Fat skimming solution lightens the organic load

25 September 2016

The Smart Storm Greasebuster fat skimmer is designed for the removal of fats, oils and greases from wastewater effluent streams. 

Fats, oils and grease (FOG) is a particular problem for many food processors where it can cause blocked drains and increases the organic load of effluent which increases effluent charges and can affect a factory’s legal consent to discharge. 

The Greasebuster solution utilises a hydrophobic belt which attracts FOG but rejects water. Placing the unit in a reception tank will allow FOG to be removed from the waste stream while the water runs back into the tank.

For oil applications almost 100% oil extraction is possible which, once recovered can be sent for reprocessing. 

The system is able to easily remove floating heavy fats and grease solids bound up in fats and grease, which is a problem for many bakeries. The Greasebuster includes a thermostatically controlled heater which melts the fats and grease allowing it to flow freely into collection vessels. Speed control and belt attack angle are adjustable to maximise the efficiency of FOG removal.
