Pro-Cast Products' Grease Traps Help Commercial Kitchens Battle FOG

Grease Traps for Wastewater Systems to Intercept Fats, Oils and Grease for Sewage Contamination Prevention

HIGHLAND, CA--(Marketwire - August 18, 2009) - Pro-Cast Products, leading Southern California producer of precast concrete products, has began campaigning for commercial kitchens to use grease interceptors (grease traps) to separate fats, oils, and grease from its wastewater.

"Dealing with grease can be a huge issue for restaurant and food service kitchens," explained Pro-Cast's Dan Ross. "... and if not dealt with properly, can lead to slimy sewer blockages. When grease enters the waste stream it can form solids that increase the time and cost of treatment at wastewater plants. It's imperative for commercial kitchen operations to have some kind of interceptor, separator or trap to prevent the grease from entering the sewer system."

Pro-Cast Products' grease traps provide just the solution for commercial kitchens. The basic design of the grease trap is fairly simple: the grease traps work by using gravity and coalescent as a means of separation.

Regular maintenance is required to ensure proper operation. Removal of the accumulation is done with pumping. An inspection of the fittings, piping and internal baffles is recommended at this time. Grease that is free of food debris is sometimes known as "Yellow" and can be re-used for such purposes as Bio-Diesel production. However, grease that has been sitting or has not been filtered for debris is known as "Brown" and is too contaminated to be of any safe, future use.
