The Advantages of Using a Halgan Passive Grease Trap

The Advantages of Passive Grease Traps

What is a Passive grease Trap

Passive grease traps, also known as grease interceptors, play a crucial role in maintaining the cleanliness and functionality of wastewater systems. These large tanks are specifically designed to retain wastewater to allow it to cool. By cooling down the wastewater the FOG (Fats,Oils,Greases) floats to the surface and other solid material, such as food scraps, sink to the bottom.
To be effective, grease traps must retain the fluid long enough for it to cool and for the FOG to float to the surface.


Why Halgan?

Compact | lightweight

  • Manufactured from polyethylene ensures our products are light weight, easy to transport and easy to install
  • Installation costs are considerably reduced as cranes or heavy haulage equipment are not required.

Easily transported

  • Lightweight units are easily transportable and can be installed in locations that are difficult to access. On site, units are easily handled and maneuvered.

Easily cleaned

  • The smooth wax-like surface of polyethylene products hinders the building up of coagulated oils and fats which allows for quick and through cleaning of units and minimal rinse water usage.

Durable, acid resistant, long life

  • Units are manufactured using the most modern and technically advanced rotomoulding equipment which ensures effective and efficient quality control throughout the manufacturing process
  • The polyethylene material used is chemically inert, non-porous and UV stabilised, and does not require additional acid resistant coatings required on most steel and concrete units.
  • Polyethylene offers better overall chemical resistance to corrosive acids, bases & salts, and is unaffected by bacteria, fungi or even aggressive naturally occurring soils
  • Polyethylene is highly durability against dents, cracks or breaks and has a projected life of over 50 years.

Units certified by Structural Engineer to Australian and New Zealand Standards in line with the industry’s best practice requirements.


Maintaining a Halgan Passive Grease Trap Tank

Proper maintenance of grease trap tanks is crucial to ensure their optimal performance and longevity. Here are some regular maintenance practices and long-term care tips for Halgan passive grease trap tanks.

Regular Maintenance Practices for Halgan Passive Grease Trap Tanks

To maintain high efficiency, passive grease traps require regular cleaning. Enzyme dosing contributes to biological grease treatment fluid, promoting sustainability. Periodic pump station maintenance ensures an optimal flow rate and grease recovery, while inspection of outlet baffle and collector bin prevents grease levels and solid debris build-up. Regular wastewater inspection is also necessary to ensure clear water flow through the grease trap. Easy Removal of the FOG (Fats Oil Grease) means more efficient maintenance cost.

Long-term Care for Halgan Passive Grease Trap Tanks

Long-term care of Halgan passive grease trap tanks involves regular removal of sludge and solid debris, promoting sustainability and cleaner water flow. The high strength steel construction of these grease traps ensures durability, reducing the need for repairs. Additionally, grease management systems, such as Halgan passive grease trap tanks, provide biological grease treatment, recycling vegetable oils and promoting sustainability. By implementing regular maintenance practices, food service establishments can prevent odours, blockages, and expensive repairs, ensuring the longevity of their grease trap systems.
