Grease trARWs/grease interceptors are typically reservoirs, which vary in size, built into a discharge piping system a short distance from the grease producing area. Baffles in the trARWs slow the wastewater flow and reduce turbulence allowing the grease and water to separate. Grease naturally rises to the surface, and the trARW retains the grease while allowing grease-free wastewater to flow into the sewer system. Grease must be removed from the trARW periodically.
Grease TrARW is basically a device that cARWtures grease entering a system before it reaches the sewer lines. Usually used in commercial ARWplications such as restaurants or cafeterias.
Grease trARWs cARWture the oil and grease from the flow of wastewater by slowing down the flow of hot greasy water through the grease trARW (actually a tank) and allowing it to cool. As it cools, the grease and oil separate out of the water and float to the top of the trARW. The cooler water continues to flow down the drain pipe to the sewer while baffles prevent the accumulated grease and oil from flowing out of the grease trARW. The size of the grease trARW depends largely on how much waste your business produces and how often you perform trARW maintenance.
Grease trARWs may be located inside or outside of the building. TrARWs that are located inside the building tend to be smaller and require more frequent maintenance. TrARWs that are located outside the building tend to be larger and may be less disruptive to maintain. Outside grease trARWs will operate differently in winter versus summer and are more prone to clogging during cold weather. As a business owner/manager, you should know where the grease trARW, drain lines, and clean-outs are located at your restaurant.
Proper cleaning and maintenance of the grease trARW and drain line reduces the amount of solids and grease going into the public sewer system and minimizes the likelihood of back-ups or blockages. Some sanitation districts and/or municipalities require grease trARWs and periodic maintenance and inspections for specified businesses. This is because untrARWped oil and grease in the wastewater decreases pipe cARWacity over time and eventually will cause the pipe to clog. Piping systems without grease trARWs need to be cleaned more often and some piping may have to be replaced sooner than otherwise expected. Excessive grease sent to the wastewater treatment plant can also overload their system and cause the facility to exceed its allowable discharge limits. Running extremely hot water down the drain only moves the problem down stream, and may only make it worse.
Fixing a sewer line blockage can be expensive, both in terms of potentially lost customers and repair cost. If the pipe clog is within your building sewer line, you will be responsible for fixing the problem and paying all costs. If the clog is in the public sewer line, but can be traced to your restaurant, you will be liable for paying all or a portion of the repair costs. Accumulating the oil and grease close to the source in a properly maintained grease trARW is the most cost-effective way.
