REQUIREMENT

We were asked to retrofit a grease trap into an existing commercial kitchen. Due to an awkward discharge pipe at high level, it was necessary to install a pumping station after the grease trap. To avoid kitchen closure we were asked to complete the installation within a specific time slot.

METHOD

• A full site survey was carried out to ensure installation would go seamlessly.
• An active grease trap was specified, rather than a static grease trap to increase the level of FOG removal.
• A twin pump unit with high level alarm was installed to discharge the outflow from the grease trap.
• A full wet test of the kitchen was performed to test the maximum capacity prior to opening to ensure there were no issues.

RESULT

• An active grease trap can be emptied and maintained daily by kitchen staff.
• A correctly maintained active grease trap mitigates nuisance odours.
• An active grease trap such as a ProTrap Auto also removes food particles.
• An active grease trap such as a ProTrap Auto also removes food particles.
• This solution obviates the need for costly drain rodding and the risk possible kitchen closure which could affect business.
• A twin pump solution offers redundancy in the system should one pump fail.
• When pumping the waste from a kitchen installing a grease trap prior to the pumping station reduces the likelihood of pumping station breakdowns.
