Grease Interceptor CleaningService

Maintaining optimal functionality of grease interceptors is imperative for large-scale foodservice businesses. These substantial plumbing devices play a crucial role in intercepting wastewater originating from kitchen sinks or dishwashers. By filtering out fats, oils, and grease (FOG), they prevent these substances from entering plumbing systems, septic fields, and wastewater treatment facilities. Grease interceptors operate on the principle of density, with greases being less dense than water and consequently floating on its surface. These devices efficiently capture and collect FOG and solids, ensuring the smooth operation of your establishment.

Grease Traps Vs Grease Interceptors

It is essential to understand the distinction between grease interceptors and grease traps, particularly concerning their handling capacities. Grease traps can manage water flow rates of less than 50 gallons per minute, catering to smaller establishments. In contrast, grease interceptors are specifically designed for larger establishments that discharge a higher volume of wastewater. Grease interceptors can handle more than 50 gallons of water flow per minute, maintaining their effectiveness even under substantial demand.

Importance of Timely Maintenance

Efficient operation of grease interceptors hinges upon proper maintenance and regular cleaning. Failure to remove FOG from the interceptor promptly can lead to sewer line blockages and overflows within your establishment. If these substances infiltrate the city drainage system, they can cause significant clogs and eventual system failure. Consequently, municipal authorities across the USA mandate the installation of grease interceptors (or grease traps for smaller establishments) in all commercial kitchens. Timely cleaning is equally vital; neglecting this responsibility may render you liable for damages incurred by other businesses or residences in the city due to obstruction. Non-compliance can result in citations and substantial fines, or, in severe cases, suspension of your business license until the issue is resolved.
