Ensure Safe Handling of Fryer Waste Oil with Frontline International’s Award-winning Direct-plumbed® System

Pete Zeller - frontline international direct plumb systemFebruary, 2017—If your coffee shop serves fried foods, you have a respon­si­bility to protect your workers around the fryer, one of the most dangerous tools in a food­ser­vice operation’s kitchen. When back-of-house employees handle buckets of hot, messy waste oil, there is a real and dangerous poten­tial for slip-and-fall acci­dents, burns, muscu­loskeletal disor­ders (MSDs) caused by carrying heavy containers, and more. These types of injuries can be extremely costly to busi­nesses due to lost work time and legal liability, and they can leave employees with long-term phys­ical prob­lems as a result of their injuries.
Frontline International is dedi­cated to increasing safety in profes­sional kitchens. Their hands-free Smart Oil Management™ system received a bronze award in the Kitchen Innovation Challenge at the Commercial Kitchen 2016 show.
The fully auto­mated Direct-Plumbed® system is Frontline International’s safest waste oil manage­ment system, and it’s easy to operate, requiring just the push of a button. Filtered waste oil is plumbed to flow out of fryers and into a Frontline International storage tank with no contact with employee hands.
Not only does a Direct-Plumbed® system enhance employee safety, it also makes for easier oil collec­tion by your renderer. Used oil or grease flows from the fryers directly to secure waste oil tanks housed inside or outside your facility. Frontline International’s stain­less steel waste oil tanks have collec­tion ports designed with a locking anti-theft valve to prevent theft or misuse of used oil.
Direct-Plumbed® waste oil solu­tions can completely elim­i­nate the need to handle used fryer oil. Frontline International’s equip­ment is modular, infinitely customiz­able, and can be installed in a wide variety of restau­rant kitchens, even those with small and complex layouts. Regardless of your setup, Frontline International’s effi­cient, cost-effective systems can decrease hazards for your employees and increase your bottom line. All equip­ment is backed by a one-year warranty on both parts and labor.
