Two phase Grease Separation

To allow kitchen staff to focus on cooking, seamless grease management needs to be in place. Commercial kitchens unintentionally dispose of food waste down the drain when using sinks, cleaning dishes or equipment. One of the main wastes are fats, oils and greases (FOG) used or produced during cooking, which once in the drain can become solid.

This causes blocked drains and sewers, and is a significant problem for kitchen operators and local municipalities – the infamous FatBerg! Wastewater is trapped in the building! To combat the problem industry standard grease separators (EN 1825) are used to remove and collect FOG before it enters the sewer. This is 1 phase cleaning.

The drain can block before it gets into the EN grease separator. That´s why kitchen drain also need to be protected from the unwanted smells, bockages by kitchen installed grease removal unit or grease trap. This is 2 phase cleaning. ACO provides a complete grease separation solution from sink to sewer. The industry standard is to protect the sewer network, but ACO goes a step further to protect the building itself, ACO two phase separation
