Grease Trap Installation Auburn

Grease traps are an effective way to ensure proper waste disposal, especially in commercial establishments that handle food and other things that produce fats, oils, grease (FOG) and other debris that mix in with wastewater. With these contraptions, the water that comes out of the kitchen drain becomes clear of the heavier waste that might eventually get into the city’s sewer system and become pollutants.

Typically, the traps have an inlet as well as an outlet pipe where the wastewater flows from your system’s drains to the waste system. When wastewater comes in through the inlet pipe, the flow gets reduced enough to give it time to separate the fats and oil from the actual water. The heavier liquids then go to the collector which you can eventually clean out and dispose of properly.

As a commercial business, it’s highly advisable to install such a device to your existing plumbing system to ensure proper waste disposal is being practiced by your establishment. Aside from making sure you’re abiding by your town’s waste regulations, you also reduce the possibility of oils and other food-related debris from blocking your pipes. No one wants to have to go through the whole trouble of replacing every single pipe in their plumbing system for sure!

Commercial Grease Trap Installation Auburn

There are a few kinds of grease traps that you can have installed in your establishment.

Manual grease traps have been around since the 1880s and is the type that is mostly installed in smaller businesses or homes. These are usually made of stainless steel or plastic and require routine cleaning. Once it’s due for a clean up, you’ll need a waste disposal business to handle the pumping of the trapped FOG and food debris inside the tank.

Automatic grease traps, on the other hand, are set up in such a way that the system heats and skims the trapped oil and transfers them in a location where the byproduct can be safely disposed of or recycled. They are usually available in different sizes as the manual grease traps but are considered to be a better investment as they are more efficient and run on a longer term.

A bigger version of the manual grease trap is the gravity grease trap. These are in-ground tanks, typically made of steel, concrete, or fiberglass and make use of gravity to separate the FOG from the wastewater. Just like the manual grease trap, it will eventually have to be cleaned out by a grease disposal business.
