Unbelievable Capacity: The TZ-1826-ECA In-Ground Trapzilla Grease Interceptor has been certified per the PDI-G and ASME A112.14.3 standard to hold 1,826 lbs. of grease at a 100 gallons per minute flow rate. This exceeds the municipally-imposed limits of grease retention on a 750-gallon interceptor and rivals the grease retention of a traditional 1000-gallon interceptor in a fraction of the size!
Compact Footprint: Designed with ever-increasing population density and urban restaurant development in mind, the unit's 34" width is narrow enough to fit through a commercial doorway meaning it can be located virtually anywhere; in-ground outside the restaurant, hung in the interstitial space between floors or in a basement on a support stand. With 274 gallons of liquid capacity, it boasts an incredible retention rate for such a compact footprint, saving customers on installation and pumping.
Durable Design: Designed using the same features that have made the original Trapzilla Grease Interceptors so popular, its rotationally-molded, polyethylene body is durable enough that we now offer a manufacturer's Limited Lifetime Warranty on the unit.
Durable, failure-resistant unibody design: The main tank including the inlet and outlet are constructed of a single piece of rotationally molded polyethylene. Inlet and Outlet piping is secured using a patented interior radial compression ring. Some interceptors use PVC piping attached via glue or clips to a storage tank, creating the risk of failure at those attachment points during routine servicing. The TZ-1826's unibody design is stronger and more durable.
Horizontal baffles that boost efficiency: The interior horizontal baffle keeps turbulance inside the TZ-1826 below the trapped grease. That helps keep separation efficiency high (above 99%) even as it fills with trapped grease. Previously separated grease is retained in the upper chamber and is not subject to the effects of emulsified flows or hydrolysis which pulls grease out of traditional passive interceptors.
Sloped bottoms reduce buildup: In many flat-bottomed, square interceptors, grease is literally trapped in the bottom corners and builds-up. This lowers the efficiency of those units and reduces the amount of grease they can collect between pumpings. Trapzilla's sloped bottom prevents that build-up and helps efficiency in the unit high - allowing it to hold a higher percentage of its volume in grease between pumpings.
Efficiency that lasts: Traditional concrete interceptors are usually pumped out after only 25% of their volume is full or they won't work well enough to keep fats and oils out of the sewer systems. All Trapzilla systems are designed to hold a majority of their volume in grease before they must be pumped out. The TZ-1826 is no exception, designed to hold 91% of its volume in grease and is certified to meet the PDI-G 101 and ASME A112.14.3 standards. Even at near capacity, the unit’s separation efficiency easily exceeds the requirement. After 41 hours of testing, with 1,826 lbs. of retained grease, the TZ-1826’s accumulated efficiency was still 99.2% - even at 100 gallons per minute test conditions. All of this adds up to a grease interceptor which holds nearly a ton of fats, oil and grease in a volume of 274 gallons - one-fourth the size of a 1,000-gallon concrete interceptor with a similar volume. The TZ-1826 also holds almost 70% more grease than the leading hydromechanical interceptor.
The TZ-1826-ECA (in-ground model) comes with an 18" long single-piece extension collar and 22" Solid Top Cover that can be removed easily to clean out retained grease.
