The importance of grease separators for commercial kitchens

Working in a commercial kitchen calls for cleanliness on a whole new level, which is why you need the equipment that ensures a hygienic kitchen. Apart from being a legal requirement, a clean kitchen ensures customer satisfaction. In many commercial kitchens, greases and oils get into the wastewater, which leads to grease and food residue in the drainage system. This can cause pipe blockages, corrosion, bad odour and also problems with the operation of the sewage plant. For this reason, many countries, including UAE, regulated grease handling for all locations which produce greasy wastewater, like commercial kitchens. That being said, getting rid of grease is easier said than done. This is where the grease separator comes in, also known as grease interceptor or grease trap.

What is a Grease Interceptor?

A grease interceptor is a system installed to help you get rid of unwanted grease and food particles without clogging your pipes, or causing unbearable working conditions. Kessel EasyClean is set up to work with your current sewer line and disposal system, preventing fats, oils, food bits, and grease from entering the wastewater disposal.

Working with the power of gravity a grease interceptor uses a number of densities to separate grease, oil, and other waste from water. Keeping in mind that vegetable and animal oils and fats have a lower standing when compared to water, it automatically rises to the surface. Ensuring the grease separator separates the two to keep up with healthy water flow. While the rest is set aside to be dealt with in an environmentally safe manner. This can be emptied and cleaned based on your workings, offering a system that works best for your business.
