The purpose of the grease interceptor is to reduce Animal and Vegetable Fats, Oils and Greases (AVFOG or FOG) in wastewater to acceptable levels. The acceptable level of AVFOG and FOG in wastewater as established by the authority with jurisdiction in your area will determine the size grease interceptor required. Several area ruling authorities have prepared a formula to follow when sizing grease interceptors. Sizing grease interceptors to hold large quantities of grease will reduce pumping and cleanout costs. Outdoor grease interceptors also provide easy access for maintenance and inspections while reducing the possibility of food contamination during cleanout. The health benefits alone make the value of an outdoor grease interceptor outweigh that of an indoor collection unit. The additional benefits of being watertight, durable and easily installed make outdoor precast concrete grease interceptors your best solution for your grease disposal needs. Our precast concrete grease interceptors stand apart from interceptors made of alternative materials.
Venting and Odor Control
Building codes usually require the interceptor to be vented to a roof vent through the inlet plumbing. Improper venting of the building's plumbing system is the cause of most odor problems. Improper venting causes the gases to build up in the grease interceptor and can allow them to escape, leading to odor problems. Prevent odors by forcing any odor escape through the roof vents utilizing a well designed grease interceptor with gas-tight manhole covers and the proper building ventilation.
