The Standard Grease Trap

Grease traps are designed to intercept and hold grease before it gets to the municipal sewer line or your septic tank system. If designed properly grease traps should be adequately sized to handle the grease flow. They should also be designed with a maze of baffles or compartments in which to slow the grease enough to cool and congeal on the interior surfaces of the trap. Grease traps range in size and design. The size of a grease trap in comparison to the grease flow will determine the frequency of grease trap cleanings. Each day some grease escapes the grease trap and moves down your drain lines. The daily use of soaps, solvents, and hot water, changes grease to a liquefied state and allows this to happen. This is commonly referred to as emulsification. Eventually, emulsifiers wear off and returns grease back to it’s original state. This is when drain line clogs and backups start to happen. By treating your grease trap with beneficial strains of bacteria you can help stop these blockages from occurring. Bacteria and enzymes do not work like emulsifiers. In fact enzymes break down the grease so they can be consumed by bacteria. These hungry strains of bacteria will continue to eat the grease, thus reducing the amount of grease in the trap. They also help to keep your grease trap and drain lines working efficiently. Rely on your cleaning professional’s expert advice and experience to determine your regular cleaning schedule and the right type of treatment for you. If your grease trap does not receive proper care it will become a nuisance and burdensome expense.

Grease is one of the biggest problems we encounter. Every day you are handling some type of grease. Whether that be eating out at a restaurant or cooking at home. Producing grease is a fact of life. However getting rid of grease is one of the most difficult things to do. Grease can cause major problems. Plumbing systems back up from grease, septic systems back up from grease and grease traps can overflow. Even our own bodies do not break down and pass grease efficiently. Over the years waste treatment plants tried to burn the grease to process it. They found this to be non eco friendly and extremely costly. Over time, biological studies have proven the best method is by breaking the fat molecule down with potent enzyme producing bacteria and then letting the bacteria consume the grease. The exact bacteria strains we have in our product. This method is extremely eco friendly and reduces the grease to water and carbon dioxide. Today, waste water treatment plants all over the world use this method. When grease is not treated properly it will cause many problems that lead to major expenses.
