Large grease generators in the kitchen are the pre-rinse sinks and the pot-washing sinks. Grease comes from the food residue that is on used plates and cookware. The biggest generator of grease is the three-compartment sink, where a lot of the pots and pans are washed.
Surprisingly, very little grease comes from the dishwasher. Plates and cookware have grease and food residue scraped/rinsed off at the pre-rinse station before they go into the dishwasher. Any grease that does come out of a dishwasher is emulsified grease. Grease emulsifies due to the high concentration of detergents and high strength soaps that dishwashers utilise. Emulsified grease cannot be trapped.
Vent the vessel vent to atmosphere to properly regulate airflow in and out of the Trapzilla tank. The outlet vent needs to be vented to the facility vent or code-approved vacuum breaker to prevent siphonage. Failure to properly vent outlet voids Thermaco's warranty.

To put it simply, a grease trap is a tank into which wastewater containing fat, oil (FOG) and grease flows through before entering a drainage system. The tank is designed to intercept or "trap" the FOG while allowing clear water to escape.
