FOG is a common problem that plagues grease traps and lift stations. Without correct treatment, facilities can easily become overwhelmed and suffer with blockages, back-ups and foul odours as well as discharge to the environment, leading to fines and wastewater charges.
With exclusive, patented formulations designed to tackle FOG, your facility is in great hands with our wastewater experts here at NCH.

Stop Grease Trap blockages with exclusive solutions from NCH Wastewater
Grease traps are designed to separate and capture waste grease and solids before they enter the wastewater stream. They are used to reduce the amount of FOG that enters the main wastewater system. High FOG volumes can quickly overwhelm treatment facilities resulting in discharge to the environment, blockages, back-ups and foul odours.
All grease traps consist of a large tank. Water from the drain flows into the tank and settles. Solids sink to the bottom, while lightweight grease floats to the top; leaving clear water in the middle. The water flows through to a second tank and discharges to the sewer system through a small pipe. Many have baffles or screens to trap debris and large chunks of material as they flow into the tank.
When a significant layer of grease has accumulated the trap must be cleaned out. If grease escapes into the sewer, it can cause a number of problems. Many types of grease and wax can solidify at low temperatures and form plugs in the line, forcing workers to clear the plumbing line after it starts to clog.
To stop blockages and keep grease traps in optimal working condition, it is important the right solution is used. At NCH Wastewater, we have the solution you need!
Using a combination of engineering and microbiology, our range of BioAmp systems deliver live bacteria, which begin feeding and multiplying the instant they enter your drains; easily reducing the level of FOG.
Avoid costly Lift Station pump replacement with NCH Wastewater
Reduce grease build-up and cut costs with NCH Wastewater. Lift stations push wastewater from a lower elevation to a higher elevation.
Grease build-up is a common problem associated with lift stations. It reduces waste holding capacity and increases costs dramatically. If grease builds-up on the float it will cause waste overflow and result in the breakdown of pumps.
A high build-up of grease allows waste to accumulate and decompose, causing strong odours. Lift stations with excessive grease build-up results in labour intensive cleaning and expensive pump replacements.
Cleaning a lift station can be dangerous; there is a risk of injury to workers and hydrogen sulphide gas build-up can occur.
NCH Wastewater will take care of your lift station cleaning needs. Our advanced biological solutions will remove the build-up of FOG and eliminate odours in the process; resulting in a reduction of fines, saving you both time and money.
Don’t put yourself at risk! Costly fines, employee safely and business downtime; there’s a lot on the line if your lift station stops functioning. Don’t let it happen, get expert help from NCH Wastewater.
