Grease & Oil Interceptors

Tanks Direct: Your Source for Grease & Oil Interceptor Solutions

Tanks Direct is the go to source for plumbing, mechanical, site utility, and excavating contractors looking for grease and oil interceptor solutions. We’ve designed and installed countless interceptors for food processing facilities and restaurants and can accommodate every phase of your design and ensure a complete installation.

Grease Interceptors

Aging grease traps built out of concrete inevitably fail over time because they are not corrosion-resistant. When they fail, sanitary sewer system cleanup can be substantial and costly. Facility owners may incur fines in addition to repairing or replacing their failed grease trap system.

Food solids settle to the bottom of the tank. Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) rise to the top of the tank. With regular use, water is filtered out to the sewer system while the FOG and food solids remain in the tank. Interceptors do not require ongoing maintenance aside from scheduled pump-outs. The rounded walls allow for easy pump-out and cleaning.

Our clients source grease interceptors for a variety of applications including:

  • Restaurants
  • Convenience stores
  • Big box stores
  • Retail malls
  • Food-processing plants
  • Sports stadiums
  • Schools and universities
  • Correctional institutions

Oil Interceptors

In order to avoid costly fines, property owners install oil interceptors to prevent petroleum runoff which can lead to environmental pollution. Drains in parking garages, vehicle maintenance facilities, and manufacturing plants collect contaminated runoff. Oil interceptors are designed to capture the water so oil can float to the surface and sediment can fall to the bottom of the tank.

As water enters an oil interceptor, a baffle plate reduces the velocity of flow and turbulence so that oils rise to the surface of the water. The tank collects oil and sediment and then stores it for later disposal. Clean water passes through to the stormwater/sewer system.

Our clients source oil interceptors for a variety of applications including:

  • Parking garages
  • Vehicle maintenance facilities
  • Auto dealerships
  • Car washes
  • State, provincial, and municipal transportation facilities

Why Consider Fiberglass Grease & Oil Interceptors?

Corrosive Defense
Xerxes interceptors are made from fiberglass that can withstand the corrosive environment inside a grease interceptor. Bacteria that generate hydrogen sulfide and sulfuric acid can destroy other porous materials in just a few short years. You don’t have to worry about our tank cracking or collapsing due to corrosion.

Stronger Material
The integral-rib design and fiberglass construction result in significant structural strength. Our tanks are rated for H-20 and H-S20 traffic loads. No additional rebar-reinforced pad is required, another installation cost savings.

Leak Detection Monitoring
Our double and triple-wall models come with a leak-detection monitoring system. The electric monitor measures the accumulation of FOG as well as the level of sludge on the bottom of the tank. This allows facility managers to monitor tank functionality without having to open or enter the tank.
