With an efficiency rate of 97-98%, the Grease Guardian is the idealsystem for separating out grease and oil from waste water in commercial businesses including supermarkets, restaurants, fast food chains, sporting arenas and airports. This prevents these substances from polluting our waterways.
The Grease Guardian has been certified and tested in the US, Europe, Asia and Australia with absolute quality and efficiency in mind.
The Grease Guardian unit contains a removable strainer basket to capture solid debris. Wastewater enters through this strainer and flows into a chamber in which the lighter oils and grease rise to the surface. The now-separated water exits from the unit. An in-built heater is set to the requirements of each installation site to ensure that the oils and grease don’t solidify.
A motor-operated skimming wheel collects the oils and grease electrostatically, then transfers them to the outlet pipe via a wiper-blade system. The skimmed oils and grease are collected in an external container, ready for collection by a renderer or recycler.
Grease Guardian is officially the most approved and tested grease removal unit in the world
Grease Guardians conform to both European (CE) and US (UL) electrical safety requirements.
Grease Guardians have an IP/66 ingress protection rating for water and dust, making Grease Guardian the most hygienic unit in the market.
To ensure your Grease Guardian operates at maximum efficiency from day one we commission every unit we sell at no cost to you.
Our factory trained service technicians are there when you need them, spare parts are readily available ex-stock and at very reasonable prices.
Grease Guardians are highly economical to run, as they only consume electricity when they are operating - a maximum of four hours per day. The Grease Guardian can also be programmed for fewer than seven days if your business doesn’t operate every day.
Grease Guardians can be leased or rented, minimising capital outlay at a time when it is most needed.
Almost one thousand Grease Guardians have been installed in Australia and New Zealand since 1995. In this period we have replaced less than five motors and cogs, by far the major repair cost of an automatic grease removal unit, that’s less than one fifth of one percent. Little wonder that Grease Guardian is the unit of choice when reliability matters.
Grease Guardians are a sustainable alternative to a grease trap. They filter solid food waste from entering the sewer network and can reduce existing grease trap pump out requirements thus reducing truck movements. Recovered grease can be easily recycled.
For over 20 years Eco Guardians havepartnered with the Grease Guardian manufacturer FM Environmental to distribute GreaseGuardians across Australia.
Grease Guardians have passed WSAA (Water Services Association of Australia) Appraisal. Product Appraisal Report No TWA1008 states:
"It is recommended that WSAA Members and Associates accept or authorise the Grease Guardian product range for use in sewer networks..."
Grease Guardian is approved for use in dozens of countries worldwide and, of course, is CE Certified.
