The Importance of Grease Traps – Introducing the New EasyClean® free UnderSink Grease Separator

The Importance of Grease Traps – Introducing the New EasyClean® free UnderSink Grease Separator

In November, we welcomed Trevor Webb, Director of Operations at Durey Castings Limited to CountyClean Group’s headquarters to introduce us to Kessel’s EasyClean® free UnderSink grease separator. Trevor gave our team a detailed presentation on the grease separator and the guys were able to get their hands on the trap to fully understand how it can be assembled and used.

Fats, oils and grease (FOG) are not advised to be poured down your sink/drain and the damage caused may be costly to repair. FOG can not only clog your drains and reduce the flow of wastewater, but can also affect water treatment facilities. A ‘grease trap’ may be exactly what you need avoid any short-term and long-term damage.

So How Does a Grease Trap/ Grease Separator Work? 

A grease trap cools warm/hot greasy water and then it will separate the grease and food waste from the water. Undertaking a regular maintenance of the grease trap and of the trap line, will benefit you by helping to avoid any blockages and problems that may occur. A grease trap may not be suitable for a residential property as FOG can be collected on a smaller scale, in a container, and disposed of at your local recycling facility. However, it may appeal to large scale establishments such as hotels and restaurants and prove to be a useful product to avoid any unwanted FOG problems.

Should you Install a Grease Trap by yourself?

To avoid any unpleasant damage to your drains and sewer systems, grease traps or grease separators should be installed by a professional. Our friendly operatives at CountyClean are happy to supply and install the EasyClean® free UnderSink for you, so that your grease trap operates smoothly with no interruption.
