Fat, Oil and Grease (FOG) is a major issue affecting Food Service Establishments (FSEs) and the Water Industry. When preparing / cooking / clearing up food, every FSE produces FOG  which needs to be properly managed.

How GreaseBeta can keep you compliant with legislation and your drain lines blockage free

FOG disposed of down sinks or directly from ovens and dishwashers may flow away easily and appear harmless but as it cools, it congeals and hardens within the drainage system, resulting in internal and external blockages.

Detergents break up fats temporarily, but the solution reverts to solid fat in the drains. Once this happens, the fat sticks to the inner surface of the drainage pipes and restricts water flow, causing the pipe to block. The result is overflowing sewers, odour problems and a greater risk of vermin.

Blockages build up over time and can occur further down the drainage run, affecting neighbouring premises. Apart from the inconvenience, financial cost, fines and hygiene risks associated with drain and sewer blockages, they can damage the reputation of a food business.

Implications for business

  • Prosecution/recharges from the water industry
  • Increased costs of dealing with blocked drains and floods
  • Damage in reputation and premises closure whilst blockages are dealt with
  • Damage caused to the environment through flooding into streets, homes and businesses and contamination of waterways

Sources of FOG:
1 Food prep sinks
2 Combi ovens
3 Dishwashers
4 Floor gulleys
5 Pot wash sinks

There are approximately
366,000
UK sewer blockage
call-outs each year

Over
200,000
pipe blockages occur in commercial premises each year

In some areas of the UK
75%
of pipe blockages
are caused by FOG
