By ensuring the proper grease trap is installed in the plumbing systems of your food service establishment, you can avoid these hazardous situations and the frustrating service and repair calls that would come with them. Not to mention, the inclusion of a grease trap in your kitchen will help you pass routine health inspections with flying colors.

How Do They Work?

Overall, the grease trap is a simple, yet extremely efficient system. A flow valve attaches to the inlet valve at the front of the grease trap. This slows the flow rate of the water and grease entering the trap, ensuring the water and oil will have enough time to separate before the water is pushed out the other end of the unit. As the water enters the grease trap, it immediately hits a baffle which forces the water down and agitates it. After the water and grease reach the bottom of the trap, the fats, oils, and greases will separate from the water, rising to the top of the trap, leaving the cleaner water at the bottom with a protector around it. An air relief valve is also built into the unit to prevent the development of vacuum pressure within the trap, also negatively affecting the flow rate of the water and limiting the removal of grease from it. Once the oil has separated, the grease-free water will flow out of the grease trap.
