Biological Grease Treatment

Biological grease treatment uses natures own technology to break down fat, oil and grease - naturally.

About Biological Grease Treatment

Traditionally, the only way to manage fat, oil and grease from a commercial kitchen was to use a conventional grease trap fitted inside the kitchen or externally.

However, in recent years advances in biotechnology have led to the identification of naturally occurring microorganisms which have the ability to attack and degrade grease particles.

Regular treatment of the drainage system (or a connecting grease trap) using biological additives creates a living culture of bacteria which work to break down fat, oil and grease throughout the day.

Filta have been at the forefront of biological grease treatment since 1998. We have provided systems for a wide range of commercial catering applications including:

  • Leading pub groups
  • Leading restaurant operators
  • Independent restaurants
  • Supermarkets
  • Airports
  • Schools and universities
  • Hospitals
  • Golf clubs
  • Care homes

How biological grease treatment work

The treatment process work in two stages - firstly, enzymes break down the grease particles into smaller molecules, then specially selected bacteria latch onto and break down the grease particles to their core components, ultimately to water and carbon dioxide.

Grease is essentially a mixture of long-chain fatty acids and glycerol.

C-g-C-l-C-y-C- c-C-e-C-r-C- o-C- l-C

Biological treatment work by first using enzymes to strip down the bond between the glycerol and the fatty acids.

This reduces the matter into smaller more digestible particles.

The specially selected bacteria then latch onto and degrade the grease deposits, reducing them to their core components – water and carbon dioxide.

Filta supply a range of biological grease treatment products which incorporate high-performance cultures of microorganisms for use in a variety of applications.

Applications

Filta's grease treatment products have been rigorously tested in the field to ensure a high level of performance. All products contain both enzymes and selected bacteria so they not only emulsify grease but break it down completely.

Filta provide biological treatment products for applications including:

  • Kitchen gulley treatment
  • Grease trap treatment
  • Stand-alone drain treatment (in-place of a grease trap)
  • Pumping station treatment

Maintenance

Biological treatment relies on regular replacement of the bioproduct to maintain performance. To ensure continuity and optimum performance, the majority of our customer's set up a service contract where we automatically replenish the bioproduct as part of our 'managed' service. Alternatively, you can purchase online or over the phone when required.

Commitment to Quality

Filta's grease treatment products have been rigorously tested in the field to ensure a high level of performance. All products contain both enzymes and selected bacteria so they not only emulsify grease but break it down completely. Filta's biological products feature multi-strain bacteria, so they are able to tackle many grease types. All products are tested and certified as containing no pathogens or carcinogens.
