A new high-performance grease removal and recovery solution with ultra-low running costs is set to spell the end of blocked drains and emergency call-outs for commercial kitchens. FEJ explores what makes it unique.
As the world’s first hydro cyclonic-enhanced GRU with eight independent hydro cyclones, the GreaseMaster Cyclone offers unique two-stage FOG separation and recovery to deliver industry-leading grease removal levels.
The system is estimated to remove in the region of 2,000 litres of oil from sink waste every year, and the recovered oil can then be repurposed for biofuel.
In addition, the ultra-high performance system removes over 99.9% of oil carried in the waste effluent and protects against drain blockages or water company compliance.
Keeping you compliant
With poor understanding of the issue and concerns over how to correctly specify solutions, an increasing number of operators are facing prosecutions and steep fines for complacency, from health and safety inspectors and from water companies.
Research shows more than 70% of drain blockages and back-ups within a commercial kitchen are caused by the build-up of FOG generated from washing pots, pans and plates.
The potential costs go beyond compliance, because drain blockages often need emergency call-outs with bills, not to mention the risk of further complications elsewhere in the water system.
Raising the standard
Edward Palin, commercial director for Filta Group, said: “This is a truly revolutionary product which sets a new standard for grease recovery units. The Cyclone unit is the result of input from engineers across the Filta business.
“It has been 15 years in the making to create a unit that takes the best technology and design principles and addresses the shortfalls of other units on the market.
“Suitable for drainage systems, dishwashers and pot wash areas, rotisserie ovens and combi ovens, the GreaseMaster Cyclone de-waters and filters out food waste to reduce drain blockages, and can save on power costs when compared with other units.
“At a time when regulations are becoming increasingly stringent, it provides a trusted, all-encompassing solution — all with the backing of a company which has been at the forefront of innovation in grease management for nearly 20 years.”
