REQUIREMENT

We were asked to retrofit a grease trap into an existing commercial kitchen after it failed a landlord’s grease audit. 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.
• Specified an active grease trap, rather than a static grease trap to increase the level of Fat oil and grease (FOG) removal.
• Installed a twin pump unit with high level alarm to discharge the outflow from the grease trap.
• Installed a new suitably rated pumped discharge main.

RESULT

• An active grease trap can be emptied and maintained daily by kitchen staff.
• A correctly maintained active grease trap mitigates nuisance odours.
• A twin pump solution offers redundancy in the system should one pump fail.
• An active grease trap such as a ProTrap Auto also removes food particles.
• Disruption was avoided by working within a client specified time slot.
• The tenant now fully complies witht the landlord’s FOG discharge requirements.
• When pumping the waste from a kitchen installing a grease trap prior to the pumping station reduces the likelihood of pumping station breakdowns.

 

FOCUS ON:

 

INCREASED ATTENTION BEING
GIVEN TO FOG MANAGEMENT

Awareness of the problems caused by fat, oil and grease (FOG) discharge is growing. Commercial landlords are increasingly appointing external auditors to report on their tenants’ FOG management.

Please get in touch to discuss the most suitable method of FOG management for your business.
