GreaseShield® is a Pro-Active Mechanical Grease Trap operating in real time, taking advantage of waste thermal energy present in effluent being discharged from commercial kitchens to remove emulsified FOGs, particularly saturated animal fats before they solidify. GreaseShield® removes and dewaters organic solid matter (by means of a Pre Filter or FilterShield® and optional internal Automatic Solids Removal / Transfer system) that is typically entrained in the effluent preventing anaerobic foul smelling conditions brought about by biological activity, depleting dissolved oxygen present in the effluent. Because biological degradation of organic matter in water is substantially prevented, BOD, COD, FOG and SS loadings are significantly reduced.
GreaseShield® recirculates grey effluent internally pulsing 5 Min on 5 min off, to promote greater efficiency of FOG removal and to assist in removing “floaty” dairy products. This process avoids the usage of potable water.
GreaseShield® incorporates a vortex flow controller to regulate flow without causing an impediment to entrained wastes.
GreaseShield® Low Level units incorporate touchless sensing methods (n the process of patents being applied for), to detect FOGs by innovative means and in conjunction with a PLC controller transfers the FOGs to the main GreaseShield® unit for safe removal. Grease is prevented from solidifying before safe removal.
All GreaseShield® units incorporate zero maintenance FOG removal means to provide maximum contact with effluent internally. The Removal Means is pulsed 5 Min on 5 min off, to promote greater efficiency of FOG removal.
