Grease digester helps keep restaurant drainline clear

Problem: The owner of a Menasha, Wisconsin, restaurant saw his system backing up into the three-compartment sink every five weeks. The drainline would be plugged and the restaurant would close early to clean up the foul-smelling mess. This resulted in a loss of business and compromised sanitary conditions.

Solution: Speedy Clean Drain and Sewer completed a thorough cleaning of the 50-gallon indoor grease trap. They installed one Trap-Cleer dosing pump injection system from Lenzyme/Trap-Cleer into the mainline located under the three-compartment sink feeding into the grease trap. Liquid Trap-Cleer was dosed in at 2 ounces per evening. It is designed to keep the system flowing properly and consume much of the grease, extending the time between clean-outs and servicing.

Result: After several months the system continued to operate normally. Only a small amount of grease built up in the trap. The restaurant hasn’t shut down and the odors disappeared. The trap required pumping after eight months. Based on a recommendation to clean the system when the grease level reaches one-third capacity, the restaurant scheduled cleanings on a four-month interval. 800/223-3083;

Grease digester solves odor issues at golf course

Problem: Foul odors were emitting from three combined sewer manhole units 25 feet away from the 18th green and 75 feet from the outside dining facility of a Detroit-area country club. The combined sewers had grease, food waste, sludge and human waste multiple feet thick. The area downstream had to be pumped regularly by the municipality. Members and guests alike were offended by the odor, which was also present inside the clubhouse.

Solution: The Eco-Drain System Company stepped in with a protocol designed to eliminate the problem using a BioForce Heavy Duty Grease Digester from Chempace Corporation. The sewers were dosed daily in addition to treatment in the building interior.

Result: After 10 days, less water and less sludge was reported in the sewers. The odor was also dissipating. A visit 45 days later confirmed the solution was working. 800/423-5350;
