How Does a Grease Trap Work?


Grease traps play a critical role in intercepting fats, oils, and grease (FOG) before they enter and potentially clog the municipal sewer system. But what happens inside a grease trap? It's simpler than it might seem. The trap contains baffles or interior walls that slow the flow of wastewater, causing the FOG (which is lighter in density) to rise to the top. This separation allows only cleaner water to pass through a small opening below the baffle and continue to the sewer, leaving the FOG behind.

Selecting the right grease trap for your business involves considering your operation's size and the amount of FOG it produces. Our experts are on hand to guide you through this crucial decision, ensuring your kitchen operates efficiently and complies with local regulations.


Above-Ground Grease Traps


Above-ground grease traps represent a convenient and economical choice for smaller kitchens. These systems can be situated anywhere along the wastewater line before it merges with the municipal sewer, commonly installed under a sink for straightforward access during routine cleaning and servicing. At Aqua Mundus, we provide a variety of models tailored to your needs, from cost-conscious units that necessitate regular maintenance to advanced automated systems that streamline the process, reducing the frequency of upkeep.


Below-Ground Grease Traps


For larger kitchens or those with accessible outdoor space, below-ground grease traps serve as a more efficient solution, particularly in the long term. Although these units come with a steeper initial cost, this balances out over time thanks to their reduced maintenance demands. Our services extend beyond simple installation, as we can also manage the entire cleaning process.

Aqua Mundus deploys specialised mobile vacuum tankers to transport FOG waste safely and responsibly from your premises to certified processing facilities, handling all regulatory paperwork. This ensures not only a cleaner operation but also strict adherence to BS EN 1825 standards and local regulations.


Biological Grease Treatment


As well as our more traditional grease trap offerings, Aqua Mundus is thrilled to present biological grease treatment as an alternative premier service. This technique employs the natural FOG-eating prowess of specially engineered micro-organisms, which transform fats, oils and grease into harmless substances that can safely be deposited into the main sewer system. It's an eco-friendly approach to grease management, designed for sustainability.

The magic of biological grease dosing doesn't stop at your property line either. These micro-organisms continue to break down FOG well into the sewer system. They work tirelessly to keep pipelines clear, combating the accumulation of legacy deposits, not just within your premises, but significantly impacting the broader municipal sewer network.
