Self-Cleaning System for Grease traps

The S.T.S systems

Wastewater from institutional catering kitchens contains a lot of grease and other organic waste such as starch or proteins. Their hydrophobic characteristic requires physical treatment to separate grease from water with a grease trap. This treatment produces large amounts of grease that need to be evacuated regularly.

The S.T.S system is the perfect solution to maintain your grease trap clean and efficient.

Traditional grease traps are passive separation and retention vessels, which require regular pumping maintenance to remain operational. In restaurants, grease trap pumping is processed as best as possible, every three to four months, whereas the European Standard NF EN 1825-2 (November 2002) requires monthly pumping. Besides the issues water treatment plants and sanitation services may encounter with the growing problem of grease released in the sewage systems, the lack of maintenance on a grease trap may lead to internal malfunction such as drain or pipe clogging, and foul odor release.

Highlights of the system:

  • No regular draining process
  • No unexpected unclogging action
  • No foul odorEnvironmental friendly with a biodegradable agent
  • Low power consumption
  • Water saving during pumping process
  • Improved grease trap hygiene (no fermentation)
  • Suitable for any existing grease trap

The S.T.S Element’air system can be installed on any kind of existing grease trap or pumping station.

S.T.S operating principle:

The exceptional efficiency of the S.T.S process is a result of the bacterial concentrate’s operation.

The Bio-ST. Element’air agent is automatically discharged each night via a set ventilation device located in the grease trap. This device literally turns the grease trap into a bioreactor that could be found in the largest water treatment plants.

The S.T.S system enables to reduce immensely and even to suppress pumping processes, as they are no longer required to absorb solid and inorganic waste that could not have been caught before effluents entered the grease trap.
