As any business that collects, transports, and disposes of grease trap waste discovers, hauling grease can be an expensive proposition. Businesses that clean grease traps need landfills and municipal plants to accept all of the grease trap waste generated by the restaurants, businesses, and government-run entities in their local communities; otherwise, they face costly and environmentally irresponsible problems. Further, grease trap sludge must meet or exceed government paint-filter testing standards to be accepted.


Flo Trend counts many grease-trap waste haulers among our most valued customers, and to help these wastewater professionals reduce costs and increase profits, we’ve created customized dewatering equipment to save businesses money and hassle when transporting and disposing of grease trap waste. We call it the Grease Mate.


The Grease Mate is a variation on Flo Trend’s popular, patented container filter. The Grease Mate removes waste solids from grease trap waste on-site and drains fast to collect only the solids in your waste, extracting and purifying the recovered plant- and animal-based oils for recycling. By filtering the wastewater prior to discharge, the Grease Mate helps reduce the burden on your region’s wastewater treatment plants and lessens the load that waste management companies must haul and dispose of. Within 48 hours of treatment, your sludge will meet or exceed landfill paint-filter tests.


Because they will only have transport the solids to a disposal site, the Grease Mate can cut a grease-trap waste hauler’s daily transportation costs by as much as 50 percent in some cases. Best of all, we custom build the Grease Mate to each customer’s specifications. This way, we can create a custom solution to almost any grease-trap waste dewatering challenge.
