FOG Terminology

Hello Bloggers!

Several of our Grease Guardian blogs have been dedicated to helping decode the terms and ideas around grease interceptors and fats, oils, and grease ordinances around the country. It is important that everyone understands their role in FOG management, so ordinances are able to have maximum effect in protecting the city infrastructure and surrounding environment.

Sizing and Flow Rate – It is imperative that an interceptor is properly sized to meet the require ordinance regulations and for the interceptor to work as intended. Grease Guardians are sized on the maximum flow rate coming from your different kitchen fixtures. Kitchen fixtures like 3 compartment sinks, pre-rinse stations, and other stations that come into contact with grease are all considered when sizing an interceptor. Let us help you in properly sizing your interceptor. We will ensure you have the correct equipment to help manage your kitchen and meet the ordinance requirements from the city.

Automatic Grease Removal Unit – AGRU or GRD is common short hand for interceptors that have a mechanical system to remove grease. Equipment like the Grease Guardian series are programed to remove grease into an external container daily. Allowing for less frequent pump outs and a smaller overall footprint than other passive interceptors on the market.

Solids Strainer – Dealing with solids is an important part of kitchen and grease interceptor management. Getting rid of solids before entering the waste stream should be the goal! Some interceptors come equipped with internal strainers that capture incidental solids that get left behind. Allowing for maximum grease retention and capacity.

Grease Guardian can help you understand your specific role in your local grease ordinance. We can properly size your equipment and get your doors open.
