We were approached by R-Tec Services and Innovation to supply a GRU that could support a leading fast food operators’ mobile food truck at outdoor festivals and events. They used two rational combi-ovens to produce food on site. The GRU would have to cope with the high volume of grease produced by the combi-ovens. Due to the high traffic from event-goers the unit had to have no or negligible maintenance during the day while being effective in grease separation and oil recovery.
We took on the challenge and enlisted the help of our engineering team to build a bespoke self-maintaining unit. Filta already had a solution to support combi-ovens, however, there was still the challenge to make it self-maintaining and autonomous. The LLC AUTO was born with an automated oil removal system from the FOG collection container so there was no daily maintenance required. The recovered oil is pumped into an oil collection barrel which is emptied at the end of the day.
The result is that the client is able to sustainably separate the grease from wastewater and recover oil that could effectively be recycled into biodiesel, thereby supporting the circular economy.
