Each year nearly half a million tonnes of grease and fat enter the uK and Ireland’s sewerage system. Grease will stick to pipe walls and eventually cause blockages. Fats and oils get just about everywhere and can seriously damage waste water treatment equipment, cost-ing municipalities millions in repairs every year. Fats, oils and grease (FoG), if allowed to enter a natural water course will cause obvious damage to the environment.
Grease is a problem for most city municipalities and consequently legislation to prevent FoG pollution is being enforced. Polluters face large fines or closure if they fail to manage their FOG waste effectively. Luckily there are numerous systems for handling FoG. Grease traps and grease removal units can be installed by kitchen operators to trap FoG at source and remove it before any damage is caused.
ACS Environmental offers a wide range of standard GRUs for your business.
There are many ways to trap and remove grease. the traditional method is to in-stall a large grease trap into
the ground outside the kitchen. This trap then needs to be emptied every month by a licensed pumper/recycler. If there is no space outside then the option to install a grease trap inside the kitchen exists. A manual grease trap can be installed under a sink but must be emptied at least once a month, depending on how busy the kitchen is.
In some cases the grease inside the trap can be treated with chemicals, enzymes or bacteria. For busier kitchens it is advised to install an auto-matic grease removal unit, capable of trapping and removing the FoG waste on a daily basis. Both manual and automatic traps can be installed in basements when there is no space in the kitchen or out-side. use the table below to help you decide which system suits best.
