Wastewater from commercial kitchens is contaminated with FOGS (fats, oils and greases). The introduction of FOG’s and food solids into the general drainage/sewage system (either main sewage network or private treatment facilities) is detrimental to its proper function and has been shown to be a significant cause of blockages, restrictions and so increasing flood risk. It is important that well designed Grease Management Products and Systems are installed by catering establishments, food processing facilities and any other locations where there is a need to protect the drainage system from blocking up due to FOG’s solidifying. The Jumbo range of grease traps is this product.
The Jumbo was designed in the UK and first launched into the market in 2009. It conforms with the then draft standard BS EN1825 and also the existing UK Building Regulations Part H. Since its launch in 2009, thousands of Jumbo Grease Traps have been installed throughout the UK and worldwide.
The Jumbos unique patented design and process performance has has established it as a leading and effective grease management system. Now with 3 models available with Nominal Sizes from 1 to 3, all designed to comply with the design calculations in BS EN1825 part 1 and 2. The range will cater for kitchens and restaurants up to 500 covers per day.
A grease treatment system should be specified and installed as an integral part of the drainage design on restaurants, catering establishments and process plants and abattoirs, especially those connected to a packaged sewage treatment systems.The specification of the correct grease treatment system is crucial in supporting the drainage system and the sustainability and performance of the final treatment process.
The Jumbo is robust and very durable and has a 50 year design life. It is also manufactured from high-density polyethylene and weighting just 20 kilos is relatively lightweight which can be handled and installed by one person . Its unique circular baffle sets the Jumbo Grease Trap apart from other grease traps on the market.
