A grease trap is a plumbing device that catches and separates fats, oils, and grease, often called FOG, from wastewater in business kitchens, restaurants, and food processing facilities. These traps are essential for keeping FOG from getting into the city sewer system, which can cause clogs and other environmental problems.
Grease traps rely on gravity to work consistently, taking the water from sinks, dishwashers, and other kitchen equipment through an inlet pipe. Once there, the water starts to cool, and the fats, oils, and grease solidify and rise to the top. In the meantime, the larger solids sink to the bottom of the trap. The grease trap also has a divider system that keeps the separated FOG and solids in the trap while letting the mostly clean water flow out through an outlet pipe. FOG can’t get into the sewer lines because of this process.
It all works smoothly as long as there is consistent grease trap cleaning and maintenance. Our skilled team works with business owners and kitchen managers to ensure the system is efficient and long-lasting. We also provide repair services when needed to help the kitchen get up and running again.
If you run a food-service business, you know how essential grease traps are for the plumbing and septic systems to work well. Grease traps prevent plumbing problems caused by FOG and help you keep cooking.
