Maintenance of Grease Traps





Super Enzymes Treatment Program for institutional Grease Traps


All grease traps should have initial or purge treatment of Super Enzymes directly into the traps.

If grease trap is heavily-loaded, partially clean grease trap manually first for best results.

After this initial or purge treatment, it will not be necessary to service IP Super Enzymes is used in all locations on a regular schedule as outlined herein.  This will retain the culture level in the grease traps thereafter.

Super Enzymes action will take from two to four days to reach maximum efficiency following the initial treatments.

Applications should always be made during the longest periods on non-use after all cleaning is finished in order to allow Super Enzymes to get a good substantial start.

Super Enzymes in grease traps operate on the principles of saponification, emulsification, dispersion and liquefaction.

The initial or purge treatment should be made u by mixing one 9or more cups of Super Enzymes into one gallon of warm water, stir into a slurry and pour directly into the opening over the entire area.

The amount of Super Enzymes to mix into a slurry with warm water for the initial or purge treatment is as follows;


3 to 10 gallon size grease trap -     1/2 cup

10 to 20 gallon size grease trap -     1 cup

20 to 50 gallon size grease trap - 1 cup per 15 gallon of grease trap size

100 to 500 gallon size grease trap -     1 pound Super Enzymes

500 to 1000 gallon size grease trap -     2 pounds Super Enzymes

Over 1000 gallon size grease trap -     1 pound per 1000 gallons


Super Enzymes in sinks according to the amount of frequency specified on a regular schedule, will provide adequate treatment for proper operation of the grease trap thereafter;


Dishwasher -      1 tablespoon once a week

Pot and Pan Sink -      1 tablespoon each day

Pre-Rinse Tank -      1 tablespoon each day

Wash Sinks -      1 tablespoon each week

Slop Sinks -      1 tablespoon each day

Garbage Disposal -      2 tablespoon twice a week

Potato Peeler -      1 tablespoon twice a week


If grease traps for kitchen wastes are connected to septic tanks or cesspools in institutions, kitchens, night clubs, road stands, etc., with high concentrations of deep fat frying, the grease traps should be cleaned manually on a routine basis in order to prevent overloads of cooked grease from plugging the drain field, or dry wells.

If this could happen, increase the application of Super Enzymes to stronger treatment in order to permit constant seeding and digestion in the drain field or dry well.  Otherwise, eventually the drain treatment should be the initial or purge treatment applied in a slurry form through the opening to the grease trap and directly over the wastes in the trap.
