Commercial kitchens and food preparation areas create waste water containing fats, oils and grease (FOG) and food debris. If they remain in the waste water stream, it impacts the performance of the kitchen’s internal and external drainage system by blocking the pipes. If left untreated, the FOG has a major impact on society causing blockages (Fatbergs) in the sewer system and reducing the sewage treatment plant’s efficiency.
By implementing an effective grease management system the kitchen operator not only plays a critical role in the protection of our environment but also improves the kitchen’s performance by preventing internal blockages and unwanted odours.
AGT grease traps are available as 40, 80 or 120 litre units and help prevent help prevent fats, oils and grease (FOG) and food debris from entering waste water, reducing the risk of pipe blockages which are not only disruptive but can also compromise hygiene.
The AGT Grease trap is a cost-effective system designed to remove FOG and food. It is a container, sized to fit below a sink, away from the operational area, and ideal for a smaller kitchen or where space is limited.
The position of the unit’s inlet ensures waste water remains in the grease trap for the FOG and food debris separation process to take place. A basket, made from perforated stainless steel, separates bigger food particles from the waste water. Inside the grease trap there are two baffles to hold FOG in the container, while the heavier food particles sink to the bottom.
