The ScrapTrapper solids separator captures scrap waste before it causes problems down line. Designed for compact fit beneath most commercial kitchen sinks, ScrapTrapper is a necessary tool to avoid drain backups, reduce grease trap loading, and to prevent the untimely service call. ScrapTrapper is an economical, effective solution for use after triple-sinks, prep sinks, pre-rinse sinks, dish wash areas, tilt kettles, bar sinks, coffee stations (grinds), beverage bars, and as a garbage disposal replacement.
The food solids prevented using ScrapTrapper no longer pile up in the grease trap. As a result, the grease trap can perform its primary function – trap grease. With reduced solids, the grease trap has “freed up” capacity which can translate to extended cleaning frequency and further savings for the operator (check with local pretreatment ordinance and trap cleaning code).
As a general rule, limiting solids to the grease trap is a beneficial practice and can lower measurable items like BOD (biological oxygen demand), TSS (total suspended solids), and even FOG in the effluent from a food service establishment (FSE). The addition of a ScrapTrapper(s) to commercial kitchen operations can assist efforts to meet local pretreatment wastewater requirements and, in some cases, reduce testing levels and fines. In all, cleaner wastewater is better for the environment and can also be better for the bottom line.
