STANDARDS
One Gallon of Water One Gallon of Water One Cubic Foot One Cubic Foot Of Water
= 8.34 lbs. = 231 Cubic Inches = 7.49 Gallons = 62.43

CAPACITY - DEEP DRAWN BOWLS
BOWL SIZE CAPACITY IN GALLONS PER COMPARTMENT
10" x 14" x 5"2.75 Gal.
10" x 14" x 10"5.50 Gal.
14" x 16" x 10"9.35 Gal.

16" x 20" x 14"18.40 Gal.

CAPACITY - FC, FS & FE FABRICATED SINKS
L x W X D ÷ 321 = Gallons


DRAIN FLOW
DRAIN MODEL # I.P.S. DRAIN FLOW
K-6 (Basket Type)1-1/2"7 gpm
K-5 (Twist)1-1/2" 7 gpm
K-15 (Twist)2" 15 gpm

GREASE TRAP SIZING
Grease Trap sizing is determined by the total volume of water that will drain from a sink unit in one minute.

SIZE IN POUNDS = 1.50 x number of compartments x drain flow.
1.50 = 75% Volume of Sink x 2 (K Factor of Volume to weight)


SIGNIFICANT NSF REQUIREMENTS FOR SINKS
  • Drainboards, when provided, must have a splash and must be integrally welded to the sink.
  • Drainboards are to be sized such as that the LEFT TO RIGHT dimension of the drainboard is equal to or greater than the SMALLER DIMENSION OF THE SINK BOWL OPENING.
  • Sinks are considered as FOOD ZONE. Therefore, ONLY 300 Series, 200 Series and Type 430 Stainless Steel are the approved materials. (Type 400 & 409 Stainless Steel are not acceptable)
