Grease Trap/FOG Interceptor Installation
Need a grease trap installed?
Departments of Public Works require that all food service facilities have a grease trap [or FOG interceptor], a grease recovery unit or a specific exemption from this requirement. A properly installed and maintained grease trap provides a mechanism to remove fat, oil and grease (FOG) and solids from kitchen drain lines prior to those drains entering the sewer system. If not removed FOG can congeal within the pipes and cause a backup.
FOG and solids enter the trap and over time separate from the water – the FOG float to the top creating a level of scum. The solids sink to the bottom. Water eventually continues to pass through the trap and is eventually discharged into the sewer system. The scum and solids must be periodically pumped from the trap to ensure it continues to operate effectively.
Grease traps come in a range of sizes. Some are installed inside; some are installed underground outside. The type of trap needed depends on the amount of FOG and the flow rate that will potentially move through the device.
