Passive Manual Grease Trap Systems
A passive grease trap separates FOG manually using a simple gravity separation process that does not require an energy source but does need to be emptied manually on a regular basis. There are a variety of passive grease traps available depending on the size of your kitchen and its requirements. We can supply passive grease traps from 20 Litres up to 5,000 + litres in Polyethylene or Stainless Steel.
The Trapzilla is a super-capacity grease interceptor that has a grease retention capacity of up to 80% in some models, whilst maintaining a high efficiency rate. The Trapzilla has a unique, patented, curve separation technology that reduces its footprint and enables it to be installed into 90% of commercial establishments. It is constructed of tough, corrosion resistant polyethylene that provides it with a long life, but it is also supplied with a limited lifetime warranty. The Trapzilla’s patented curve design ensures that there is no buildup of grease and the interceptor is able to retain a high capacity compared to most flat-bottomed grease traps that often have a build up of debris in the corners and thus have a lower efficiency. Trapzilla can manage a maximum of 828kg of grease and a maximum flow rate of 6.31 l/s. For installations on the floor, Trapzilla are supplied with a support stand assembly to ensure safety and accuracy.
These units use a patented FreshMesh filter that is designed to filter out solid waste efficiently. FreshMesh filtration is proven to be effective with a high percentage of FOG (fats, oil and grease) capture. There is also the additional option of using the “super fine” FreshMesh system that removes coffee grounds from wastewater. The system uses its internal baffle walls to prevent FOG from flowing out to the drain line. These units are installed with a 10-year warranty. They can be used in a single sink or a multi-sink kitchen and can manage dishwasher outflow. They are space efficient, requiring a minimum area to install and operate. Due to their versatility, SSGTs are easy to retro-fit and use standard plumbing fittings. The SSGT is built to deliver years of service as it is constructed from 304 stainless steel. They also have a quick release watertight lid for simple inspection and cleaning. A stainless steel grease trap works by accepting the sink discharge water that contains food debris and FOG. Once inside the grease trap the FOG separates from the solid waste and floats to the surface. There is the option of biological dosing which causes a reaction inside the grease trap and the FOG is digested. The remaining food waste is collected in the FreshMesh basket that then needs to be manually emptied.
The ACO Lipujet is a range of free-standing grease separators for complete disposal of grease. The LipuJet functions on the basis that water, fats, oils, grease (FOG) and solid particles have different densities. Kitchen wastewater enters the LipuJet grease trap where FOG floats upwards, sludge (solid particles) sinks downwards and the separated, “cleaned” water flows away.
The ACO LipuJet can be constructed from either polyethylene or stainless steel and is available in either a round or oval design, enabling you a wide range of options to suit your specific requirements. Furthermore, polyethylene is corrosion-resistant but also light; making it easy to transport and install. The ACO LipuJet benefits from a 25-year warranty on material stability and resistance against greasy wastewater. The warranty is valid providing that the separator is installed, commissioned and maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
