Grease Trap Emptying & Servicing

Grease trap emptying and Grease Recovery Unit servicing

Grease traps are designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system. Bio Green UK provides grease trap emptying services to remove the accumulated grease and solids from the grease trap. Grease recovery units (GRUs) are designed to recover grease from wastewater. Grease recovery servicing is the process of maintaining and servicing GRUs to ensure they are operating at full capacity and producing effluent that meets with the requirements of the Environment Agency. If you require any of these services, please contact Bio Green UK.

Below ground Grease trap empty

Below ground grease traps do need regular maintenance and emptying via a vacuum tanker service to fully achieve efficient removal of FOG from kitchen effluent. As a guideline, it is recommended to inspect and empty them on a three-monthly basis by your local licensed waste carrier. For smaller pubs & cafes this may be increased to 6 monthly depending on usage. If you require any of these services, please contact Bio Green UK.

GRU Grease Recovery Unit

The BG GRU is a robust unit that can be installed to extract the grease and oil from almost any kitchen waste stream. It comes with a 10 year conditional warranty and is constructed entirely of stainless steel. The unit has optional integral downstream biological dosing added by Bio Green UK. The bio-fluid is dosed directly into the downstream drain so as not to compromise the grease removal process at the heart of the unit.

The wastewater enters the GRU and food solids are removed by way of an internal mesh food-straining basket. The FOG-contaminated wastewater then flows into a central chamber where the GRU design creates a natural upward pressure. This coupled with the residence time speeds up the separation process and allows the waste FOG to flow through a unique valve that will only allow FOG to pass and then flow out into an external collection container for recycling. While this process is occurring clean water is allowed to continuously flow through the unit and out to drain achieving a 95% removal efficiency compared to standard conventional traps at 60%.
