Grease Traps

Grease traps are essential plumbing equipment for your kitchen, preventing the harmful buildup of waste materials. At REW, we provide the finest grease traps and related accessories you need to keep your plumbing sanitary and safe.

Grease Traps: An Overview
A grease trap or grease interceptor is a plumbing device that captures fats, oils, and grease (or FOG) that come from kitchen sinks. Typically, a grease trap is installed beneath the sink that it is intended to service.

When wastewater flows down the drain and into the trap, FOG, solids, and other smaller materials are separated from the water, which is allowed to proceed down the pipe. The other components are held inside the box-shaped trap. It is important to maintain and clean the trap regularly to avoid buildup and ensure its effectiveness. To learn more, research your local and/or state guidelines for grease trap maintenance and use.

Grease Traps vs. Grease Interceptors:
The functionality of grease traps and interceptors is the same, but their characteristics and use are slightly different. The term "grease trap" usually refers to smaller devices with smaller capacities. Grease traps are designed for low water pressure use and are installed indoors.

Conversely, "grease interceptors" are much larger, with larger carrying capacities. They are typically found outdoors. Unlike grease traps, interceptors can handle high water pressure and thus manage the separation of wastewater from FOG on a much larger scale. Interceptors must be maintained more frequently than traps.

Grease Trap/Interceptor Accessories:
We carry helpful accessories for use with your grease traps and/or interceptors. We sell grease trap seal replacements from BK Resources, compatible with all BK-GT grease traps and interceptors. You can specify the size of your trap or interceptor when you purchase, so we can get you exactly the seal that you need for your equipment.

We also sell access doors from Component Hardware. These accessories protect the ducts that your traps and interceptors clean. The doors are made to handle high temperatures and are extremely durable. We carry them in different sizes to best fit your needs.

Restaurant Equipment World has everything you need to run an effective foodservice or restaurant business, from grease traps to other plumbing equipment and beyond. When you call today, you'll receive expert professional help, advice, and guest service. Our talented representatives can help you find what you need based on your budget and specifications.
