Grease Interceptor at University Dining Hall
Until recently, all the grease interceptors in the dining hall kitchens at Michigan State University (MSU) were made of concrete. The university is now replacing these deteriorating units one by one.
Before trying fiberglass, MSU installed a coated steel grease interceptor. The expensive coating was needed to protect against corrosion. These extra costs led them to search for an easier, less expensive option.
MSU invited us to present to their mechanical group. They liked what they heard, and chose our corrosion-resistant fiberglass tank to replace the grease interceptor in the Snyder Phillips dining hall, which seats 600 and is one of the busiest on campus.
In early June, that 2,500-gallon/9,000-liter concrete interceptor was replaced with our 20,000-gallon/76,000-liter fiberglass grease interceptor. Our lightweight tank was easy and quick to ship and install, providing another cost savings.
MSU’s mechanical team now specifies only fiberglass.
