Grease Traps

Aqua Mundus offers a wide range of grease management solutions to suit all requirements and budgets. We provide eco-friendly waste management resolutions at reasonable prices.

Depending on your establishment needs, Aqua Mundus can provide various styles of traps that are fully automatic, requiring little or no maintenance, and traps which can handle solids as well as grease.

Additionally, we can provide passive grease traps that filter food and grease, although they do require more “hands-on” attention on a more regular basis. Our specialist team will be happy to help you determine which product is right for your establishment.

What is a Grease Trap?

Put simply, it is a device that kitchen wastewater flows through before it enters the sewer system. It acts as a filter or separator for fats, oil and grease (FOG) that is present in the kitchen wastewater.

If required, there are also units that can separate food particles from kitchen effluent. Depending on the type of situation and the size of the kitchen there are a wide range of trapping devices that can be installed in your premises.



How Does a Grease Trap Work?

Kitchen wastewater (containing FOG) enters the trap. As grease has a lower density than water, usually 10-15%, it is unable to mix with the water and so rises to the surface. This occurs due to a system of baffles.

A baffle is a wall inside that slows down and controls the flow of water. The grease then fills the trap from the top down and the grease-free water exits under the final baffle wall to the main sewer drain.

Why Do I Need a Grease Trap?

You may require one for a number of reasons. Firstly, your local water company or authority may require you to have one installed, or you may have a blockage in the sewer line. This is due to the fact that solidified grease (grease solidifies at normal room temperatures) can cause major blockages in the main sewer lines. These can then cause sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs).

If this happens the process of solving the sewer overflow requires large amounts of money and manpower, which the water company can back-charge to the offending food service establishment. It is therefore highly advisable that you install a grease trap in order to stop any problems occurring.

Here at Aqua Mundus, we supply an array of grease traps for virtually every grease waste removal issue.

Above-Ground Grease Traps

These traps are available for internal and external uses. They are installed next to the sink/equipment within the kitchen area. Larger traps can be centrally located within the plant to take the wastewater from the entire kitchen. Above-ground traps can be automatic grease removal units that self-clean or passive ones which require more maintenance.



Below-Ground Grease Traps

Traps installed below ground have an access cover that permits easy access to the unit for maintenance. They can be installed externally, but can also be fitted within a building, provided they are fitted with a substantial airtight lid to prevent any odour. There are a variety of below-ground traps, including super-capacity and biological units.Traps installed below ground can also trap food waste sediment and sludge deposits that become separated from the contaminated water. These can then be removed using a vacuum tanker.


Automatic Grease Traps 

An automatic grease trap is an innovative solution to manage grease and fats in your commercial kitchen environment. We offer state-of-the-art automatic grease traps that are essential for preventing grease buildup in your plumbing system, featuring automatic separators that enable ease of use and minimal cleaning.  

Our automatic traps operate on a simple yet effective principle. As the greasy water enters the trap it undergoes the separation process. The grease, being less dense than the water, rises to the top of the trap and is automatically skimmed off and collected in a separate chamber thanks to high-tech sensors that operate on a programmed schedule. 

We can install your automatic grease trap either externally or inside your building. Benefit from the high levels of efficiency an automatic grease trap offers, with these types of grease management systems consistently operating at maximum performance as the grease will not build up inside the main unit. Our automatic traps are designed for a long life and operate on low power, helping to reduce running costs, and are ideal for small and large commercial kitchens.
