Understanding Your Grease Traps

Grease traps are the unsung heroes of commercial kitchens, silently preventing a greasy disaster from unfolding in your sewer system.  Here’s how they work:

The Science of Grease Separation: As wastewater enters the trap, a series of baffles create a calm environment.  This allows lighter-than-water fats, oils, and greases (FOG) to rise and collect on the surface,  like oil floating on top of soup.  Meanwhile, the wastewater, free of FOG, exits through an outlet at the bottom and continues its journey to the sewer line.

The Importance of Regular Cleaning:  Think of your grease trap as a bucket catching oil drips from a car.  If left uncleaned, the bucket will overflow, causing a mess.  Similarly, a neglected grease trap will eventually become clogged with FOG, preventing wastewater from flowing properly.  This can lead to backups in your kitchen, unpleasant odors, and even overflows into the sewer system, potentially resulting in fines or even a shutdown.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a grease trap and what does it do?

A grease trap is a plumbing device installed on drainage lines to intercept fats, oils, and grease (FOG) before they enter the sewer system. FOG can solidify and clog pipes, leading to backups and sewage overflows. The grease trap allows FOG to cool, separate from wastewater, and collect on the surface for easy removal.

Grease traps are mandatory for commercial kitchens that produce significant amounts of FOG. This includes restaurants, hotels, cafes, and food processing facilities. In some cases, residential properties with large capacity garbage disposals might also benefit from a grease trap.

A licensed grease trap service company will pump out the collected FOG and clean any accumulated solids from the bottom of the trap. They may also perform a light cleaning of the internal components to ensure proper functionality.

Failure to maintain a grease trap can lead to several problems:

  • Sewer backups and overflows: Accumulated FOG can solidify and clog sewer lines, causing backups in your building or even the municipal sewer system.
  • Fines from the local authorities: Many municipalities have regulations regarding grease trap maintenance. Non-compliance can result in fines.
  • Environmental damage: Overflowing grease traps can release FOG into waterways, harming aquatic life.
