Model DS10DGT & DS20DGT - Domestic Kitchen Grease Traps
As fats, oils and grease from your cooking cools, it hardens and congeals. It sticks to the inside of your drainage pipes, restricting the water flow and gradually blocking the drain. Using detergents or bleach may appear to help but it is only temporary as the mixture soon reverts back to thick or solid fat, forming a blockage further down the pipe. By installing a PPD Biomass Grease Trap close to your sink, you will be collecting and treating the grease before it has a chance to block your drains. Each PPD Biomass Grease Trap is primarily an efficient separator - the fats, grease and oil stay trapped on the surface and water is allowed to pass from the bottom of the trap, up through a dip-pipe out to the drain. Inside the Grease Trap, a PPD Bio-treatment dosing system creates and maintains a Biomass to eat the grease and oil converting it to mainly water and some CO2.
The PPD Domestic Kitchen Grease Trap is available in 2 sizes:
- Model DS10DGT is for up to 10 meals per day in an up to 4 person household with 1 domestic-size sink and 1 dishwasher connected.
- Model DS20DGT is for up to 20 meals per day in an up to 8 person household with up to 2 domestic-size sinks and 1 dishwasher connected.
We offer different dosing systems to create the Biomass inside the Domestic grease trap as follows:-
- System A: Manual BioFluid Dosing - a 1 litre bottle of Concentrated BioFluid with a hand pump on top - 2 squirts every night in the sink as the kitchen closes.
- System B: Automatic BioFluid dosing - a 240 volt or battery operated automatic dosing pump delivers a small amount of BioFluid from a separate container into the grease trap at 2 a.m. Every morning.
It is worthwhile noting that there are more than 12 bacteria strains used, all naturally occurring, harmless strains, chosen specifically for their ability to break down different types of fats and oils. They are also particularly beneficial to Septic tanks, sewage treatment plants and land-drain systems.
