Choosing your Grease Trap

Grease traps are designed to solve the problems most commonly found in drainage systems of commercial hot food premises. We provide experience and expertise, so you know your grease management system is taken care of. 


Grease interceptor, fat trap, grease separator or fat interceptor?

Grease traps are also commonly known as grease interceptors, fat traps, grease separators and fat interceptors. These terms are interchangeable and used for a wide range of products designed to restricted the flow and treat the wastewater discharged from the wash up process of commercial kitchens by separating the harmful content and allowing the treated water to pass through to your drainage system safely. The wastewater settlement time within the grease trap allows for the separation of food solid, fats, oil and grease and this is retained or trapped in the Grease Trap.

All types of grease traps will require regular removal of the trapped waste if they are to remain efficient and provide an effective ongoing solution.The density of Fats, Oils & Grease is less than water and under normal commercial kitchen operating conditions food solid will gather on the bottom of the grease trap and fats, oil and grease will naturally float on the waters surface.

It is good kitchen practice to scrape and clean pots & crockery before rinsing in the pot wash and dishwasher. Some internal kitchen grease traps have a filter basket designed to filter food solid prior to the settlement in the chamber of the grease trap.
