Grease Traps

Grease Traps

Accepta’s range of high performance stainless steel grease traps have been developed to be robust, reliable and to significantly improve the performance of domestic, commercial and industrial drainage systems by minimising the problems caused by the unwanted accumulation of waste solids, fats, oil and grease.

Each Accepta grease trap is constructed from high quality stainless steel and incorporates an innovative stainless steel mesh system that acts to effectively filter out solid organic waste before it enters the drainage system, minimising its impact on drains, pipes, interceptors and wastewater discharge quality.

How do Accepta Grease Traps Work?

Accepta’s high performance stainless steel filtration system which is an integral component of each unit removes most solid matter from the wastewater before it enters the drainage system.

As the wastewater enters the trap, lighter grease, fats and oils separate and float on the water, whilst solid particles settle to the bottom of the filter cassette.

As the wastewater drains, it is drawn through the filter cassette, which helps to reduce any turbulence and filters out even more solid waste material.

The wastewater is then drawn up through the integrated air trap into the main drainage system.


The cleaning cycle will depend on the volume of material running through the filter. Cleaning operations should be carried out only when the trap is cold. We generally recommend that the filter is cleaned at the start of each working day, after the grease and fat deposits have solidified overnight.


The cleaning cycle for each trap depends on the volume of use. Cleaning should only be carried out at the start of the working day when system is cold.

The suggested cleaning procedure is as follows:

Stage 1
Unclip the lid, remove lid, wipe the lid clean and set aside.

Stage 2
Using a sieve skim out accumulated grease and fat.

Proceed to Stage 5 if using Accepta7141 (Grease Trap Cleaner) and pump dosing system.

Stage 3
Open low level drain valve (if fitted) and drain the unit.

Stage 4
Close low level drain valve (if fitted).

Stage 5
Lift out filter cassette (basket), empty and clean.

Proceed to Stage 7 if using Accepta 7141 and dosing system.

Stage 6
Flush out the unit with hot soapy water. DO NOT use bleach products if using Accepta 7141.

Stage 7
Refit the filter cassette (basket).

Stage 8
Replace the lid, clips, closing the side clips first, and then the clips at the pipe ends.

Automatic Dosing System

Accepta recommend that their stainless steel filtered grease traps are used in conjunction with Accepta 7141 and the specially designed dosing system.

Accepta 7141 significantly improves operational efficiency and has several significant benefits.

Either mains or battery operated, Accepta’s dosing system automatically dispenses a measured amount of Accepta 7141, either manually or automatically at preset times – normally after hours, when the grease and fat deposits have solidified.

The use of Accepta 7141 with the automatic dosing pump significantly accelerates the rate of grease/fat digestion helping to improve performance, reduce odours and the accumulation of grease, fats and oils in the system.
