Oil-filtration and separation experts Filta Group is raising the bar in the field of Grease Recovery Units (GRUs) with the launch of a ground-breaking new solution.
The GreaseMaster Cyclone delivers industry-leading levels of fat, oil and grease (FOG) separation whilst using less energy than traditional GRUs and thanks to its unique design is near odour-free.
Billed as the next generation of GRUs for large catering outlets, it addresses all the concerns of existing technologies after 15 years in development, designed by engineers working directly in the field. The GreaseMaster Cyclone allows operators to meet their obligations with a host of added benefits.
High performance grease removal and recovery with ultra-low running costs and no odours
As the world’s first Hydro Cyclonic enhanced GRU with eight independent Hydro Cyclones, the GreaseMaster Cyclone offers unique two-stage FOG separation and recovery to deliver industry-leading grease removal levels.
With an estimated removal of in the region of 2,000 litres of oil from sink waste every year, the recovered oil can be re-purposed for biofuel. In addition, the ultra-high performance system removes over 99.9% of oil carried in the waste effluent and protects against drain blockages or water company compliance.
Keeping you compliant
Under the Water Industry Act (1999), sites are required to install grease separation or removal equipment to prevent it from entering drains or sewers. With poor understanding of the issue and concerns over how to correctly specify solutions, an increasing number of operators are facing prosecutions and steep fines for complacency from health and safety inspectors and from water companies.
Research shows more than 70% of drain blockages and backups within a commercial kitchen are caused by the build-up of FOG generated from washing pots, pans and plates. The potential costs go beyond compliance, because drain blockages often need emergency call-outs with bills, not to mention the risk of further complications elsewhere in the water system.
Raising the standard
Edward Palin, commercial director for Filta Group, said: “This is a truly revolutionary product which sets a new standard for grease recovery units. The Cyclone unit is the result of input from engineers across the Filta business. It has been 15 years in the making to create a unit that takes the best technology and design principles and addresses the short-falls of other units on the market.
“Suitable for drainage systems, dishwashers/pot wash areas, rotisserie ovens and combi ovens, the GreaseMaster Cyclone de-waters and filters out food waste to reduce drain blockages and can save on power costs when compared with other units. At a time when regulations are becoming increasingly stringent, it provides a trusted, all-encompassing solution – all with the backing of a company which has been at the forefront of innovation in grease management for nearly 20 years.”
