Water flows in the food and catering industries, schools, hospitals and butcheries are generally polluted with fats, oils and greases. The primary step to removing these pollutions from the water is by using grease separators.

 

Grease separators and sludge traps are widely used in areas where professional preparation of food takes place, e.g. hotels, restaurants, canteens, elderly centres, hospitals etc., or in companies where greases and oils of vegetable and animal origin may contaminate the water effluent, like in butcheries, soap and stearine factories, oil mills, margarine and vegetable oil factories or fast-food preparation plants.

 

According to the European environmental regulations, a grease separator should be applied in the following situations:

  • When preparing food items
  • When slaughtering animals
  • In the internal cleaning and disinfecting of trucks and other means of transport which have contained unpackaged meats

 

As such a grease separator is applicable in the majority of the areas mentioned above.  In the choice of a grease separator, it is important that the separator should meet the European standard for grease separators: the NEN-EN 1825. Only grease separators following this norm can be used. A second important criterion is determining the right capacity in accordance with this standard. Lastly good and timely maintenance is important. These three items will be checked upon inspection by the authorities.

 

ESEP delivers a wide array of grease separators in both concrete and HDPE. With our own production and design we are able to quickly produce custom separators, which of course follow the applicable standard and have a correctly calculated capacity.

 

The ESEP systems are characterized by their smart methods, which result in the right balance between performance, footprint and investment.

 

After the grease separator, which is generally used as the primary treatment, there are ways to further treat the water, for instance by sieving, filtration or a physical-chemical treatment.

 

In addition, treatment and control of (waste) water by means of drain gutters and pumping installations are possible.
