A greater range for grease separation from trade waste
ACO has announced its range of in-ground gravity grease separators is now available in up to 5,000L total capacity.
Treatment of trade waste is vital as fats, oils and grease (FOGs) in water ways compromise hygiene, workplace health and safety, plumbing and the environment if not managed properly.
FOGs and food solids enter the grease separator from the kitchen or a food processing plant. While food solids sink to the bottom of the unit under gravity, FOGs are less dense and float to the top, with the treated wastewater flowing into the sewer system.
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 ACO Passavant grease separators give designers peace of mind when it comes to trade waste discharge. The new range of capacities enables specifiers and installers to choose the most appropriate volume for the application knowing that the product is fully compliant with Australian water authorities and is easy to install, clean and maintain,” says ACO NSW sales manager Brad Ryan.
ACO’s below ground grease traps are available in 3,000L, 4,000L and 5,000L capacities for in-ground applications to complement the 1,000L, 1,500L and 2,000L below and above ground units.
A single access point in the below ground units allow for easy access for maintenance and cleaning, while a choice of access covers and reinforced precast concrete collars provide protection of the grease traps for high traffic and load environments.
The grease separators are constructed from lightweight polyethylene or glass reinforced plastic (GRP), featuring a smooth finish for easy cleaning that is also corrosion resistant to cope with the harshest environments.
They are easy to install and can be incorporated into the overall wastewater system at the design stage or as a retrofit or upgrade.
ACO provides full installation and design support for the decision making process including Revit models, drawings and installation guides.
