Smart Storm's innovative Greasebuster fat skimmer has been involved in several trials that show it can remove very thick solidified fats and fine suspended solids.

FOG reduction for cake manufacturer

During trials at a well-known Welsh cake manufacturer, Smart Storm's innovative Greasebuster fat skimmer demonstrated that it can remove very thick solidified fats and also remove fine suspended solids.

In addition to FOG (fats, oils and grease) reduction, Greasebuster was found to significantly reduce other effluent parameters.

Reducing other effluent parameters

The trial also revealed that chemical oxygen demand (COD) and turbidity was reduced by 20%, so depending on the effluent composition, even higher reductions are possible.

FOG reduction in trials at edible oil refinery

Smart Storm’s R&D Team has been working closely with Bangor University on further developing the Greasebuster's belt with spectacular results.

Trials have taken place at one of the UK’s largest edible oil refineries which manages many different plant-based oils before blending and processing them into solutions for use in the food industry.

An experimental test belt was employed where the right-hand side of the belt was devoted to the newly developed material and image 2 above shows clearly superior extraction rates of FOG in this area.

A further trial with the newly developed material across the full width of the belt showed that Greasebuster successfully recovered extremely high volumes of particularly thick, viscous mixed oils from the refinery’s wastewater effluent (image 1 above), which is extracted and deposited to an IBC; the extracted FOG waste is a commodity that can be sold for conversion to biodiesel.

The latest trials have shown Greasbuster to be a truly versatile and effective FOG skimmer and water quality solution.

The Greasebuster fat, oil and grease skimmer can be customised to specific customer requirements for different effluent types and manufacturing sites.
