What Your Outside Grease Interceptor is NOT Protecting
Across the country you will find Fats, Oils, and Grease ordinances and programs that call for food establishments to install and maintain a grease interceptor. These programs vary drastically in the rules and regulations they decide to require. Sizing, location, maintenance, and material are just a few of the many areas that are left up to the discretion of the municipality. In many cases, there are very few details included in the ordinance and food establishment owners are left wondering what is required of them and what best suites their specific needs.
Going with a “point source” automatic grease removal system such as the Grease Guardian has many benefits that all food establishment owners should consider when selecting what type of interceptor to purchase. One of which is the location that this type of equipment is installed.
The Grease Guardian is uniquely designed to be installed at the source of grease discharge. Installed in the kitchen, Grease Guardian equipment not only meets your obligation to protect the public sewer system from harmful FOG but also your buildings internal piping. Outside interceptors require long pipe runs from the inside FOG source to the grease interceptor located outside. The longer the pipe run, the more surface your greasy wastewater touches, and grease sticks to everything! Nothing is protecting your buildings piping system. This can lead to backups and clogged pipes that YOU, the owner, are responsible for! A properly installed Grease Guardian shortens the distance from the source of the FOG, a 3-bay sink, to the installed interceptor. Shorter distance leads to less headaches.
