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 result in 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
FreshAWL's 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 liquefies 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.

FreshAWL 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.
FreshAWL products are 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).
FreshAWL solutions are isotonic balanced with the pH of concrete. They are not corrosive to wastewater piping systems and, due to the H2 removal, the corrosion to the system and infrastructure is abated.
FreshAWL 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.
With FreshAWL, industries no longer need to rely on more expensive, highly corrosive, unstable, and dangerous to handle chemicals for odor and FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) control such as:
- Ferric Chloride
- Ferrous Chloride
- Ferrous Sulfate
- Hydrogen Per. 50% Oxygen
- Bioxide (Calcium Nitrate)
- Calcium Hydroxide
- Potassium Permanganate
FreshAWL products adhere to development standards in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the EPA and their DfE (Design for the Environment) certification program for environmental health and safety.
