When food companies like this frozen seafood processing facility in Northern Virginia need new or replacement grease interceptors, they look for reliable, cost-effective products. They analyze both short-term and long-term costs: the tank price, tank longevity, and the costs to ship, install, and maintain the interceptor over time.
This Virginia facility determined that a Xerxes fiberglass grease interceptor fits all these requirements, starting with cost savings in shipping and installing a lightweight tank. With grease’s corrosive nature, they saw the value in corrosion-resistant fiberglass, which avoids the leaks, odor, and tank failure common with concrete units.
To meet the plant’s exact requirements, our engineers designed a grease interceptor with three compartments, separated by baffles and fitted with manways, to allow each compartment to be accessed and cleaned out individually. The cylindrical design and smooth walls of our tank allow for easy cleaning out of the debris that collects at the bottom of the tank. Because of the corrosive activity in grease interceptors, the customer knew that corrosion-resistant fiberglass would be the best material for their facility.
