Dimensioning separators

In this area of the ACO eServices you will find the dimensioning tool for grease or light liquid separators. Both tools will supply the Nominal Size (NS) of the desired separator which supports the product selection and is directly linked with the product selection tool.

There is also a pdf sheet with the relevant parameters for the sizing available.

Grease separator

Grease separator

According to EN 1825-2 there are three methods for sizing of a grease separators:

  • Sizing based on kitchen equipment
  • Sizing based on meals per day
  • Sizing based on number of slaughtered animals

 Depending on the selected calculation method, several specific data is requested for the dimensioning of the Nominal Size.

Light liquid separator

Light liquid separator

The sizing of light liquid separators is done according to EN 858. The following values have to be investigated:

  • factor FAME (ff)
  • factor for density of light liquid (fd)

Depending on the selected calculation method, several specific data is requested for the dimensioning of the Nominal Size and the sludge trape volume of the separator.
