Grease Guzzler specified for remote African development


WPL’s Grease Guzzler for commercial kitchen grease management is bound for sub-saharan Africa along with 3 DMS and 2 DMC WPL Diamonds which will additionally treat the raw sewage at a new remote industrial development.

Grease is a common component in drain blockages, either as the problem or the trigger. When comparing staff time spent tending to grease traps, periodic emptying of a trap by tanker or  downtime factored-in if a drain is blocked, the Grease Guzzler is significantly less expensive in terms of whole life costs than a conventional grease trap.

Dave Parkinson, Product Division Director states  “the Grease Guzzler ensures kitchen cooking oils and fats used in large quantities do not find their way into the drainage system, in turn blocking the new WPL Diamond sewage treatment plant (pipework) being installed at the same time.”

The  Grease Guzzler is designed for simple mounting on to an internal wall, normally in the kitchen, close to the drainage waste pipe. Connections are very simple – cold water and electricity in, drain access out.


Bio Fluid S65 – 6 years research and development

WPLs propriety liquid for the  Grease Guzzler is the Bio-Fluid S65 which is part of the African bound requirement.  The liquid has a culmination of 6 year’s research and development into bacteria pre-activation and biological grease management.

Dave continues “The S65 bio fluid, a liquid used in conjunction with the Grease Guzzler is also being provided as it does not contain surfactants, ensuring biological breakdown of the oils and fats.”

Formulated to combat the different types of FOG found in commercial kitchens, it comprises of 58 different types of bacteria, producing a naturally occurring cocktail of enzymes and micro-organisms, rigorously screened to eliminate pathogens.

The new African site development will consist of a residential block, industrial site and a power and fire station.

Why the WPL Grease Guzzler is ideal for the African environment:

  • No blockages.
  • Eliminates foul drain odours caused by rancid grease, and helps prevent rodent and insect infestation.
  • Natural process – digests FOGs using naturally occurring micro-organism.
  • Compact requiring no space-consuming drums of bio-chemicals unlike some alternative products.
  • Designed on the principle of ‘fit and forget,’ it is completely automated and self-contained, requiring no daily maintenance.
  • S65 Bio Fluid digests grease oils and fats within the drainage system biologically.
