Grease traps allow Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG) to separate from the water which allows for their removal prior to the drainage system. It is recommended that they are installed close to a source of contamination and before any foul waste can enter the drainage flow and to suit the expected liquid temperature.
Drain blockages are greatly reduced as well as contamination of small sewage treatment plants being significantly prevented and improved septic tank performance just through the installation of a grease trap.
A GMS Grease trap provides sufficient storage in its primary chamber allowing for adequate solidification of FOG molecule-structures before passing through an advanced coalescing filtration system.
The coalescing filtration system contains three different grades of filter to prevent solids and waste passing into the final settlement chamber.
1. Wastewater pipe
2. Tank inlet
3. Solids retention
4. Fats, oils and grease (FOG) retention
5. Advanced coalescing filter
6. Polylok filter (optional)
7. Tank outlet
8. Mains sewer system
9. Additional desludge points (optional)
10. Heavy duty manhole cover
11. Outlet access
