Know your Weather

A Grease Interceptor is a passive control device that is designed to help reduce fats, oils, greases, and solids from entering the sanitary sewer and treatment systems.

Grease Interceptors hold the fats, oils, greases, and solids until they can be removed and disposed of by recycling, rendering or land application.

  • Grease interceptors allow wastewater flows to slow down.
  • With sufficient time fats, oils, greases, and solids separate from wastewater.
  • Fats, oils, and greases are less dense than water and float.
  • Solids are denser than water and sink.

Regional plumbing inspectors are familiar with Lake Shore Burial Vault's Grease Interceptors or Grease Traps, as they are also known, and they know your building quality into the job.
