However, these are less than ideal instruments as they need pumping out frequently, become less effective with time and are often the source of unpleasant odours.
An alternative is the Grease Guardian - an above-ground active grease and oil interceptor that removes 97% of fats, oils and grease (FOGs) from waste water at source so that clean water passes downstream while the FOGs are collected in a container for easy recycling.
DrainProtectors can be fitted in sinks, floors and floor troughs to filter solids from the waste water ensuring that they do not pass downstream and putrefy in grease traps and sewer lines. Such devices are now a pre-requisite for Trade Waste licensing in a number of Water Authority areas.
It is a growing requirement among Water Authorities that commercial premises must install solids-screening devices with removable, perforated baskets and with secondary filters to prevent solid particles in wastewater escaping to drains.
Grease Guardian is the world’s leading at-source automated grease recovery device. Grease Guardians are installed in some of the world’s most prestigious hotel groups, restaurants and fast food chains, sporting arenas, supermarkets and airports.
