Making Sure That Your Food Business Remains Sanitary

What Does a Grease Trap Do?
A grease trap works by removing grease from the wastewater, preventing clogs. To accomplish this, the flowing water is slowed down, giving it time to cool. As the temperature of the water decreases, the grease begins to rise to the top. The grease is then caught in the grease trap, and the leftover wastewater flows out of the trap.
What Happens When a Grease Trap Fails?
A common problem in the food service industry is having a grease trap that fails to work. This happens most often when a cast iron or metal grease trap has been installed. These metal grease traps can be replaced with traps made of plastic that are highly-rated for long service life and resistance to corrosion.
A grease trap that is too small, has corroded, or has rusted can also have disastrous consequences, such as:
- Septic problems
- Backup of greasy water
- Health code violations
