Need a plumber to sort out your grease traps?
Residential, and Commerical Kitchen work is a major cause of waste, especially liquid waste. Lots of oil, grease and dirty water pass through the drain every single day, and this could be disastrous to your piping system by causing problems that cost a lot of money to handle.
Oil, grease and other liquid fat can clog the pipes and sewer lines in a neighbourhood. For this reason, it is not advisable to pour these substances down the drain.
So, what do you do to avoid these problems while also getting rid of your liquid kitchen waste at the same time?
A grease trap is a solution that works perfectly for commercial and residential properties.
We're the plumber of choice across Brisbane, and Ipswich for Grease trap installs and servicing.
A grease trap is simply a trap placed in the drain or waste pipe to prevent grease and other kitchen fat from making their way into the sewer system. It is also known as a grease interceptor, catcher, FOG (Fats, Oil and Grease) traps or grease recovery/management devices.
The grease trap is simply a receptacle where FOG is intercepted before they can make it to the drainage system. It does this by trapping the FOG so that the clear water can pass without any more disturbances.
Grease trap works with the understanding that water is denser than oil and grease (about 10 to 15% denser) and so they cannot mix due to this difference in density. This is why oil and grease will float on top of the water instead of mixing with it.
The grease trap slows down incoming wastewater and cools it down so that it can be divided into 3 layers. The grease and oil floating on top is trapped by a system of baffles, while solids are left to settle at the bottom of the interceptor. The clear water is left to escape through an outlet baffle.
Some trap interceptors have a strainer which helps collect solid debris, thereby reducing the number of solids that will be collected at the bottom of the interceptor.
The grease trap or interceptor is to be cleaned constantly to avoid the build-up of grease and solid particles, as this build up may allow solid debris and grease to start flowing through over time.
You need to have a grease trap at home, restaurant, etc to prevent clogging of your piping system. This clogging is much more difficult to deal with when it happens and a grease trap is a secure way to prevent that before it happens.
Also, you avoid paying large fines from clogging pipelines in your neighbourhood. Grease traps are the best way to ensure you are not a polluter.
