wastewater is immediately directed downward by the main deflecting baffles. LAKASA Biomatic Grease Interceptor is designed to provide an effective. Food particles will be trapped and filtered in the stainless steel perforated basket. grease and food particles are flushed and enters the inlet of interceptor at high velocity. at the same time allowing trapped air bubbles to rise to the surface. The solid waste and starch is filtered out effectively from the sediment trap (first chamber). The second chamber is completed with checker plate aluminium cover. Calculate total flowrate from all the fixtures connected to one particular grease interceptor. LAKASA Biomatic Grease Interceptor is recommended for use in kitchens. The baffles will effectively reduce the velocity and turbulence of the incoming liquid. Identify and assume the simultaneous discharge diversity factor for all the fixtures. rivers. These baffles are arranged in unique positions to allow effective and efficient separation of grease. Specification of LAKASA Grease Interceptor The unit is completed with two chambers and with two separate interceptor covers. The first chamber comes with a perforated stainless steel bucket and is able to effectively filter away incoming solid waste and starch. centralized food courts in commercial and institutional buildings as well as traditional individual shops into the drain lines has significantly increase pollution to server plants. fats and oil (FOG) and solid starch. institutions. a proper design removable baffle assembly which can effectively control flow velocity and turbulence of incoming wastewater. LAKASA Biomatic Grease Interceptor is completed with two individual chambers to take care both the solid waste and starch. lakes and other waterways. The turbulence of the liquid flow is further reduced when the wastewater passes through the remaining baffles. The interceptor cover for first chamber can be easily opened with hinges support for easy maintenance. enzyme dosing connection and deep seal integral trap with rodding access. dishwasher that contains air.

The setting is digital type and is user-friendly. Easy and fast to learn and understand. There is a digital timer to control setting for the dosage and timing of dosing the biomatic enzyme. Specification of Auto-Dosing Unit The unit is a temporized dosing system.. Connect the ADU to a 13 amp power point. activated by a programmable digital clock. Operating Instruction for ADU I. Set the dosing „ON‟ time (2 hours after the kitchen is closed) and the dosing „OFF‟ time for a correct dosing duration according to recommended enzyme dosage. The recommended distance is not more than 5 meters for effective transmission of enzyme from the source to the destination. because this will ensure the optimum performance of the enzyme and to avoid the wastage of enzyme. The auto-dosing system will continue to run as normal and do not have to re-set again.. 3. there is seldom any breakdown complaint. . 2. The reliability and accuracy for the timing and dosage setting is important and critical. There is a Back-up battery for the setting in case of power failure. II. This is to avoid breakdown caused from water to the electronic component and motor. Run manual dosing with the initial dosage and to ensure the ADU is running properly. The whole unit is fully imported from an established manufacturer from Europe. Do not require any specially-trained technician to come and adjust the setting.
