WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A GREASE TRAP
a responsible foodservice business, you’re keen to install a grease management
solution to manage the fats, oils and grease entering your drainage system and
the wider sewer network but how do you ensure you’ve chosen the right
solution? Kriss Ombler provides some
advice on the key factors to consider and questions to ask.
This is important because it affects the amount of FOG (fats, oils and grease) that your kitchen is discharging. Your menu options (the type of food you produce) can affect the amount of grease produced so it’s useful to bear this in mind when deciding which grease trap you may require. The type of grease trap you purchase can be affected by the number of meals you serve per day, the type of cuisine you provide and your operating times.
If you only have one or two sinks in your kitchen then you won’t require the same type of grease trap as one that can manage four or five. Additionally, if you have a dishwasher connected to a grease trap it will affect the flow rate and the type of grease trap which is most suitable for your kitchen. Calculating the maximum flow rate your kitchen produces is essential when selecting your grease trap. At Aqua Mundus, we provide a sizing tool to help you work out the most appropriate grease trap for your premises. It can also save you money on maintenance and emptying costs on an ongoing basis.
The grease trap you choose should reflect the type and size of kitchen in your food service establishment. If space comes at a premium, you may want to consider having your grease trap installed below ground or in a basement/plant room. SIZE MATTERS! If you opt for a grease trap that far exceeds your requirements it can mean you’re literally putting money down the drain, but if you choose one that is too small, it might be ineffective and you will increase the amount of maintenance it requires and as a result, ongoing running costs.
