New York, NY (PressExposure) November 02, 2006 -- Whether you are a restaurant, a hotel, an inn or a bed & breakfast, if you regularly serve meals to your guests, you should have a grease trap. These very simple devices, usually placed in the kitchen floor, are designed to provide retention time for grease in you kitchen wastewater to cool and solidify, so that it can be removed before it ends up in the sewer or septic system. Grease in sewers is a constant problem for municipal wastewater treatment plants and can really fowl up lines (causing sewage backups) and pump stations. Many towns are considering fines for this problem. Grease in septic systems can quickly plug up the leach fields and cause big hassles and big bucks. If you are on septic, have full meal service and don't have a grease trap, itâs just a matter of time, before you are going to pay for this omission!
Grease Traps slow the flow of wastewater with the use of a holding tank. When the water is slowed down it cools and allows the grease to separate from the water. The cooled water is then allowed to exit the grease trap while the grease is captured.
Grease traps come in many different sizes. These Zurn Grease traps are identified by their pounds and gpm. In order to find the right grease trap for your given application, you should know the size of the sinks which the grease trap will be used for. Grease Traps may be placed under the sink, or buried in the ground.
