A grease trap under the sink is the perfect solution for your home! What is it and how to use it?
Fatty impurities contained in drains can block the pipe lumen, causing blockage. Fatty acids cause rust and destroy pipes. Special equipment comes to the rescue — a grease trap connected to the sewerage system.
Grease traps are a very useful thing in any home. Most people at least once in their lives have thought about buying a grease trap — special equipment made of polypropylene or polyethylene, which is designed to separate fats and eliminate them from wastewater. They are usually installed under the sink in the kitchen or in the bathroom to trap greasy food, oil, and small debris. Grease traps are also used in cafes, restaurants, canteens — where you have to drain fatty substances into the sink.
It is extremely important to choose the right grease trap of suitable capacity so that the equipment works properly and without problems. And for you need to understand how the grease trap works under the sink.
The principle of operation of grease traps is very simple and based on physical laws. The separation of fat is made possible by the fact that fat is lighter than water. He goes upstairs and stays there. Particles that are heavier than water, on the contrary, settle to the bottom. Purified water enters the second, and then the third chamber, in which the post-treatment takes place. Periodically accumulated fat and sediment are removed and disposed of. For more efficient operation of the grease trap and to reduce the amount of accumulated dirt and odor, it is recommended to use biological products that help decompose complex organic contaminants into simple and safe substances.
