How the GreaseStopper
Automatic Grease Interceptor Works
Simply the Best
The GreaseStopper
is usually
connected to the drain lines of the
pot washing sink, the dishwasher
pre-rinse sink and the sewer drain
- typical sources of FOG in a food
service establishment.
As greasy water enters the unit, it
flows through the interceptor
s screen
basket and strikes the inlet baffle;
solids are removed, and the velocity
head is dissipated. The wastewater
enters the grease retention area
where the grease separates by
gravity flotation and remains
between the two baffles.
Thermostatically-controlled electric
immersion heaters keep the collected
grease in a liquid state in preparation
A Reputation for Quality
Recognized as one of the industry's
premier grease removal devices, the
has many proven
performance advantages. It has
greater retention time than competitive
automatic units, which equates to
better grease separation and interceptor
performance. In fact, it recovers almost
100% of the fats, oils and grease and
reduces total suspended solids and
biological oxygen demand.
The GreaseStopper
is more efficient
than traditional grease traps because
solid materials are removed separately
in a dedicated chamber using a screen
basket. The remaining volume of the
vessel is devoted exclusively to grease
interception and separation.
The accumulated grease, common in a
traditional grease trap, is not apparent
in the GreaseStopper
the system's regular self-cleaning
feature prevents grease build-up.
The GreaseStoppe
operates at its
optimum volume at all times, minimizing
any sloppy manual maintenance.
for skimming.
The Diskimmer, an electrically-powered
device that operates on a time or
event-controlled basis, skims the
liquified grease off the wastewater
surface. Grease adheres to the
rotating plastic disc until it passes
between scraper blades.
The skimmed grease is directed into
a steeply-sloped trough and drained
through a conduit into a disposal
container or barrel and recovered for
proper grease recycling. The grease
can be converted into Biodiesel, a
clean-burning, renewable fuel source.
The effluent flows downward, under
the discharge baffle, then to the outlet,
where it is discharged to the sewer.
Inspection and cleaning is simple -
removable vapor-tight top covers
enable easy access.
