Basic Functioning and Importance of Grease Traps

Posted Feb 22 2013 9:23am

A grease trap is always a vital part of any waste disposal system, whether it is attached to septic systems in homes or to town sewers in a commercial scheme. Cleaning of the traps should be given equal importance; the reason is the disposal of grease can be a critical thing in avoiding septic systems from breakdown or probably polluting the public water systems with unwanted waste.

 

A grease trap is a normal box-shaped device that is placed between the kitchen drain and the prime drainage system. Their basic function is to filter the oil and grease content from the water that passes it and it will hold them until it is cleaned manually.

In the market the grease traps are available and sold in the form of plastic and metals. These are available in all sizes and shapes and the smaller ones are specifically for those kitchens which cook a lot of greasy food and you should always remember that the trap must be cleaned on a regular basis; otherwise the chances of the growth of the bacteria rise higher and ultimately they can damage your drainage system.

The big sized grease traps are installed especially for big hotels and restaurants because the amount of waste output is equally higher. These grease traps can be installed on any commercial venue, if there is any chance of grease or oil and sink and floor drains. The prime motive is to stop letting the oil and grease to reach the septic tank or waste disposal systems. These traps are helping us in protecting the environment we live and enjoy.
