Kingspan will showcase its range of grease management and food waste digesting products, for the first time, at this year’s Commercial Kitchen trade show.
On stand F29 at the Birmingham NEC on 5-6 June the manufacturer will highlight its SmartServ Grease solution, featuring a ‘Trapzilla’, a grease trap and a grease trap effluent probe.
SmartServ is designed to reduce FOG output while providing remote monitoring capabilities and service plans.
Trapzilla is claimed to capture up to 95% of grease waste, said to be an improvement over existing technology which traps 25% of the grease. It should hold FOG with little water, making it efficient and reducing the frequency of pump outs. The unit is said to be is small and light in weight and easily installed or retrofitted into existing trap trenches.
Furthermore, the sensor probe and control panel should identify when the grease trap is full and provides alerts to owners via email and text alerts. It maps grease traps in multiple locations onto a remote hosting platform, which should give users full visibility and control of their assets.
Stand visitors will also see the Waste2-O, said to be an alternative to macerating or composting food waste. The bio-digester can be used in establishments serving 300-400 meals per day. Food is loaded into the top of the unit and a formulation of micro-organisms should digest it, producing a neutral greywater solution.
One unit can turn 180kg of food into waste water, suitable for discharging through the drain, in 24 hours, which could remove the need to send it to landfill.
Finally, Kingspan will also display the IFOG outlet-pipe bacteria-dosing solution, said to remove FOG from kitchen drains.
James Curran, Kingspan’s business development director for Europe said: “We’re very pleased to be paying our first visit to Commercial Kitchen, exhibiting our customised, proven solutions for the growing problem of FOG and food waste.
“Sewer blockages are on the increase, 70% of which are caused by FOG. Blockages cause huge disruption, blocked toilets and a public health nuisance. Out of sight is not out of mind! What’s more, uncontrolled discharge of FOG from a foodservice establishment could contravene Section 111 of the Water Industry Act 1991.
“We will provide a site survey to ensure your system is correctly sized, plus ongoing maintenance support to provide many years of problem-free protection.”
