Sewer sLick removes fats, oil and grease plus floating debris from municipal lift stations to produce a waste concentrate for periodic removal. Mechanically simple, Sewer sLick has no moving parts that come into contact with FOG. With just a small footprint, sewer sLick can fit in or beside a sewer lift station. Sewer sLick’s only input is for electrical power. It is easy to install without disrupting the lift station.
Sewer FOG clogs municipal sewer systems and adheres to walls of sewer pipe and equipment, thus restricting flow and incapacitating operations. Sewer FOG consists of semi-solid congealed fats, not liquids. Floating debris in lift stations may contain a tangle of plastic bags, wipes, and anything else that gets flushed down toilettes or sent to drain. Consequently, liquid removal systems such as weirs, brush skimmers, and belts that are used to clean up liquid oil spills are not effective to remove sewer FOG. Removing sewer FOG from municipal lift stations – as close to sources of FOG as is practical – has potential to help protect municipal sewers from harm caused by FOG.
