Filtra-Traps are manufactured from high grade rust free stainless steel. Unlike plastics and epoxy painted mild steel, stainless steel is highly resilient and will not crack, distort or leak with extreme high and low temperatures from water discharged from commercial sinks & dishwashers.
Strong enough to take the daily knocks & scrapes of a commercial kitchen environment. Filtra-Traps are fitted with a removable 304 grade stainless steel filter which is chemical resistant and will not tear with sharp objects such as broken glass & cutlery.
Clearflow are leaders in grease trap design and technologies and sell Filtra-Traps® direct. Cutting out the middlemen and keeping to your budgets. Traditional grease traps require high amounts of outside maintenance, as they need emptying on a regular basis. The contents of these traps are a mixture of food particles & grease.
As the traps fills with these contaminants the discharge water quality diminishes. Filtra-Traps however, can be self maintained, as the vast majority of the traps contents (solidified grease and food particles) are removed by the filtration basket. The remaining filtered surface oil & fat can then be simply removed manually with a jug, and be disposed of in the sites waste oil receptacles. The result is a continuous higher quality water discharge.
Enzymes systems are expensive and only effective when dosed into grease traps, and can be employed in conjunction with Filtra-Traps. However be aware of claims that enzymes will fully consume grease. Adding hot soapy water can be just as effective!
Filtra-Traps are sensibly sized for maximum grease retention time. Retention time is the time which grease will rise to the surface, this can only be achieved by adequate sizing. Installing a undersized grease trap will not allow grease time to rise & settle, and may all so result in building inspectors rejecting the trap.
An open out-let chamber ensures the operator & water company inspector can at all times visibly see the outlet water quality. Filtra-Traps are delivered fully assembled and could not be easier to install. Just connect the pipe run from the sinks and dishwasher to the Filtra-Trap inlet. Then pipe the Filtra-Trap outlet directly to drain.
