The Big Dipper automatic grease removal device lets you take control of grease and small food particles in an easier and more hygienic way. Its electrical assembly includes a heater, skimming wheel and skim setting controls that work together to remove grease from the tank and store it in a separate grease collector.

With the NEW Advanced Maintenance Assistant option, select Big Dipper Units, including the W-250-AST, also automatically empty small food particles from the basket filter, sending them down the sewer line. Taking just 1 minute a day to empty the grease collector limits exposure to small food particles, grease and fats while eliminating pumping fees.
