Grease separators for all applications
We supply the right grease separators for every application. This way we always offer the best drainage solution. Can be delivered quickly and almost always from stock. We supply the following types of grease separators:
- Grease separators (or grease pits, grease traps) to separate sludge, food residues and grease. These separators are suitable for kitchens of restaurants, snack bars, hotels, nursing homes, hospitals, (company) canteens, (confectionery) bakeries, butcher shops and the food industry.
- Control/sampling wells
- sludge traps
ACO grease separators are distinguished by the KOMO quality mark. These grease separators meet requirements specifically drawn up for the Dutch market, such as sludge and grease trap volume. Many clients apply this requirement in addition to the minimum requirement of NEN EN 1825.
In addition to the grease separators, we also supply accessories such as alarm systems that warn you when the maximum fat collection and/or backflow in the grease separator has been reached.
Animal and vegetable fats, oils and sludge in the sewer can have unpleasant consequences. For example, the sewerage can become clogged with all the consequences that entails. Cleaning a sewer again costs a lot of money and when grease and sludge continue to get in, the problem of blockage keeps coming back. It is therefore necessary to prevent this. This is especially important in areas where there is a lot of kitchen use, such as restaurants, nursing homes, butchers, schools and swimming pools. It is even legally laid down in the Environmental Management Activities Decree that certain sectors must separate their wastewater from fats and sludge. This can be done by installing grease separators.
How do grease separators work?
The operation of the grease separators is quite easy. The operation is based on gravity. The waste water that is discharged from a kitchen, for example, ends up in the grease separator. These grease separators can be in the ground, but there are also grease separators that have a free arrangement in a cellar or other space in the building. The heavier parts of the fat and oils will sink to the bottom and form a layer of sludge there. Fat itself has a lower density than water, so it will float to the surface and solidify. The water is then discharged to the sewer via the outlet of the grease separator. Not much can go wrong during this separation process. However, over time the layer of sludge and the layer of fat will come closer together. There is almost no room left for the water and the current will be much slower. This is the sign that the separator needs to be cleaned. Grease separators can consist of different materials. If you need a large grease trap built into the ground, it is advisable to use one made of concrete or polyethylene (PE). Diederen Afwateringstechniek can supply you with grease separators in all sizes. A grease separator made of stainless steel is also possible. It is important to determine the capacity and the arrangement before purchasing a grease separator.
