Cooking Oil Removal Vacuum
Q: What types of used cooking oil will your cooking oil removal vacuum, GreaseVac, handle?
A: All types. Used Vegetable Oil, Lard etc.
Q: How often does the GreaseVac need to be emptied?
A: It depends on the number of fryers in your establishment and the frequency you dump the old cooking oil. The 75 gallon unit stores about eleven 50lb fryers-worth of used cooking oil. The 110 gallon unit stores about 16 50lb fryers worth of oil. So, for a kitchen with four 50lb fryers who dump oil about once per week, the unit would need to be emptied in about 3 weeks time.
Q: How do I determine which model GreaseVac is best suited for my establishment?
A: The most important consideration is the amount of space within the kitchen. Smaller kitchens usually like the smaller machine. Our most popular model is the smaller 75 gallon unit.
Q: Will my current grease collection company be able to pick up my used cooking oil?
A: Probably. To extract and dispose of the used cooking oil from the machine, the GreaseVac requires a truck with a Vacuum or Pump capability. Most metropolitan areas have Service Company providers that operate these type trucks. If not, we will assist you in finding a company that can service your needs.
Q: How fast will it suction out the oil from a 50lb fryolator?
A: In 30 to 40 seconds.
Q: Do I have to wait for the used oil to cool before removing the oil from the fryer?
A: No! The wand is specially designed to remain cool during use. Since you can immediately vacuum out the oil while it is still hot, the establishment can save time and money. Be sure to turn off the fryer before vacuuming out the oil!
Q: How easy is it to roll when full?
A: The four heavy duty swivel casters are designed to allow for a person of average weight/build to move the GreaseVac. If there are significant inclines along the path, a second person would be a good idea.
Q: How big is the unit?
A: The 75 gallon model is 44” long (with handle) by 25” wide by 48’ tall. The 110 gallon model is 9” longer and all other dimensions are the same.
