Grease Trap Cleaning
Jones Pump Service offers grease trap cleaning to foodservice clients and restaurants in Harford County, Baltimore County and Cecil County. Grease trap or grease interceptor cleaning is a cost of doing business. How often you need grease interceptor cleaning depends on a number of things. Those include the size of your facility, the number of people served, the type of food served, and more. We offer service contracts for your convenience.
How a Grease Trap Works
The purpose of a grease trap is to prevent grease and food solids from entering the sewer system. It captures everything that goes down the drain (mostly water) in the main separation basin. The water in the trap cools the grease to room temperature, causing the grease to solidify. Because the grease is lighter than water, it floats to the top and is “trapped.” The food solids, which are heavier than water, sink to the bottom.
The cleaner water flows through a pipe into the secondary separation basin. Any grease left over after the majority is trapped in the first basin is captured in the “secondary” creating a second separation.
Then the clean water flows into the sewer system, leaving the fats, oils and grease (FOG) in the grease trap.
