Organica Biotech Pvt Ltd showcases how its enzyme-based solutions solved clogging, overflow and odour problems in a hotel kitchen
Commercial kitchen sinks, drain lines and grease traps get frequently clogged due to accumulation of Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG), leading to overflow and odour emanation.Organica Biotech understood this problem and conceptualised advanced 360° grease cutting solutions for FOG accumulators i.e. kitchen sinks and grease traps.
Its enzyme-based formulations are capable of eliminating the toughest of FOG residues, are non-corrosive
(this safe for drain lines) and help maintain fresh and hygienic indoor utilities.
A reputed five-star hotel in Varanasi was facing severe clogging issues. The maintenance engineer called the team for the solution for his drain pipelines and grease trap problems. The team was given to understand that the
drain clogging was happening every 10-15 days and the client tried removing the clogs 2-3 times manually. The grease trap also had to be cleaned every second day. There was a lot of odour that sometimes led to a backflow into the kitchen floors.
The client was advised to use OB Care Kitchen Drain Cleaner in all the sinks and Bioclean Septic Plus in the grease trap. OB Care Kitchen Drain Cleaner actively prevents food and slime accumulation in kitchen sink drains, preventing clogging. Bioclean Septic Plus ensures powerful degradation of fats, oil and grease in grease traps, keeping it odour-free.
Application Process For kitchen sink: OB Care Kitchen Drain Cleaner is to be poured into the sink after the cleaning process is completed, at night. After pouring this solution, no water or any other waste should be poured in the sink. The regular dose is 10 gm diluted in 500 ml water, good for up to 5 sinks. Based on the team’s assessment, the client was advised to dilute 50 gm of OB Care Kitchen Drain Cleaner in 3 litres of water and pour uniformly across 20 sinks every night after cleaning.
For Grease Trap: Since the issue was severe, the client was required to clean the grease trap every two days, which was very frequent.
The team devised an accelerated step-down dosage plan to normalise the grease trap functioning. For the first 15 days, post grease trap cleaning, they were advised to dose 50 gm of Bioclean Septic Plus mixed in 2 litres of water,
every second day. After 15 days, the cleaning came down to once every 7 days. The dose was fixed at 200 gm of Bioclean Septic Plus, once in 7 days. After one week, the grease trap needed cleaning after 15 days, which subsequently reduced to once-a-month cleaning which is optimum performance for any grease trap. Thereafter, the
final maintenance dose was 1 kg of Bioclean Septic Plus, every month, post cleaning of the grease trap.
The Result: Odour from kitchen sinks came down within one week of using OB Care Kitchen Drain Cleaner. The grease trap reached its optimum cleaning frequency of once-a-month. The maintenance engineer and his team were very happy with the result, and he made it part of the kitchen cleaning SOP.
