Grease Trap Installation for Commercial Kitchens

Grease Traps

A Grease Trap prevents fats, oils and grease (FOG) produced by commercial kitchens from entering the drainage system and causing blockages. They act as a filter between sinks and dishwashers and the main sewer system, preventing blockages that will require drain jetting.

It is vital that businesses take responsibility with regard to the correct disposal of all FOG products. If a business has no measures in place to prevent FOG products from entering drains, such as suitable Grease Traps, they will be on the receiving end of a hefty cleaning bill and maybe even a fine and prosecution. We also offer grease trap maintenance services.

    What is a Grease Trap?

    Our Grease Traps for commercial kitchens are installed in drains as an interceptor to seperate oils, fats, grease and food waste from water, which prevents these substances entering the public drainage system.
  • 2021

    How do Grease Traps work?

    When waste is poured down the sink it runs into the grease trap. Any solid matter sinks to the bottom, the water remains in the middle and any lighter FOG floats on the top. Only the filtered waste water flows into the drainage system.

    Grease Trap Installation

    All grease traps should be installed by a professional as the traps must be specified to the flow rate rate of your sinks and dishwashers. Contact Maintain Drains if you require Grease Trap Installation or Maintenance.

    5 star review  Spoke to Jon at Maintain prior to our house purchase as a house surveyor's report does not give sufficient information. Could not fault the service. Video's of all the drains. a map of their location and description of condition which is incredibly useful for future plans. He arranged everything which was appreciated as we are (were) not local and the report was with us the next day. Like the electrician who inspected the electrical installation; both worth every penny of their fees prior to a house purchase.

Grease Traps for Commercial Kitchens

Do I need a Grease Trap?

It is vital that businesses have Grease Trap installation. The issue of large ‘bergs’ or ‘fatbergs’ in drainage systems, created from build-ups of fat and grease, have begun to impact on not only the free flowing of waste water but also the environment. For this reason authorities are now tracing ‘berg’ formations back to the source, which may result in the business being prosecuted.

In the UK, it is a legal requirement to install a grease trap in a commercial kitchen. This is because it stops fat and grease from entering the public drainage system.

If you operate one of the below businesses, you must ensure you have a grease trap installed:

  • bakery
  • school canteen
  • restaurant
  • hotel
  • pub
  • fast food chain
  • and more

Dorset grease trap installationYou are legally required to install a grease trap if you operate a commercial kitchen in the UK. This is because grease trap installation prevents fat and grease entering the public drainage system.

Fat and grease can damage pipe work and cause blockages that put entire systems out of use. Your health and safety inspector will check your grease trap to ensure it meets the current standards.

The cost of grease trap installation varies depending on the size of the job. Large commercial kitchens, for example university canteens, require a larger system than small businesses such as bakeries.
