Grease Traps

Grease traps, sometimes also called as grease separators, are generally used for separation of greases from wastewater. The point is that greases belong among difficult substances that may cause significant problems in sewage disposal systems – they form deposits in sewers and generate objectionable odours. Grease traps contribute to the prevention of such problems because they are able to capture and precipitate greases from wastewater; grease-free wastewater can be then discharged to the sewer system. We manufacture grease traps in several options and the selection of a suitable type will depend on various parameters, such as grease types and quantities or wastewater flow rates.

Grease in sewerage systems causes problems, both mechanical, in terms of the clogging of pipes, and hygienic, i.e., foul odours. It also causes problems for the entire treatment process in wastewater treatment plants, where it impairs the sedimentation characteristics of sludge and subsequently the efficiency and outflow parameters.



A device that is steadily growing in popularity is the automatic grease trap. It is a mechanical grease trap consisting of a plastic or stainless-steel waterproof tank with a system of scum-boards and partitions, supplemented with a system that is capable of automatic or semi-automatic cleaning. It means that sludge can be removed without directly opening the trap. Everything can work simply on the basis of the connection of a suction vehicle to a quick-connection coupling, which is installed on the external façade of the building. Therefore, this system is mainly used in places where the opening of the trap may cause hygienic problems, i.e., in restaurants, fast-food shops, kitchen facilities, and meat and meat product processing plants.
