What is a Grease Interceptor?
A grease interceptor is a plumbing device that, when properly installed and maintained, traps fats, oils & gasses, also known as FOGs, before they enter the waste disposal infrastructure. The captured FOGs are directed to holding tanks located between the disposal source and municipal infrastructure. At regular intervals, the holding tanks are emptied and the FOGs are properly discarded.
What is the difference between Gravity Grease Interceptors (GGI) and Hydromechanical Grease Interceptors (HGI)?
- Gravity grease interceptors have been around since the Victorian era, and not a lot has changed with them since the late 1800s. The large capacity of GGIs allows for FOGs to sit for longer periods of time, increasing the toxicity levels of the waste. GUIs are held to minimal standards and almost no testing is done before they are able to be used in the field.
- Hydromechanical grease interceptors offer an improved technology, with higher efficiency rates than GUIs. HGIs must comply with stringent testing standards before being certified for use, resulting in optimal grease management. Smaller sizes allow for more versatile installation, and
encourage regular maintenance, meaning the waste removed is less toxic and therefore less damaging to the environment.
What makes Endura® a better grease interceptor?
Building on a field-proven approach to grease management, Endura grease management products have demonstrated effective, efficient, and consistent performance with over a decade of field installation and operation. Endura products are multi-patented and built to withstand the toughest environments, providing the flexibility of in-floor, on-floor, and semi-recessed applications. Endura products have been instrumental in changing the traditional practices regarding the installation of grease management solutions - plastic alternatives to metal interceptors are being increasingly accepted Nationwide as the new standard for grease management in commercial food service applications.

Endura® Plaster Trap
This unit is intended for a wide range of applications where by gravity, material is required to be separated from the waste water flow. This includes materials such as plaster, clay, sand, sediment, grit and general debris.
Endura® Air Admittance Valve
An Air Admittance Valve (AAV) is a termination device that allows air to enter the drainage system (vent) only during a discharge. Otherwise it remains closed to prevent the release of foul odours into the living/operational space.
An AAV is used where it is not possible or is cost prohibitive to make a vent connection into an existing vent line or a penetration to atmosphere. Check with you local inspector as to the necessary approvals or by-laws for you particular location.

“This project couldn’t have happened without these grease interceptors. They were lightweight and easy to get in and set.”
“As a consulting engineer, I want to deliver the best efficiency at the best cost. These units are more efficient and cheaper than settlement tanks.”
Each installation is unique. Ensure that the grease interceptor you install is the correct size for the application.
When choosing the correct grease interceptor (GI), engineers and contractors need to consider more than just calculated volume and flow rates. The location of the grease interceptor also influences choice, especially when people’s health and the environment are concerned.
Removing fats, oils, and grease from wastewater is what Endura® does. Doing it in a way that is green and less costly is where it excels.
At Endura®, we believe that interception is the best defense. That’s why we work with cities, municipalities and regulatory agencies across the U.S. to develop long-term solutions that benefit everyone.
