Grease Trap Breakdowns - Why Do They Happen?

Reactive servicing for grease traps can be required for a number of reasons and can be necessary even if you’re grease trap has been well looked after and kept in good working order. Grease trap breakdown reasons can include:

  • Overloading: If a grease trap is overloaded with too much grease, food particles and other solid materials, it can become clogged, leading to a breakdown.
  • Improper Installation: If a grease trap is not installed correctly, it can cause problems such as leaks, which can lead to breakdowns.
  • Lack of Maintenance: Regular maintenance is necessary to ensure that a grease trap is functioning correctly. If it is not cleaned or serviced regularly, it can break down due to build-up and clogging.
  • Age: Grease traps, like any other equipment, have a lifespan. If they are old and worn out, they may start to break down and require repairs or replacement. If you are needing regular reactive grease trap servicing, it may be more cost-effective to install a new unit.
  • Poor Quality: If a grease trap is made of low-quality materials or has been manufactured poorly, the unit can be more prone to breaking down. Choosing a high-quality, durable grease trap can help prevent breakdowns. We provide a wide range of reliable, proven grease trap solutions at Aqua Mundus.
  • Incorrect or Outdated Unit: Your food service business may have grown considerably since you had your grease trap installed and may no longer be able to cope with the workload of your kitchen and the amount of fats, oils and grease (FOG) it produces.
