How the Grease-Release Works

The Grease-Release works on the basic principle that fats, oils & grease will float on water.

Grease-Release is designed to trap, direct and compress the floating fats, oils & greases into an area, so they can be easily forced out through a valve whilst creating strong upward hydro pressure.

The creation of the upwards water pressure is achieved by a series baffles & wears.

Waste water from sinks & dishwashers
Steam Ovens & wok stations enters ‘area one’
of the Grease Release unit.

As the water enters ‘area one’ the water
passes through a removable fine mesh
filter basket filtering out all the solids.

As more water enters the unit the
filtered water & grease in ‘area 1’ is
forced downwards into ‘area two’
where its directed under the diagonal baffle.

The floating trapped grease in ‘area
two’s’ diagonal baffle is directed into
‘area three’

As more floating grease enters ‘area 3’ the grease is
compressed in the tight spaced separation chamber
where upon the grease becomes visible in the
protruding sight glass.

As more floating grease enters ‘area
three’ it becomes compressed,
replacing and pushing the water out
and downwards.

As the trapped grease builds up in
'area three’ the clean degreased water
exits and flows under ‘area four’.

The floating fat's oils & grease’s trapped
in ‘area three’ are too light to flow under
the low baffle in ‘area four’.

The clean water exiting area four flows up and over
the extended outlet wear in area five.

The ‘area five’ wear creates the operating
water level within the tank.

The extended water operating height of the ‘area 5’
wear creates a strong upward water pressure in area’s
two & three.

As the grease valve is opened in ‘area three’ the upward
pressure created in ‘area two’ forces the compressed
grease out of the tank.

Ensuring only clean degreased water is discharged into the drainage system.
