14 May HOW GREASE ARRESTORS HELP MELBOURNE, FRANKSTON AND DANDENONG FOOD SERVICE COMPANIES SAVE MONEY AND HASSLE
“Dont pour grease or oil down the drain” is probably something that most of us repeatedly heard from our parents when we were kids. Whether its bacon fat or oil from the deep fryer, the optimal method of dealing with the mess was usually to pour it into a jar or bottle and dispose of it or throw it into the bin.
When you are running a restaurant or café, though, grease disposal isnt so simple. You are preparing food in bulk, which means that you are also likely producing grease in bulk. Needless to say, bulk grease disposal isnt easy when your methods are collecting the excess fat and oil in glass bottles, soaking it up with paper towels or letting it solidify before throwing it away.
At Pioneer Plastics Pty Ltd, we have a solution. Our company supplies grease arrestors to food service businesses throughout Melbourne, Frankston, and Dandenong. These grease traps help collect oil, fat, and grease and prevent them from going down the drain, into your pipes, and the sewer system. When the grease traps are full, its easy to remove them from your food prep appliances and systems to dispose of the grease safely.
What Grease Can Do to Your Plumbing
By investing in high quality grease arrestors in Frankston or Melbourne, you can keep playing by the rules your parents taught you as a kid. Of course, though, keeping grease out of your plumbing system is about much more than obeying an age-old parental rule. After all, there is a reason that this rule exists, and its one that every restaurateur, café owner or food service businessperson needs to know.
Think about grease and what happens when you try to wash it off a frying pan. Even if you siphon off most of the grease into a bottle or jar, or soak up the remains of it with a paper towel, a greasy residue still coats the pan. Even with hot water and liberal amounts of dish soap, removing grease from a pan tends to take plenty of scrubbing and rinsing. Cleaning up grease is, to put it simply, a pain.
Now think of that same residue in your pipes. Grease doesnt just magically start to flow more fluidly after it goes down the drain. On the contrary, it continues to cling to everything—from the sides of the pipes to other substances that exist in the drain. Over time, grease can mix with other chemicals in the pipes or sewer system to create big globs of junk that are incredibly difficult to break apart. These clumps of oily, fatty waste attach themselves to the sides and tops of piping systems, ultimately coming to resemble stalactite formations in a cave.
With enough grease, the drains and pipes at your restaurant can become slow and clogged. But while drain cleaners can resolve these issues, they cant reach the sewer systems, where grease globs can create more problematic blockages. The result is costly damage to the sewer system, and sometimes even disgusting and dangerous sewer overflows.
