Testing of pre-treatment samples assures businesses are operating within their permitted limits and helps reduce clogging of pipes from FOG. A known volume of sample is passed through a pre-conditioned filter that traps the FOG. Solvent is used to extract FOG from the filter, which is placed in a pre-weighed pan and dried. The residual residue is weighed and the concentration of FOG is determined through calculation.
