An effective grease trap maintenance program should be all-inclusive, focusing on timely service, thorough trap cleaning, line maintenance (hydro-jet), as-necessary pre-treatment, accurate record keeping and education. Thorough trap cleaning involves the complete evacuation of all liquids and solids, a high-pressure cleaning followed by a final vacuum to pick up the residual material. Line maintenance can be basic inlet & outlet line cleaning from the trap to more comprehensive programs addressing interior drains and lines (grease and sanitary). Record keeping, in today's regulatory environment, is of paramount importance.
Hydro Jetting - A process that uses high pressure water to clear blockages in pipe systems and is typically the best approach to clearing blocked lines.
Why Hydro Jetting?

Grit can come in a number of forms but is most often seen in automotive applications and water treatment plant facilities. Typically it is nothing more than dirt, sand and other sediment in solution. Grit can contain metals, trace hydro-carbons, etc. that make proper handling critical. Silver City Processing is sensitive to the unique properties of grit and we are diligent in its proper removal and disposal.
Where is Grit found?
Often overlooked and forgotten until a plumbing issue occurs, lint traps are found anywhere that high-volume laundry service takes place. This would include laundry/dry cleaners, hotels and hospitals. Lint traps are unique in that sediment (lint) accumulates from the bottom up. Lint can lead to problematic line stoppages if traps are not properly maintained making it impossible to visually inspect a trap to determine the need for cleaning.
