The Office of the State Fire Marshal's adoption of this chapter or individual sections is applicable to structures regulated by other state agencies pursuant to Section 1.11.
|TRAP ARM PIPE DIAMETER (inches)||DISTANCE TRAP TO VENT MINIMUM (inches)||LENGTH MAXIMUM (inches)|
|Exceeding 4||2 x Diameter||120|
1 Maintain 1/4 inch per foot slope (20.8 mm/m).
Exception: For trap arms 3 inches (80 mm) in diameter and larger, the change of direction shall not exceed 135 degrees (2.36 rad) without the use of a cleanout.
- Drawn-copper alloy tubing traps shall not be used for 1 urinals. Each trap shall have the manufacturer's name stamped legibly in the metal of the trap, and each tubing trap shall have the gauge of the tubing in addition to the manufacturer's name. A trap shall have a smooth and uniform interior waterway.
- [HCD 1 & HCD 2] Non-water supplied urinals conforming to ASME A112.19.19-2006, Standard for Vitreous China Nonwater Urinals, or reference standards in Table 1701.1 for non-vitreous ceramic or plastic urinal fixtures.
Exception: Floor drains in areas not regularly washed down will be acceptable with deep-seal traps, provided that such drains are connected to secondary drainage systems discharging into a safe sink or basin (air gap) that is properly trapped and vented, and that such drains accomplish the objectives and intent of this section.
Exception: Food waste disposers shall be permitted to discharge to grease interceptors that are designed to receive the discharge of food waste.
Exception: Listed grease interceptors with integral flow controls or restricting devices shall be installed in an accessible location in accordance with the manufacturer's installation instructions.
For the purpose of this section, the term "fixture" shall mean and include each plumbing fixture, appliance, apparatus, or other equipment required to be connected to or discharged into a grease interceptor by a provision of this section.

SIZING HYDROMECHANICAL GREASE INTERCEPTOR(S) USING FIXTURE CAPACITY
Step 1: Determine the flow rate from each fixture.
[Length] X [Width] X [Depth] /  = Gallons X [.75 fill factor] / [Drain Period (1 minute or 2 minutes)]
Step 2: Calculate the total load from fixtures that discharge into the interceptor.

1 The maximum allowable DFUs plumbed to the kitchen drain lines that will be connected to the grease interceptor.
2 This size is based on: DFUs, the pipe size from this code; Table 703.2; Useful Tables for flow in half-full pipes (ref: Mohinder Nayyar Piping Handbook, 3rd Edition, 1992). Based on 30-minute retention time (ref.: George Tchobanoglous and Metcalf & Eddy. Wastewater Engineering Treatment, Disposal and Reuse, 3rd Ed. 1991 & Ronald Crites and George Tchobanoglous. Small and Decentralized Wastewater Management Systems, 1998). Rounded up to nominal interceptor volume.
3 Where the flow rate of directly connected fixture( s) or appliance( s) have no assigned DFU values, the additional grease interceptor volume shall be based on the known flow rate (gpm) (L/s) multiplied by 30 minutes.
GRAVITY GREASE INTERCEPTOR SIZING EXAMPLE
Given: A restaurant with the following fixtures and equipment.
One food preparation sink; three floor drains - one in the food prep area, one in the grill area, and one receiving the indirect waste from the ice machine and a mop sink.
Kitchen Drain Line DFU Count (from Table 702.1):
|3 floor drains at 2 DFUs each||=||6 DFUs|
|Mop sink at 3 DFUs each||=||3 DFUs|
|Food prep sink at 3 DFUs each||=||3 DFUs|
Using Table 1014.3.6, the grease interceptor will be sized at 750 gallons (2389 L).
The sand interceptor shall have a minimum dimension of 2 square feet (0.2 m2) for the net free opening of the inlet section and a minimum depth under the invert of the outlet pipe of 2 feet (610 mm).
For each 5 gpm (0.3 L/s) flow or fraction thereof over 20 gpm (1.26 L/s), the area of the sand interceptor inlet section is to be increased by 1 square foot (0.09 m2). The outlet section shall at all times have a minimum area of 50 percent of the inlet section.
The outlet section shall be covered by a solid removable cover, set flush with the finished floor, and the inlet section shall have an open grating, set flush with the finished floor and suitable for the traffic in the area in which it is located.
Interceptors not rated by the manufacturer shall have a depth of not less than 2 feet (610 mm) below the invert of the discharge drain. The outlet opening shall have not less than an 18 inch (457 mm) water seal and shall have a minimum capacity as follows: Where not more than three motor vehicles are serviced, stored, or both, interceptors shall have a minimum capacity of 6 cubic feet (0.2 m3), and 1 cubic foot (0.03 m3) of capacity shall be added for each vehicle up to 10 vehicles. Above 10 vehicles, the Authority Having Jurisdiction shall determine the size of the interceptor required. Where vehicles are serviced and not stored, interceptor capacity shall be based on a net capacity of 1 cubic foot (0.03 m3) for each 100 square feet (9.29 m2) of surface to be drained into the interceptor, with a minimum of 6 cubic feet (0.2 m3).
