Are Automatic Grease Recovery Devices (AGRD) As Good As The Manufacturers Claim?

Description:For many years the Capital Regional District, in Victoria, BC, would not accept AGRD as an alternative to the traditional mechanical gravitational grease interceptor. The claims made by the manufacturers were never fully supported with credible scientific evidence or real-time testing in 'real-life' situations. In 2012, the decision was made by the Regional Source Control Department to conduct a number of closely monitored trials at a fast-food burger restaurant. To date two AGRD and two mechanical gravitational grease interceptors have been trialed with varying results and a lot data was collected. This session will reveal what actually happened during the trial. What problems were encountered and what solutions were implemented? It will reveal some interesting findings regarding the effectiveness and efficiency of these devices under extreme working conditions. So are AGRD better than mechanical gravitational grease interceptors?
