Consider Your Needs
Maybe you’re not sure if a large grease trap is right for you. Well, if your commercial kitchen produces hot food and you have up to three sinks (a double sink is classed as two) and / or a dishwasher, a 100 litre grease trap is perfect.
When choosing which grease trap you buy, you should note not to vastly oversize or undersize for your needs. For example, if you purchase a small under sink grease trap designed for a single sink bowl, and try to run 3-4 sinks through, it will easily overwhelm the trap and back up. Additionally, the trap simply won’t do it’s job properly which is collecting your fats, oils and grease (FOG).
Choosing a 100 litre grease trap
Yes, a small under sink grease trap might be cheaper but it won’t stand up to your requirements and needs. The last thing a restaurant or takeaway kitchen needs is a flood of dirty water! This will at best slow down your business and at worst shut down your premises altogether. Therefore, if you purchase a small grease trap and actually require a larger flow rate of 2-3 sinks, it is much better to opt for a 100 litre grease trap.
