Replacement of The GreaseDiaper®
For best results GreaseDiapers®should be replaced monthly or as needed. GreaseDiapers® are cost-effective to replace and maintain. GreaseDiapers®should be replaced as needed depending on the volume of Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) that is being generated. In a heavy grease environment you may need two GreaseDiapers® per GAP-1398 Drip Pan. To replace the GreaseDiapers®, simply remove both lock-in brackets and remove the soiled GreaseDiaper® replacing it with a new one. Note, always notify your duct cleaning company of any new equipment being installed. Special precautions will need to be taken during scheduled duct cleanings.
CAUTION: GreaseDiapers®could be damaged if they come in direct contact with hot water, high pressure and degreasers/cleaners. Therefore, the GreaseDiapers®should be removed during each cleaning and reinstalled after cleaning is rendered.
