Below you will find some helpful information regarding Grease Interceptors and the importance of them:

What is a Grease Interceptor?

  • A grease interceptor is a receptacle located between the drain lines and the sanitary sewer lines
  • It separates and collects fats, oils and greases (F.O.G.) from the wastewater to help keep harmful clog-causing debris out of the drain lines and City sewer system

Why do I need to have a Grease Interceptor?

  • The City of Hamilton, as well as most other municipalities, has imposed a minimum amount of F.O.G. that is acceptable in the wastewater leaving an establishment
  • It also helps to prevent F.O.G. from plugging up the drains and causing unnecessary damages

How Does it Work?

  • The interceptor slows down the water coming from the drains which allows the F.O.G. to cool
  • The water passes over a series of separator baffles that are designed to cause F.O.G. to separate from the wastewater
  • The cooled F.O.G. then rises to the top of the interceptor and accumulates until removed
  • The wastewater is now relieved of 90% or more of F.O.G. and can flow into the sewer system
