Why use a grease interceptor?
There are numerous reasons to use a grease trap in a food service establishment. One of the mains reasons is to prevent expensive maintenance problems that will eventually occur if fats, oils and grease in wastewater aren’t separated before being discharged into building pipework. Benefits of using a grease interceptor include:
- Prevention of blockages in internal pipes and foul odours from grease build-up.
- Reduced likelihood of FOG related equipment downtime.
- Compliance with Building Regulations Part H subsection 2.21.
- Helping the environment as grease can be recycled and does not go to waste.
