Food preparation puts many materials into the drain system from a variety of sources including: food washing, cooking splatter / spillage, dishwashing, as well as equipment, wall, and floor cleaning. Food materials, especially Fats, Oils, Grease, that make their way into the drain system can contribute to wastewater collection difficulties as well as Significant problems for the Food Service business.
Whether fast food or sit down meals, food preparation puts many food materials into the drain system from a variety of sources. This may lead to line blockage, odor, excessive grease trap buildup and possibly fines. There are several concerns regarding excess grease; the impact of grease on the drain system (backups, odor), grease trap (frequent pump outs), and ultimately the effluent impact to the recipient. Also, the impact of high strength foodstuffs on the ability to meet effluent discharge standards for BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) and TSS (total suspended solids). In addition to potential surcharges and fines, the odor and poor performance of drains can hinder the operation of the food service establishment.
ENVIRONOC 301 microbes produce enzymes which digest not only fats, oils, and grease, but also starch and protein under a variety of temperature conditions. This means less line clogging, less grease trap pumping and lower BOD and TSS values in the effluent leaving the grease trap. Please contact us for more information and project examples.
