908.2.1 Where Permitted. Water closets, bathtubs, showers and floor drains within one (1) or two (2) bathroom groups located on the same floor level and for private use shall be permitted to be vented by a wet vent. The wet vent shall be considered the vent for the fixtures and shall extend from the connection of the dry vent along the direction of the flow in the drain pipe to the most downstream fixture drain or trap arm connection to the horizontal branch drain. Each wet-vented fixture drain or trap arm shall connect independently to the wet- vented horizontal branch drain. Each individual fixture drain or trap arm shall connect horizontally to the wet-vented horizontal branch drain or shall be provided with a dry vent. The trap to vent distance shall be in accordance with Table 10-1. Only the fixtures within the bathroom groups shall connect to the wet-vented horizontal branch drain.

Slide57 l.jpg

Traps vs. Interceptors vent shall be an individual vent or common vent for the lavatory, urinal, bidet, shower, or bathtub. Only one (1) wet-vented fixture drain or trap arm shall discharge upstream of the dry-vented fixture drain connection.

Nomenclature Clarification Recent changes in codes and standards to clarify mixed terms.

“Trap” has been eliminated in ASME Standards,

Uniform plumbing Code (UPC), and

Canadian Standards Association (CSA).

The International Plumbing Code (IPC)

“Interceptor” is deemed to be a more inclusive term

“Interceptor” allows for a more precise distinction between devices.

First official adoption was by IAPMO during its comprehensive rewrite of Chapter Ten (10) of the Uniform plumbing Code.


Slide58 l.jpg

The Hydromechanical Grease Interceptor vent shall be an individual vent or common vent for the lavatory, urinal, bidet, shower, or bathtub. Only one (1) wet-vented fixture drain or trap arm shall discharge upstream of the dry-vented fixture drain connection. design type incorporates air entrapment, the buoyancy of grease in water and hydro mechanical separation with interior baffling for grease, FOG (fats, oils and grease) separation . Hydromechanical Grease Interceptors continuously separate the FOG (fats, oils and grease) at the velocity it enters the interceptor.

The size of Hydromechanical Grease Interceptor is expressed in the gallons per minute flow (GPM) that the grease interceptor can accept and still remove 90 % plus, of the Fog (fats, Oils and grease) from the influent. The common sizes available today are 10, 15, 20, 25, 35, 50, 75, 100 GPM.


Slide61 l.jpg

SIZING OF HYDROMECHANICAL GREASE INTERCEPTORS: vent shall be an individual vent or common vent for the lavatory, urinal, bidet, shower, or bathtub. Only one (1) wet-vented fixture drain or trap arm shall discharge upstream of the dry-vented fixture drain connection.

The Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) has two methods.

1. Using Gravity Flow Rates (Table 10-2

2. Using Fixture Capacity (Table 10-2)


Slide63 l.jpg

The Gravity Grease Interceptor vent shall be an individual vent or common vent for the lavatory, urinal, bidet, shower, or bathtub. Only one (1) wet-vented fixture drain or trap arm shall discharge upstream of the dry-vented fixture drain connection. design type

incorporates two or more compartments in series, a

minimum volume of 500 gallons and uses its larger

volume of water to slow theflow velocity down

allowing the time required for simple buoyancy of

grease, FOG (fats, oils and grease) in water to cause

separation. That is why the physical size of the

Gravity Grease Interceptor is so much greater than

the physical size of the Hydromechanical Grease

Interceptor.

With both design types the key to proper sizing

is understanding the “Size” nomenclature since it is

different for each type.

The size of a Gravity Grease Interceptor is based on the actual volume of water theinterceptor will hold expressed in gallons. Common Sizes available today are 500, 750, 1000, 1250, 1500, 2000, 3000 Gallons


Slide65 l.jpg

The discharge from food grinders (garbage disposals) is almost universally required to bypass the grease interceptor.

The food grinder (and the associated pre-rinse station at the dishwasher ) is one of the single greatest sources of FOG. Yet despite that fact, most codes forbid food grinders discharge from passing through a grease interceptor.

Technologically there is no reason for the waste stream to bypass the grease interceptor if the solids have been removed.
