Let us take care of your needs so you can go back to running your business and eliminate the hassle of having to find an efficient and affordable way to properly dispose of grease and food waste materials correctly.
Beyond Plumbing Corp manages installations of grease traps all across South Florida for numerous restaurants, malls, and produce companies. We will install grease traps for your commercial storefront and protect the counties’ waste water system from contamination and line blockage through proper installation and efficient management of grease traps. When maintained and managed properly, grease traps prevent your restaurant kitchen grease and food waste materials from entering the city sewer system. Grease is a leading cause of sanitary sewer overflows, since it clogs sanitary sewer lines which ultimately leads to line blockages. Unfortunately, these problematic waste streams enter our local waterways, where they can cause further cleanup costs for the city, and can lead to restricting of recreation, tourism, and commerce. All grease traps in your commercial storefront must be regularly emptied and periodically cleaned to prevent costly and dirty back-ups, overflows, or line blockages.
The purpose of a grease trap is to prevent grease and food solids from entering the city’s sanitary sewer system. This is accomplished by capturing all of the waste deposited in the drain in the primary separation basin. The water in the trap cools the grease to room temperature, therefore solidifying the grease itself. Because grease is a lot lighter than water, it floats to the top, while the food solids that are heavier than water sink to the bottom of the primary separation basin.
A crossover pipe is located in the middle of the wall separating the primary from the secondary separation compartment allows the cleaner water to flow into the secondary separation basin. The primary separation basin does most of the separation work, while the secondary separation basin is to conduct a second separation of any grease and food waste.
The outgoing line leaves the secondary separation basin and establishes the normal liquid level, where it will then flow to the sanitary sewer system.
A properly-maintained grease trap should always maintain a normal liquid level at all times. This does not indicate that the trap is “full”.
