Klargester Grease Trap - NSG1 500 Litres

Klargester Grease Trap - NSG1 500 Litres

Grease Traps are an effective and hygienic method of separating fat and grease from waste water flow.
Klargester grease traps will, by the removal of fat and grease:
• Greatly reduce incidents of blocked drains from catering establishments
• Improve the performance of septic tanks and field drains
• Prevent contamination of small sewage treatment plants
Grease traps are designed for small restaurants, public houses and canteens
Grease Separators: For applications such as larger restaurants, hotels, etc. where a grease separator should be considered to give additional volume.
Operation & Installation
Traps and separators allow fats and grease to naturally separate out from water, allowing their removal prior to the wastewater reaching the drainage system. The trap or separator should be installed close to the source of contamination before any foul waste can enter the drainage flow and to suit the expected liquid temperature.
Comes with free pedestrian duty cover and frame. Vehicle duty covers are available

New Rules For Using Septic Tanks & Small Packaged Sewage Treatment Plants

As of January 2015, you, as a homeowner, are now responsible for your choice, installation and maintenance of your wastewater system under a new code of practice introduced by the Environment Agency. You have a legal responsibility to minimise the impact of your sewage waste if you manage it within the bounds of your property e.g. with a septic tank or sewage treatment plant.
If you have a septic tank that discharges directly to a surface water you will need to replace or upgrade your treatment system by 1 January 2020, or when you sell your property if before this date.

How to follow the rules and protect your local environment

  • We strongly advise you always get expert, specialist advice when it comes to sewage waste treatment; the effluent has the potential to be both a serious health hazard and pollute the local environment if it is not properly managed. You are also at risk of prosecution if the regulations are not upheld.
  • Although you no longer need to register a small domestic tank or keep five year maintenance records, your septic tank or sewage treatment plant must still be fit for purpose, comply with industry standard EN 12566, and be properly sized, installed, and maintained by an authorised person.
  • You are limited to discharging a maximum of 2,000 litres of treated sewage per day into the ground or 5,000 litres of treated sewage per day to flowing water. If you discharge more you will need a permit.
  • Never neglect your wastewater system; out of sight is not out of mind! Like boilers and cars, septic tanks and sewage treatment plants need to be regularly serviced to operate efficiently.
  • If you have a septic tank that discharges directly to a surface water you will need to replace or upgrade your treatment system by 1 January 2020, or when you sell your property if before this date.

Trust the experts

It is now more important than ever to take care when it comes to your choice of tank. With over 15 years’ experience in wastewater solutions, Septic Tank Supplies are here to help with a premium, trusted packages, tailored to your home’s wastewater needs:
  • initial consultation/assessment of needs
  • premium products
  • free site inspection
  • reliable and cost effective
For complete peace of mind, Septic Tank Supplies recommends installing a sewage treatment plant which treats the wastewater, producing a clear overflow that is environmentally friendly and suitable for discharging even on sensitive sites.
Despite their high efficiency rating, treatment plants don’t cost significantly more to buy and install than a septic tank and require a smaller drainage field while maintenance and running costs are relatively low. However minor the impact on the environment, any serious problem caused by a failed septic tank or sewage treatment plant can have a major impact on the finances of the system’s owner.
Septic tanks and sewage treatment plants should never be considered a fit and forget solution – regulations require that they are maintained and emptied regularly, so it is important to trust professional service team to look after your wastewater system.

How the BioFicient works

The moving aerated media process used is a compact development of the traditional biological process and provides a more effective and complete means of reducing the loads.
1. Raw sewage gravitates to the unit where it is received in the primary settlement zone. Here, gross solids and other social debris settle to the bottom of the tank where they remain until the tank requires de-sludging.  Settled sewage is displaced from primary zone and enters the first of : two sequential moving aerated media reactors.
2. Media and liquid circulation in each zone is achieved through the use of a compressor and diffuser, which introduces fresh air into each compartment. The liquor is constantly re-circulated and contacts the moving media and as it does so, it is purified by the microorganisms (biomass) growing on the surface of the media and within the moving liquor. Excess growth of biomass is shed as solid particles into the liquor.
3. The final settlement tank is where humus solids settle to form sludge.  At preset intervals, portions of the sludge and liquor are returned to the primary tank for additional treatment.
4. Final effluent is displaced from the final settlement tank. With regulator approval, it is suitable for discharge to a watercourse or drainage field.
