The Heavy Duty Conveyor to Remove Fats, Oils and Greases
Fats, oils and greases (FOG) are becoming a major issue in sewerage networks. There are increasing regulations for process companies to treat this issue before discharge, particularly in the food processing industries. The Greasebuster™ Fat and Oil and Grease Skimmer innovates the process of fat and oil removal from waste water tanks and systems by using Hydrophobic Belts which attract fats, oils and greases but reject water.
Simple Effective Technology
Placed directly into the tank, the simple technology allows for effective removal of oils from the surface of the water using hydrophobic belt materials. This belt works continuously to lift FOG from the waste water whilst rejecting water. The FOG is then scrapped from the belt and deposited into a collection vessel for recovery.
In above ground tanks the Greasebuster can be attached to the wall of the tank and in underground tanks the flotation variant allows the Greasebuster to float in the tank and FOG is removed with an integral slurry pump to a surface collection vessel.
Prevention Is Cheaper than the Cure
By removing FOG at source, the Greasebuster offers many benefits that can produce lower effluent bills, reduce waste and prevent prosecution.
• Reduced COD and Suspended solids produce lower effluent bills.
• Compliance with discharge consents reduces risk of prosecution.
• Oil reclamation generates income.
• Prevention of seer blockages stops downstream cleaning costs.
• Produces a positive environmental impact.
Robust Technology and Control
The Greasebuster main frame is made of high chemical resistant and high temperature grade Polypropylene with stainless steel roller bearings. A programmable motor speed controller, 5.5KW invertor and 3-phase geared motor provide variable speed and both continuous and timed periodic running.
Heavy Duty grease and surface sludge Removal
The Greasebuster is highly effective at removing heavy duty sludge, often found in dairy and bakery waste where fats and creams are bound up with flour. These heavy type materials are easily removed and with the aid of an optional heater element flow freely into the collection vessel.
High Removal Capacity
The Greasebuster™ is manufactured in either 800mm or 1200mm belts which can remove up to 50m3 of FOG per day. The Greasebuster is specifically designed for large scale industrial use.
