Advantages of using a Grease Trap

/ / blog

Energy Reduction



  • Built in timer allows for heating element, spray-bar and skimming wheel to only be active at certain times throughout the day, for example- peak times such as lunch and dinner, thus reducing energy consumption.
  • New, low voltage (600) heating element design allows for minimum energy consumption when unit is active.
  • Our thermal cut-off system gives the heating element a maximum heat before it is turned off automatically. This takes into consideration both energy consumption and safety.
  • The new, easy to use PLC control system allows the user to utilise the built in energy saving mode without any hassle.
  • In-built motion sensor detects movement within the kitchen, thus allowing machine to turn itself off and save energy when it is not being used.

Carbon Reduction

  • The Grease Guardian unit is a compact unit with all the characteristics of a larger unit. It’s tidy, compact shape allows for lower travelling costs and fewer resources used in manufacturing which reduce carbon.
