The grease trap also known as grease separator is made of GRP designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system. Common wastewater contains small amounts of oils which enter into septic tanks and treatment facilities to form a floating scum layer. Large amounts of oil from food preparation in restaurants can overwhelm a septic tank or treatment facility, causing release of untreated sewage into the environment. High-viscosity fats and cooking grease such as lard solidify when cooled, and can combine with other disposed solids to block drain pipes.
Why is grease separator required?
- To prevent pipes from clogging
- To prevent corrosion and foul odor
- To reduce the impact on the wastewater treatment plants
Who needs to install a separator?
The quality of water discharged into the sewerage networks or directly into the treatment plants must comply with strict quality requirements in order to prevent fouling the environment, blockage of pipes and so on. According to most requirements, the economical agents whose wastewater may contain vegetal or animal oils, must install fat removal.
