Grease separator (grease separator, grease separator, grease trap) HELYX is used as an initial unit in treatment facilities and provides protection of treatment facilities from grease and large mechanical impurities. Recommended for installation in wastewater treatment systems at catering establishments (restaurants, cafes, canteens), meat and fish processing plants, supermarkets.
Wherever there are emissions of oils and fats of vegetable or animal origin. In order to prevent the ingress of grease effluents from industrial areas, grease traps for VOCs have been developed. Technically, it can be a stand-alone equipment or a special module as part of multifunctional wastewater treatment systems in a single fiberglass VOC housing.
A decisive factor in the use of a fat separator is the fat concentration in the effluent above 100 mg / l. The principle of operation and cleaning methods are identical and do not depend on the type of fiberglass housing (vertical grease trap or horizontal). A significantly greater influence on the parameters of the finished product during design is exerted by the planned load on the equipment, installation possibilities, the volume of flow and the nature of the pollution.
Usually, the equipment is included in the design of the treatment system when designing a building or territory, but if necessary, a grease trap for sewage can be connected to a wastewater system already in operation.
Grease traps Helix are made in two design schemes: vertical and horizontal. The grease trap for the restaurant and the grease trap for the sink have an identical principle of operation and are similar in design.
During operation, the fat separator accumulates fatty products and various heavy fractions, which form a solid sediment and fatty film. To continue the operation of the equipment, the accumulated contamination must be removed. For this, as required, service measures are carried out to pump out the sludge and clean the grease trap.
To do this, you need to contact service organizations that will carry out the work by qualified specialists. For equipment of small dimensions, such work can be performed independently, under personal responsibility.
In this case, it is necessary to think over where the removed pollution will find its application. In some cases, the use of biological products is practiced to process contaminants into water or carbon dioxide, which allows less frequent servicing of the grease trap, eliminates odor and sediment.
