The Greasebuster™ is highly effective at removing large amounts of and heavy fats present in bakeries, ready-made meal manufacturers and meat processors etc.

Effective at removing heavy materials, the Greasebuster™ can remove heavy oils and grease from metal machining and other similar industries.

Simple effective technology

Placed directly into the tank, the simple technology allows for effective removal of fats, oils and greases from the surface of the water using hydrophobic belt materials. This belt works continuously to lift FOG from the wastewater whilst rejecting water. The FOG is then scraped from the belt and deposited into a collection vessel for recovery.

In above ground tanks the Greasebuster™ can be attached to the wall of the tank and in underground tanks the flotation variant allows the Greasebuster™ to float in the tank and FOG is removed with an integral slurry pump to a surface collection vessel.
