With the new grease separator: FiltaFOG Cyclone, franchise company Filta passes another company history milestone on the path to evolving from a mobile fryer services provider to a full-service provider for fryer, oil and grease management.

Already operating successfully for months at McDonald`s, Burger King and KFC in the UK, Filta is now also bringing the world’s first grease separator with eight hydrocyclones to the market in other European countries following successful initial trials undertaken here.

„No odours, easy maintenance, simple authorisation“

One of the first commercial kitchens to have Filta install a grease separator is catering company, “LuckyLunch” in Kempten (Germany). Managing Director Emanuel Oyeleye came across FiltaFOG Cyclone when looking for a suitable grease separator. It was also licensed by the relevant authorities without any issues.

“No unpleasant odours in our kitchen or near it, that was what we wanted from our grease separator”, says Oyeleye. “We also wanted a unit that we could maintain ourselves - simply and quickly on a daily basis - so that the separated oil and grease would not have to be stored for a long time and then have to be pumped away by an external service provider.”

“Working with the Filta installation team went smoothly. Some technical adjustments needed to be made at the initial stage, but now we have a separation system that hardly uses any energy and delivers an excellent result in terms of grease recovery”, says Oyeleye. “In line with current waste regulations, we can have the collected oil recycled into diesel oil. We get money back for this and at the same time we’re making a contribution to the environment as well as sustainability. Every few weeks at the most, a Filta representative comes by and services the unit professionally.”

Only up to 4 ppm grease in waste water

“The FiltaFOG Cyclone brings together 15 years of experience in the development of grease separators“, says Jos van Aalst, Managing Director of Filta Deutschland. “It was developed by engineers out in the field. Because of its special design, it currently offers the highest level of oil and grease recovery at a far lower level of energy consumption than conventional systems.”

Specifically this means that whereas 25 ppm grease content in waste water used to be standard for grease separators, the FiltaFOG Cyclone gets this number down to as low as 4 ppm. Thanks to the energy-saving silicone heating pad, the FiltaFOG uses up to 50 times less energy than traditional models.

The grease separator is available in various sizes, can be positioned in a wide variety of ways as required and is suitable for use with dishwashers, wash pot areas, grills with drainage and drainage systems, among many other applications.
