Kastalon Inc., based out of Alsip, Ill., has designed and manufactured a fixture to lock internal fryer oil and yellow grease tank-systems and their contents. As demand for biodiesel grows and yellow grease prices surge, theft has been on the rise.

Once considered waste, used fryer oil now serves as a viable and substantial key-ingredient in alternative fuel sourcing. The highly pure nature of used fryer oil and its relative low viscosity have made it a prime and easy target for these thieves. Some larger holding tanks can be vacuumed empty in just minutes.

With a typical fast-food restaurant producing 200 to 300 pounds of the waste oil per week, and a large rendering company servicing hundreds of these locations regionally, the value of at-risk material can range into the upper tens of thousands of dollars per week. When larger facilities are serviced and a national outlook is taken, theft potential to a renderer can be astronomical.

Although still a relatively new issue, shielding oil from theft while allowing it to be accessed by those authorized has been a challenge. Most methods have been ineffective, inefficient or costly. Kastalon stated that its innovation, trademarked The Sekure Kap, is easy to install, simple to maintain and able to be retrofitted to any oil-containment system in a cost-effective manner.
