Grease traps may not be the first thing on your mind when dining out, but they play a crucial role in keeping restaurants and commercial kitchens running smoothly. These unsung heroes help prevent the buildup of FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) in the wastewater system, saving businesses from costly plumbing issues and environmental problems. In this article, we'll explore what grease traps are and how they work.
Understanding Grease Traps
Grease Traps, also known as grease separators, and their larger companion Grease Interceptors, are simple yet effective devices installed in commercial kitchens and industrial applications. They are designed to capture FOG before it enters the wastewater disposal system. This prevents clogs, backups, and potential pollution.
How Do Grease Traps Work?
Collection: Grease traps work by allowing wastewater to flow through them while slowing down the water's movement. As the water cools, fats, oils, and grease begin to solidify and separate from the water.
Separation: The separated FOG floats to the top of the trap due to its lighter density, creating a layer of grease. Meanwhile, the cleaner water continues to flow through the trap and into the sewer or septic system.
Retention: The captured grease remains in the trap until it is professionally removed and disposed of, preventing it from entering the municipal sewer system.
Why Are Grease Traps Important?
Grease traps are essential for maintaining a clean and efficient restaurant kitchen, preventing plumbing issues, and complying with environmental regulations. Regularly maintaining and cleaning grease traps are critical to ensure they function correctly.
If you're a restaurant owner or manager, proper FOG management is essential. Neglecting it can lead to costly repairs and damage to the environment. That's where Evergreen Grease comes in.
