A grease trap, also known as a grease interceptor or grease recovery device, is an essential component of plumbing systems, particularly in commercial kitchens and food establishments. Its primary purpose is to prevent fats, oils, and grease (commonly referred to as FOG) from entering the sewer system and causing blockages or environmental contamination. Grease traps are designed to capture and separate FOG from wastewater, allowing the clean water to flow freely into the drainage system while trapping the grease for proper disposal.
