The increasing of wastewater pollution and the most of the sewage water blockage caused blocking resulting from the presence of fat, oil, and grease (FOG). Numbers of solids deposited in sewers would increase as introducing of additional solids to the domestic wastewater stream. An effective automated version of grease trap will reduce this problem and avoid the FOG contaminant in the sewer system. The emulsifier is also a problem because when there is an emulsifier effect in the FOG, separation process will be slower and retention time will be longer. Low efficiency of removal methods designed for skimming tank and grease trap in treatment plants is the main disadvantage of conventional techniques used to remove FOG. The research on the nature of oil, fat, was leading as the inspiration of the objective which, designing the concept of the skimmer for an active grease trap purpose and to develop the prototype of oil skimmer for the grease trap. In addition, the project analyzes the skimmer performance with correlation to retention time. Four types of material were analyzed for the skimmer, which are polypropylene, polytetrafluoroethylene, aluminum, and iron. The material was selected by using the methodology of designing the project which by House of Quality, Morphological chart and Pugh method with the material properties. An active grease trap with designed of four type materials for the skimmer was fabricated and analysis was conducted. From the analysis, the result showed the best performance of skimmer material used for skimming the oil were polytetrafluoroethylene, which identified by the shorten time taken to skimming the oil. This project provided a better result in order to shorten the retention time as effectiveness performance of the oil skimmer material in grease trap system.
