Grease traps are plumbing devices designed to intercept most fats oils and greases before they enter the public sanitary sewer system. Most commercial kitchens experience an ongoing problem with slow or clogged drains and sewer lines due to the build up of fats, oils and greases. Frequently, these build ups resultin a back up that requires a plumber to snake or hydrojet the affected line(s) costing the operator thousands of dollars every year. In addition, the build up of FOG's in the system generates odors affecting customers, employees and the surrounding community
DRAIN-AWL is a breakthrough grease trap maintenance solution that works effectively to keep sewer lines clear and prevents grease traps from overflowing. DRAIN-AWL is a non-toxic, biodegradable solution that softens fats, oils and grease and prevents the formation of grease cakes and fat logs. DRAIN-AWL also effectively removes the offensive odors associated with wastewater.
DRAIN-AWL is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly solution that is fully compliant with city regulations. DRAIN-AWL is not an emulsifier, surfactant, enzyme or bacterial based product.

Solutions are GRAS certified, enzyme free, and non-toxic. These solutions are so safe that they don’t require special handling requirements under OSHA or DOT guidelines.
The products line is synthesized from ingredients which are safe for use in food and food adjutants. Aquatic toxicity is very low; LC-50/96 for juvenile rainbow trout is more than 1,000 ppm at use levels (concentrate levels vary).
Solutions are isotonic balanced with the pH of concrete. They are not corrosive to wastewater piping systems and, due to the H2S removal, the corrosion to the system and infrastructure is abated.
The product line is biodegradable under anaerobic conditions with methane, carbon dioxide, and water. This virtually prevents the formation of solids, salts producing EC (Electrical Conductivity), or nitrates.
Very simple and does not require plant shutdowns. No special equipment or storage tanks are needed.
