When to clean
In connection with NFPA96, a system for measuring fat deposits is established to trigger a need for cleaning. The measurement method is a depth gauge comb, shown above, which is scraped along the surface of the horizontal and / or vertical conduit. A measured depth of 2,000 microns (0.078 inches) indicates the need to clean to eliminate the risk of fire. The comb also includes a point measurement in the critical zone which is 3175 microns (0.125 inch), with such a thickness, the conduits, made of 16 gauge galvanized steel, will not be able to withstand the heat of the fire and will open leaving the spread.
