Graph 1 illustrates an example of a typical hydromechanical grease interceptor. The amount of grease that enters the interceptor directly effects the performance of the equipment. Each day the equipment becomes less efficient as it captures and retains grease. If not properly pumped, the interceptor will quickly become ineffective and allow grease to pass through the equipment.
Graph 2 illustrates the performance of an automatic grease removal system. As the machine retains grease the capacity of the tank is negatively effected. The difference being, this capacity is regained as the equipment goes through its scheduled skimming cycle and removes grease daily. Removing grease daily allows the AGRU to maximize the pounds of grease captured between pump outs. Remaining efficient at capturing fats, oils, and grease over a longer period of time.
Clean Dry Solids Strainer – Strategically positioned just above the water level and with access from the front of the machine, the GGX range provides a unique ‘dry’ solid strainer which also eliminates the need to open the grease trap lid for emptying. Gone are the days of the messy lift out strainer for in-kitchen applications.
Durable Stainless Steel Skimming Drum – All Grease Guardians are equipped with a stainless steel skimming drum which provides durability throughout the lifetime of the machine. The stainless steel drum never loses its ability to attract and remove grease unlike some of the plastic types you will find in the marketplace.
Simple to Clean Wiper Blade – To ensure that the lid stays sealed, the GGX wiper blade assembly has been designed so that the wiper blade can be easily removed from the side of the tank, when it needs to be cleaned.
Space Saving Uni-Directional Inlet/Outlet – All Grease Guardians are fitted with uni-directional inlets and outlets ensuring the simplest of installations, which is often carried out in confined spaces. This unique design enables you to recapture precious kitchen real estate. Yes you can stack things on top of the trap, because you don’t have to open it daily!
Reliable Programmable Logic Control – By utilizing the flexibility and simplicity of a PLC, the Grease Guardian has the ability to control days of operation, operating time zones, grease load settings, motion sensors, control of flow valves, level controls and the system can communicate with building management systems (BMS). This give the system unrivaled operational flexibility and reliability.
Excellent Warranty – Fully welded stainless steel sealed tanks. All Grease Guardians are manufactured from 16 gauge 304 stainless steel with a high quality polished finish. The tanks, which don’t have any plastic liners are fully welded and sealed and carry a 10 year warranty!
Unique Space Saving – The Grease Guardian X range are the only Point Source grease traps that can actually operate in a confined space as illustrated in the picture. As the solids strainer is removed from the front there’s no need for extra space above the machine to lift out the solids basket!
