Grease interceptors are designed to prevent greasy substances from entering plumbing systems, septic fields and wastewater treatment facilities, where they are difficult to process and can create a number of environmental problems. Grease interceptors are commonly specified in restaurant kitchens and food handling or processing areas to keep drainage systems free of problematic grease accumulations.
Grease interceptors work by collecting all lighter than water substances, such as grease, inside the interceptor. This is accomplished through the use of a flow restrictor on the inlet side of the interceptor, which slows incoming effluent and redirects it through baffling inside the interceptor. This slowing and baffling process allows lighter than water substances to accumulate inside the interceptor above the static water line.
