How do Grease Traps Work

How do Grease Traps Work

Restaurants and commercial kitchens produce large amounts of greasy water.  The water used to wash off kitchen utensils goes straight down the drain with the grease in it.  This is a huge problem for the septic tanks and sewers.  Grease traps are meant to fix this issue.

When the water from the sink flows down the drain, a grease trap is then meant to intercept this waste water from before hitting the drainage system.  The grease trap consists of a circular inlet and outlet which hooks up to the drainage pipes.  The water flows down the drain into the inlet of the grease trap.  The grease trap then separates the particles in the dirty water.  The solid food pieces sink to the bottom of the grease trap while the grease and oils float to the top due to their light weight nature.  The now clean water passes through the rest of the trap through the outlet and then continues its flow through the drainage system.  

Most townships throughout the countries require a grease trap to be installed.  There are many different size grease traps that can be used depending on the application.  Our grease traps we offer are made of heavy duty plastic which carry at 10 year warranty and are PDI Certified.  We offer free shipping on all products.

Commercial Kitchens are Starting to Use a Pre-Rinse Faucet, for Good Reasons

Commercial Kitchens are Starting to Use a Pre-Rinse Faucet, for Good Reasons

Sanitation is an essential component of a commercial kitchen operation or restaurant. Depending on the severity of contamination, it can make or break a business, given safety regulations and inspections. A cross-contamination in the kitchen can affect a person’s health and pose a serious threat that must be avoided. Many restaurants choose to ensure the cleanliness of their kitchenware by installing a high-quality, pre-rinse, kitchen faucet.

Avoid Regret by Getting a Pre-Rinse Faucet for Your Commercial Kitchen

It’s Effortless

A pre-rinse faucet typically comes with a high-arc spout and a spraying nozzle. What is so great about these? Actually, the best feature of a pre-rinse faucet is its high-pressure spraying nozzle that can be pulled out at your convenience.

The high water pressure can blast any type of residue off of a plate, which means you won’t need to manually scrub them with your hands and scrubbers or scouring pads. This also lightens the burden on your dishwashers, all while serving as an early preventive measure to stains that typically stick to plates, pots, pans, and other cooking implements.

It’s Efficient

Time is of the essence in a commercial kitchen or restaurant setting, especially to "turn tables" as they say in the restaurant biz. Because a pre-rinse faucet precludes time-intensive scrubbing and soaking, your kitchen staff can work faster and more efficiently.

Moreover, a cooking utensil washed by a pre-rinse faucet can come out cleaner than if it was washed by hand. This is because you can direct the nozzle directly toward and inside the nooks and crannies of any kitchen utensil. During the peak hours in restaurants, this quality makes a pre-rinse faucet indispensable. One of the worst nightmares for a fine restaurant is making a party wait at the table for it to be set with silverware, glasses, cups, and other dinnerware.

It’s Ergonomic

The commercial pre-rinse faucets sold on today’s market save a lot of space compared to old faucet types. A pre-rinse faucet doesn’t need a lot of space because it can be mounted on the backsplash of your kitchen sink. Its water lines can be safely stowed away behind the sink so that the kitchen staff doesn't trip over them. Usually, you can install more than one pre-rinse faucet in your kitchen area to speed up the cleaning process.

At the end of the day, installing a pre-rinse faucet serves a means for restaurants to raise their customer service as well as save time and money. Have one installed in your kitchen today to keep your restaurant clean and orderly.

Improve Your Customer Service and Efficiency by Installing a Commercial Pre-Rinse Faucet

Improve Your Customer Service and Efficiency by Installing a Commercial Pre-Rinse Faucet

When you own a restaurant that serves a high volume of diners every single day, what happens on the floor—even the kitchen floor—affects your ability to satisfy your customers.

A kitchen needs to meet the high demand of steady foot traffic which requires a staff to do their best work quickly. The kitchen is not just about stoves, ovens and food-prep appliances. Dishwashing equipment plays just as vital of a role. It’s what keeps the whole rotation of service rolling while ensuring that customers are not put off by a spot on their plate, bowl, or cup.

The Top Advantages of Having a Commercial Pre-Rinse Faucet Installed

Popular restaurants wade in mountains of servingware, dinnerware and cookware which must constantly rotate to keep the busy tables set. This is where an efficient dishwashing area proves vital to keeping customers satisfied. A commercial pre-rinse faucet in the dishwashing area, for example, can mean the difference between gaining and losing customers. It improves your restaurant's efficiency in several ways.

Built for Preventing Stains and Scrubbing

Unlike faucets of old, commercial pre-rinse faucets come with a high-arc spout and auxiliary, high-pressure, pull-out, spraying nozzle. Such a faucet actually blasts food off the plates to ease the burden of the main dishwasher, save time, and prevent stains from sticking to pots, pans and serving dishes.

It can Be Mounted a Couple of Ways

Today's commercial pre-rinse faucets require less space than faucets of old. They can even be installed at the perimeter of a kitchen area for use by bar staff or floor staff as well.

Commercial pre-rinse faucets require little hassle to install. Walls need not be torn down, nor does heavy equipment need moving. It can be mounted on nearly any wall space where your basin may fit. You can even replace your old basin's faucet with the pre-rinse one. The pre-rinse faucet is so space efficient that you can even install two or more in your kitchen area.

Add-Ons for Utility

Aside from the standard 8-inch high faucet, you can also opt for a pre-rinse faucet package that comes with a 12-inch auxiliary faucet. These faucets especially accommodate oversized pots, big roasting pans and mixer bowls. The extra length allows you to spray more than one such pan at a time.

It Can Make Kitchen Experiments More Manageable

Is your chef an after-hours experimenter? After your establishment is closed, your dishwashing staff usually disappears. If your chef should want to stick around to create new dishes, he or she can use a commercial pre-rinse faucet with ease when dirtying up pots or pans. Your dishwashers will appreciate it the next day.

For all these reasons and more, installing a commercial pre-rinse faucet amounts to raising the customer-service bar within your restaurant and your staff. Meanwhile, it lessens the toil for your staff in the kitchen and on the floor, which results in more smiles—something sure to help you build your customer base as well.

Enjoy the Benefits of Using a Pre Rinse Kitchen Faucet for Commercial Establishments

If you’re working in a restaurant kitchen, cleaning as you go is an integral part of keeping order. Given the fact that you’re handling food on a regular basis, there’s no question about how important it is to keep the surfaces and your hands clean.

Cross-contamination is a serious threat that must be avoided, or it could lead to serious health repercussions for whoever will be unfortunate enough to come across that particular food item. One of the best ways to ensure cleanliness in the kitchen is by having a well-designed sink and faucet. If you’re looking for an upgrade for your commercial kitchen, you should consider installing a pre-rinse kitchen faucet.

Benefits of Installing a Pre Rinse Kitchen Faucet for Commercial Use

Unique Design

What makes pre-rinse kitchen faucets unique from the conventional types you’re probably familiar with is that it features a high-pressure nozzle attached to a high-arc spout. This is actually highly recommended for commercial kitchens, because it allows the dishwasher to blast water away at the dishes quickly.

Ergonomic Use

What’s convenient about this type of faucet is that the water lines can be tucked away either under the counter or on a deck mount. Because of its spring-like cable, it can also be used as a handheld faucet, reaching farther down the counters so that it can also be given a thorough clean. Of course, how you maximize this feature is ultimately going to depend on your kitchen counter design, but at least the functionality is there should you ever need it.

Faster Results

Its high pressure spray also allows you to clean the dishes easily. It’s like having your very own power washer, but specifically made even for the most delicate dishware. Because it can be handheld, you can direct the nozzle directly towards hard to reach areas, like the bottom of a tall pitcher or large pots or pans, to get the stains and grease out faster.

This feature can come handy during peak hours in restaurants, when dishes tend to fly in and out of the kitchen. The faucet is going to help the dishwashers and cleaners work a lot faster, since they’ll need to scrub less as the high-pressure water does most of the cleaning. These kinds of faucets are made of high quality material, which practically guarantees its longevity and ensuring its status as a prime investment you should get when you upgrade your commercial kitchen.

Suppliers like AT Faucet can help you pick the right type of pre-rinse faucet for your kitchen that would benefit you the most. Consult with the pros to make the right upgrade choice.
