Bacteria for Grease Traps
The product is used as a natural biological treatment in a process of progressive digestion of mineral oils, fat, fatty matter. It is used as an alternative to avoid pipe clogging and helps reduce viscosity when pumping. The product can be used in the following dosages.
It is a powerful environmental inoculant special to be used in grease traps and drain lines of the food industry. The product has facultative strains of beneficial live bacteria, with different capacities for the degradation of: animal and vegetable fat, proteins, starches and cellulose. It controls bad odors because it degrades hydrogen sulfide. It reduces the accumulation of grease in the traps and prevents clogging of the pipes.
The product efficiently breaks down other compounds such as proteins and sugars that cause odor when they accumulate and break down inside pipes.
Benefits of Using Bacteria for Grease Traps
- Reduces the need for frequent cleaning.
- Decreases the accumulation of fat.
- Control odors.
- Avoid clogging the drain lines.
- Facilitates cleaning tasks.
- Improves the quality of discharged water.
Why control fats?
In most places where food is prepared, an enormous amount of waste is generated that is discharged by the siphons, causing various problems such as:
- Excessive fat accumulation.
- Need for frequent cleaning of the traps.
- Bad smells.
- Plugged drains.
These effects have a negative impact on business productivity, not only because of the labor required to perform cleaning tasks, but also because of the possibility of a blockage occurring that can only be resolved by replacing the pipe. Likewise, the odors that arise from the decomposition of organic matter that accumulates inside the drainage systems can be very offensive, both for the establishment’s staff and for the clients.
How does it work?
Regular application ensures the addition of billions of bacteria that quickly and safely break down fats and other compounds that accumulate in drain lines. Once the inoculation or application is carried out, a colonization process begins in the different parts of the system such as the walls of the traps, the passage boxes and the surfaces of the pipes, forming a microenvironment (such as a biofilm) that prevents the fats and organic matter accumulate again. In this way the pipes will remain free of obstructions, the odors will be controlled and the cleaning tasks of the traps will be simplified.
For these benefits to be maintained over time, it is necessary that the applications of the bacteria are carried out on a regular basis. Some chemical agents such as soaps and disinfectants or physical agents such as hot water, partially affect the population of bacteria. For this reason, it is important to make regular applications that help to replenish the populations of microorganisms.
