As the grease trap moves from a small capacity unit in the kitchen to a large capacity, external interceptor, the plumbing engineer must address the issue of flow maintenance of the greasy waste piping to the external interceptor. Most fat, oil, and grease (FOG) begins to congeal at about 100°F (37.8°C). Typically, the greasy waste, sanitary piping is buried below the frost line where soil temperatures can range from 48°F (8.9°C) to 80°F (26.7°C) depending on your projects geographic location. Therefore additional heat must be added to the greasy waste, sanitary piping in order to maintain the flow of the FOG waste to the external interceptor. The Chromalox system is designed to keep the grease removal piping maintained at 110°F (43.3°C) to keep the FOG flowing from the kitchen to the grease interceptor.
