Many cities across Canada, like Toronto, Vancouver, and Edmonton, now have certain laws that may require grease traps (also known as grease interceptors). So you'll find these grease trapping machines in many commercial kitchens, for their fats, oils, and grease. To know how big of a grease trap you need, fill out this easy grease trap size calculator (on another's website).
The two primary considerations when choosing what size grease trap you need is the capacity and the GPM (the volumentric flow rate of Gallons Per Minute) that the grease trap can accept. To be able to calculate the size of a grease interceptor you need, you either need a PHD in astrophysics, or to just fill out the simple form we linked to above :)
You'll also want to consider the size and material of your grease trap. A plastic interceptor can be easier to instal because of its lighter weight, and it won't rust or corrode. But a metal grease trap could be better if you've got a really heavy duty commercial kitchen with a lot of grease. And the size of the grease trap is important for installation reasons obvioulsy, and it will affect the capacity.
If you're not sure which grease trap to buy, we'd love to help you out in picking one. So just give us a call or send us a message.
