The standard roof vent design, one that we have in our Duraflo SquareTop 6050s, has been around in both metal and plastic for over 40 years—and not much has changed in that time
Do not hesitate to get in touch for any reason.
A hydromechanical grease interceptor (HGI) without a flow control device (FCD), is just a greasy, overpriced plastic bin. But throw an FCD into the mix, and for the first time in history, we are seeing separation efficiencies exceeding 95%. They’ve been called grease gatekeepers, regulators, and the heart of HGIs. But what makes them tick?
Whether you like it or not, your grease interceptor is an integral part of your business. And unfortunately, interceptors are not yet a “set it and forget it” technology. Without regular maintenance, your business could be subject to fines, crippling shut-downs, and brand damaging reports.
Ridge vent, tall vent, turbo vent, small vent—with so many vent choices out there, it’s hard to know which ones to choose. At Canplas, we recommend selecting only one type of vent for your rooftop.
Despite the lack of any actual cutting, the age old adage “measure twice and cut once” is intensely relevant when choosing the optimal interceptor for your project. Attempting to save money upfront by buying a model that is clearly too small will result in sky high maintenance costs via weekly pump outs. And that’s if you’re lucky enough to avoid a full out kitchen back-up.
What is innovation? More than a product, it’s a process. Entrepreneur Margaret Heffernen hit the nail on the head when she stated,“For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument, debate.” Vaculine aspires to achieve a level of excellence in innovation through its product development process. The new CanSweep Sweep Inlet Valve, … Continue reading “Vaculine CanSweep Inlet Valve”
Home design is changing and so are the ways in which we need to choose our ventilation. Here are a few steps to make sure you’re choosing the right ventilation for your home.
In an industry dominated by concrete and steel since its inception, plastic is proving to be an increasingly worthy adversary. Well, that’s the nice way to say it. But as engineers, we far prefer the blunt version. Injection molded thermoplastics are now the premier grease interceptor construction material. Here’s why.
For those times when there is a single dust bunny left behind your couch, and your vacuum cleaner simply can’t find enough life to suck it up—we understand your struggle.
Grease management can be a daunting industry for newcomers, especially if it’s your first time trying to choose a system for your restaurant or project. And if you haven’t already, you’ll encounter a barrage of acronyms and seemingly complicated terms, like HGI, FOG, and interceptor. But don’t fret, because by the end of this post, you’ll be fluent in conversational grease-anese, and well on your way to selecting an ideal solution.
When is the last time you threw a baseball at one of your roof vents?
We do it all the time.
This is how we learned that when you throw a baseball at your average metal vent, it will most likely become bent out of shape. We also learned that more durable plastic vents won’t bend or break — as demonstrated in the video below.
