A & B Construction is licensed and certified for installing commercial grease traps in restaurants and homes across North Florida. We can install small grease traps located inside the restaurant and large tanks outside.

Commercial Grease Trap Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is one of the most important aspects of machinery and yes, grease traps too. Many problems can occur if the grease trap is not maintained and level of FOGs (Fats, Oils and Greases) are not monitored. If commercial grease traps are not maintained it can create problems such as drain line blockages, back-ups and foul odors. If the level of FOGs are not monitored, there could be more of them entering the county sewer lines, which leads to hefty fines.

Questions about Grease Traps 

What is a grease trap?

A grease trap is an interceptor that kitchen waste water flows through and catches grease. They are located between the restaurant drain lines and sanitary sewer lines. Food municipalities use grease traps to prevent the fats, oils and grease (FOG) from entering the municipal sewer system.

How does a grease trap work?

Grease traps slow the flow of water coming from the drains and allows the water/grease time to cool. As it cools, it will float to the top and the heavier stuff will float to the bottom of the grease trap/interceptor and the rest of the water will float into the counties water treatment system.

Where are grease traps/grease interceptors located?

Grease Traps or Interceptors are located either inside or outside of the establishment. Most large restaurants and school kitchens will have their grease trap/interceptor buried in the ground, outside of the facility. Smaller restaurants normally use smaller grease traps located inside of the building.

I own a Food Municipality, do I have to install a grease trap?

Yes, local governments require commercial kitchens to install grease traps. FOGs can create havoc on municipal wastewater systems. If a facility lets more FOGs leave their facility than the amount allowed by the county, they will be subject to a fine.

In Columbia County Florida, Minimum removal efficiency for oil and grease interceptors for animal fats and vegetable oils shall be eighty percent (80%). Minimum removal efficiency for oil/water separators for trace petroleum based wastes shall be ninety percent (90%). Some automotive facilities may be required to install a grease trap at their location as well.
