Apparatus for treating organic waste

An apparatus for treating organic waste. The apparatus contains a tank with an inner chamber. A weir with a lower gap is disposed into the tank and this weir divides the tank into an inlet chamber and an outlet chamber. The coil chamber receives natural waste and a socket sparks liquid into a waste disposal system from the outlet chamber. Microbes capable of biodegrading organic waste are introduced into the inlet chamber. A pump recirculates liquid from the base of the inlet chamber to the top of the coil chamber.

Description of Related Art

Restaurants and other business institutions that process food, in addition to manufacturing facilities, typically generate a wonderful amount of organic waste. This organic waste comprises not just soil food particles, but in addition grease, oils, fat,lipids, cutting oils, cellulose materials and the like, hereinafter collectively known as”organic waste”.

If these business establishments were to release the organic waste directly into a sewage system, the sewage system could quickly become clogged with the organic waste. Thus, many municipalities forbid such business establishments fromdirectly discharging this waste, and basically dirt, into the sewer system.

To be able to abide by these governmental regulations, many businesses which create organic waste pretreat the organic waste in a”grease trap” before flushing organic waste to the sewage system. The dirt trap is generally a tank havingan interior space. A weir is tucked inside the tank also divides the tank to an inlet chamber and an outlet space.

The organic waste is discharged to the top of the coil chamber while an outlet open to the peak of the outlet chamber is fluidly connected to the waste disposal or sewage system. An opening at the weir near the base of the tank and at aposition below the inlet and socket connects the inlet chamber to the outlet chamber.

In practice, as the natural waste is introduced into the inlet chamber, the inlet and outlet chamber fill into a liquid amount equivalent to the liquid level of the socket from the socket room. Organic waste such as fats, oils, greases, andsimilar substances not just doesn’t dissolve within water but is also less dense than water. As such, this organic waste floats into the top of the inlet section of the tank.

Microbes capable of biodegrading the natural waste are then introduced into the inlet section of the tank. In the ideal situation, these microbes degrade the organic waste, after which the now degraded organic waste flows throughout the weiropening, to the outlet space and finally causing the waste disposal system.

These formerly known dirt traps, however, have not proven tremendously effective in biodegrading the natural waste within the inlet chamber of the tank for a number of reasons. One rationale is that the microbes introduced to the inlet chambertend to conglomerate within specific regions of the inlet room leaving different regions with inadequate microbes to completely degrade the natural waste. In different scenarios, the temperature of the material contained within the grease trap is too lowor too chilly and so inadequate to promote biodegradation of the organic waste within the grease trap.

As a result, these previously known grease traps must disadvantageously be washed on a regular basis to remove excess dirt and other undegraded natural waste. Such regular cleaning of the grease trap, however, is equally expensive and laborextensive. Additional unless the dirt trap is routinely cleaned, undegraded natural waste can flow directly in the inlet chamber to the outlet chamber of the dust trap and directly to the sewage disposal system. The debut of untreated orundertreated organic waste into the sewage disposal system can clog the damaged sewage disposal system or cause additional damage to the sewage disposal system or health hazards.
