Do You Need to Remove Fats, Oils, & Grease from Wastewater?

Removing fats, oils, and grease from wastewater is a key concern for many businesses in the food industry. Through the course of these businesses’ work processes, the substances end up mixed in with water and need to be removed before the water can be dispensed into a municipal sewer system or reused within a facility.

With removing fats, oils, and grease being such a common need for businesses, many solutions exist for completing this task. One efficient option for businesses that have a small volume flow is a water washer, which is a self-contained machine that does a great job of removing these substances. Because of its relatively small size, a water washer is an especially good choice for businesses that can only afford to give up a limited amount of free space.

For businesses with a larger volume flow, a dissolved air flotation (DAF) system is a common choice. These systems operate a continuous basis utilizing the same micro-bubble principals noted above. In addition to substances like fats and oils, DAF systems can remove a host of other contaminants.
