Interceptor Sizing

Whether you are a utility worker, municipal employee, food service establishment or involved in building construction or retrofit, these tools can be of assistance.  We will add more as they are developed, but here are some good ones to help determine the appropriate size interceptor to minimize FOG bypass and determine probable service requirements.

Schier calculator – A fairly simple, straightforward tool to use.  Adopted by the ASPE.

MIFAB calculator – a nice “fill in the blanks or add from the drop down menu” calculator with options to size by restaurant type or by DFUs.

Interceptor Whisperer calculator – in step with the Schier tool but with more detail.  Includes two-page worksheet.

Visit IW Consulting Service for more details on interceptor sizing and additional FOG program development assistance.
