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
GreaseStopper
®
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
®
because
the system's regular self-cleaning
feature prevents grease build-up.
The GreaseStoppe
r
®
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
’s
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.
