Grease Traps Grease traps for below ground & free-standing applications
ACO offers a choice of two types of grease trap: below ground and free-standing.
Both types of grease trap can be used as a gravity separator, although for optimum effectiveness they should be used in combination with a biological dosing system.
The dosing unit periodically injects a biological activator into a connecting pipe located upstream of the grease trap. When effluent / waste water enters the trap, it flow through the sediment basket which catches larger solid particles. Fats, oils and grease (FOG) rise to the surface and separate quickly, ensuring less contaminated water flows into the sewer.
