BFL Grease Clean

Download Data Sheet

Applications: Fats, oils, greases

Grease, fats and oil in kitchen drains, grease traps and pump sumps cause a number of major problems. The problems arising from grease in drainage systems include:

  • Blocked drains
  • Bad smells
  • Slow draining sinks
  • Regular grease trap pumping
  • Flooding.

    These grease related problems result in considerable expense on emergency maintenance and inconvenience in kitchen operation. Traditional methods include the use of specialist contractors for rodding and suction or hazardous chemicals to dissolve the grease and move it further down the sewer where it becomes the problem for the local authority.

    BFL Grease Clean harnesses the power of environmental biotechnology to solve the problems caused by grease in drainage systems in a completely safe and natural way. BFL Grease Clean contains a blend of harmless, natural micro-organisms which have the ability to degrade grease. This degradation process ensures that grease is destroyed and can't reform further down the drain.

    The benefits of treatment of drainage systems with BFL Grease Clean are:

  • Free flowing drains
  • Eliminates bad odours
  • Reduces frequency of grease trap emptying
  • Increases hygiene by eliminating flies
  • Reduced drain maintenance
  • Safe for people and the environment
  • Planned maintenance costs.

    What is BFL Grease Clean?

    BFL Grease Clean is a liquid product which contains a blend of micro-organisms which have been specially selected for their ability to efficiently degrade grease. They also are efficient in degrading other food waste materials. These bacteria produce a range of enzymes which degrade grease, starch, protein and plant fibres (cellulose). The formulation also contains a small quantity of free enzymes which initiate the process of degradation until the bacteria begin to produce their own. The key to the breakdown of grease and other compounds, which are not water-soluble, is the production of biological surfactants or biosurfactants. Biosurfactants help to emulsify the grease so that it can be degraded more efficiently. The bacteria in BFL Grease Clean have been selected for their ability to produce biosurfactants. One further addition to BFL Grease Clean is the inclusion of a small quantity of biodegradable surfactants. These help to stimulate the initial degradation process until the bacteria produce sufficient biosurfactants to continue this natural phenomenon.

    Directions for use

    BFL Grease Clean is a liquid product which is specially formulated so that it can be dosed automatically. The ideal time for dosing is 1.5 - 2 hours after kitchen closedown so that the bacteria have an opportunity to degrade grease under more favourable conditions. During the hours of kitchen operation conditions in the drains and grease trap are hostile to biological action due to high temperatures, sanitisers, high pH, detergents, etc. Therefore it is essential that the biological population be maintained by daily dosing of BFL Grease Clean.

    BFL Grease Clean is supplied as a concentrated product which needs to be diluted by adding 1 litre to 24 litres of clean water to produce the ready to use product. Dosing is based on the number of meals served on a daily basis.
