  • Frontline International has redesigned its popular Heated Grill Grease System to be safer and cleaner and to accommodate more grills than before. Key changes include a new shape and the addition of a funnel to guide fat into the containment bin.

    Other new features are an integral pump for worry-free transfer of grease to containment tanks, and new heater controls to more precisely and efficiently keep fats in a constant liquid state.

    The Heated Grill Grease System allows users to collect grill grease throughout the serving day and then pump it into any of Frontline International’s waste-containment tanks. Solids are filtered via the extra-large sediment basket, preserving the high quality of the oil while protecting the integrity of the equipment’s pump and motor.

    The redesign does an even better job of efficiently routing grease to the collection area and away from employees and kitchen surfaces. This improves safety and overall cleanliness.

    Operation is easy: When the caddy is near full—or at scheduled intervals when the grill is less busy—carefully pull the caddy to the Frontline International used-oil storage tank or pumping station and easily pump the waste grease into the tank.

  • Frontline International has announced an expansion project that will double the size of its headquarters in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Following completion in Sept. 2018, the facility will total 30,000 square feet.

    Virtually every aspect of Frontline’s business will be touched by the project, including significantly larger warehouse capacity to facilitate faster delivery of product. Fabrication and welding departments will also see expansion for faster product turnaround while maintaining critical quality standards.

    Dramatic increases in international and domestic equipment sales spurred the new construction. New programs were also contributing factors, including the launch of OilCare®, a turnkey initiative for which cooking oil management services are bundled with fixed monthly equipment leases, helping customers access company services by financing the total cost. Increased manufacturing and warehousing capacity will position the company to better respond to the needs of customers globally.

    Frontline moved to the Cuyahoga Falls location in 2010 after previously being based in nearby Barberton. At that time, company officials mindfully designed the plant to be modular to easily respond to future growth. 

    “We’re excited about our current growth trajectory,” John Palazzo, president of Frontline International. “This expansion will help us stay better connected to our customer base while continuing to spread our message of safe, sustainable, and profitable cooking oil use throughout the world. We look forward to the years ahead, with an eye on additional expansion in the future.”

  • Stealing used cooking oil is a $40 million dollar-per-year business. Restaurants are ripe targets and often don’t realize how easy it is to secure this precious commodity. Frontline International’s integrated anti-theft valve makes sure that no one drains oil storage tanks unless they are authorized to do so.

    Why would anyone want to steal used grease? Because of its value to the production of biofuel and other byproducts like animal feed. It is estimated that 8 percent of all used oil intended for collection slips into the hands of thieves. That’s nearly 200 million pounds of stolen grease, selling at two to three dollars per gallon.

    Now, restaurants and their renderers can easily protect themselves and eliminate the theft threat. Frontline collection ports with the integrated anti-theft valve make it impossible for thieves to drain stored oil. The anti-theft valve can only be opened by entering a password on a control panel on the tank.

    The valve can also be opened remotely if foodservice operators choose Frontline’s web-based M3 Data Management System, which helps monitor, measure, and manage cooking oil usage while controlling profits from used oil resale. M3 provides data and reports to track usage and collection statistics and compare them daily, weekly, and monthly. Automatic alarms are sent before fresh oil supplies are exhausted or the waste oil tank reaches “full.” Oil collection companies can even be alerted when it is time to collect.

    No matter which option is chosen, Frontline gives operators the weapons they need to lay down the law against oil thieves and keep their share of this vital commodity.

  • Frontline International has redesigned its signature EZ Oil™ Fresh Oil Dispensing System to dramatically increase capacity. The patented EZ Oil process employs boxed oil, held in an inverted position, that is plumbed to a reservoir. With the redesign, the depth of the reservoir has been more than doubled, which also more than doubles its shortening capacity.

    EZ Oil’s integral pump moves oil at the touch of a button from the reservoir to awaiting fryer vats. Over and above the filled reservoir, the unit racks more plumbed boxed oil, helping to ensure the reservoir remains filled and ready. Because this reservoir is now 10 inches deep, up from 4 inches, it will hold 350 pounds of shortening, up from 140 pounds.

    The new, greater capacity accommodates the industry’s largest fryers, and also is ideal for kitchens with several fryers that need to be plumbed in a chain using a single, automated dispensing system.

    “Sometimes bigger is better,” said Giovanni Brienza, vice president of Frontline International. “By increasing the capacity of the EZ Oil reservoir, we’re giving customers more of what they love about it. They can now go more than twice as long between reloading, ensuring peak performance during lunch and dinner rush.”

    The centerpiece of Frontline International’s Smart Oil Management™ systems, EZ Oil is the convenient, safer, and more cost-effective way to refill fryers with fresh cooking oil. Upside-down storage dispenses every drop of oil, increasing yields by up to 10%.

    Whether the system is direct-plumbed or implements the dispensing wand, fresh cooking oil flows freely and easily from the boxes on the rack into the fryers. This system can dramatically improve workplace safety, as hands and floors are kept clean and grease-free.

  • Improper disposal of waste cooking oil is a major problem throughout the industrialized world. The consequences of which were on display this September in east London, when city sewers became clogged by a mammoth grease blockage that was an incredible 820 feet long and weighed 130 tons. Crews worked seven days a week to chip away at the accumulated grease, which had mixed with other sewage materials to form a dense mass the consistency of concrete.

    “It’s frustrating, as these situations are totally avoidable and caused by fat, oil and grease being washed down [drains],” said Matt Rimmer, Thames Water’s head of waste networks.  

    Nearly half of all sewer blockages in the United States are caused by improper disposal of cooking oil. Each year local governments spend millions of dollars on repairs to undo the damage. Even blockages that don’t make it into the wider system can harm a building’s pipes and cost thousands to remedy.

    Cooking oil also has devastating effects on the environment if it reaches lakes and streams. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency treats it just like petroleum, citing the toxic potential.

    It doesn’t have to be this way. Frontline International Smart Oil Management systems make it easy to handle, recycle, and even profit from cooking oil and grease. With Frontline International waste oil collection equipment, cooking oil is effortlessly guided to and retained in tanks loaded with technology that monitors every drop. This is important since every drop is a valuable commodity traded for rebates. The system also helps kitchens monitor fresh oil supply, extend its life, and save money.

    Customers purchase and own their fresh oil- and waste oil-handling equipment, incurring no monthly leasing fees. By collecting and disposing of waste oil safely and tracking oil usage data, restaurateurs, grocery chains, commissary operators and more utilize Frontline International equipment to realize increased control and profitability.

  • Direct Plumbed Waste Oil and Fresh Oil Systems
    Automated, direct-plumbed systems for both fresh and waste oil, which send the oil directly to its destination with minimal or no handling by employees....

  • If you’ve searched for a safer, cleaner way to get both fresh and waste cooking oil to and from your fryers, you’ll find a hands-free solution in Frontline International’s cost-effective, highly efficient Smart Oil Management systems.  The company offers a choice of automated, direct-plumbed systems for both fresh and waste oil, which send the oil directly to its destination with minimal or no handling by employees.

    Direct-plumbed systems lower the risk of potentially dangerous spills, burns, or slip-and-fall injuries. And no more heavy buckets to haul or drag.

    For fresh oil, Frontline International offers its EZ Oil™ System for Standard Packaged Oil, which stores and manages fresh oil that you purchase in boxes or jugs. Boxes are placed upside-down on racks to ensure complete emptying, increasing yields by up to 10%. The boxed oil can be directly plumbed to the fryer for a fully automatic connection, so fryers are filled with a simple push of a button — not by pouring by hand out of a bulky box or jug.

    For waste oil, Frontline International’s fully automated direct-plumbed system helps ensure worker safety and easier oil collection. With a push of a button, used oil leaves the fryers and flows into the system’s secure waste oil containment tanks — inside or outside your facility. Frontline International’s stainless steel waste oil tanks also have collection ports equipped with an integrated locking anti-theft valve, part of the company’s available web-based M3 data management system that allows users to monitor, measure, and manage oil usage and collection 24/7.

    Frontline International’s direct-plumbed solutions for both fresh and waste oil make handling hot oil obsolete. That means potential savings on insurance, workers’ compensation, and employee downtime; greater employee safety; and cleaner floors and grounds. The equipment is modular and customizable and can be adapted to nearly any size space, even small and complex store layouts.

    All Frontline International equipment is backed by a one-year warranty on both parts and labor.
