Management of wastewater from hospitality applications takes a step forward with the extension of ACO’s range of in-ground gravity grease arrestors, now available up to 5,000L total capacity.Wastewater containing fats, oils and grease (FOGs) and food solids enter the grease arrestors from the kitchen or food processing plant. Food solids sink to the bottom of the unit under gravity, while FOGs, which are less dense, float to the top and the treated wastewater flows into the sewer system.Treatment of trade waste is vital. FOGs in our water ways compromise hygiene, workplace health and safety, plumbing and the environment if not adequately managed. The build-up of FOGs in pipes or through untreated discharge can result in costly repair bills and non-compliance with water authorities and other regulatory bodies.
The range of below ground grease arrestors from ACO is now available in 3,000L, 4,000L and 5,000L capacities for in-ground applications to complement the 1,000L, 1,500L and 2000L below and above ground units. Larger commercial kitchens such as hospitals, cafeterias, cafes, and small food processors can now have greater control over FOGs discharged from sinks, dishwashers, kitchen appliances and other drainage outlets.
