class Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcInterceptor : public Ifc4x3_rc1::IfcFlowTreatmentDevice

An interceptor is a device designed and installed in order to separate and retain deleterious, hazardous or undesirable matter while permitting normal sewage or liquids to discharge into a collection system by gravity.

HISTORY New entity in IFC2x4

Type Use Definition IfcInterceptor defines the occurrence of any interceptor; common information about interceptor types is handled by IfcInterceptorType. The IfcInterceptorType (if present) may establish the common type name, usage (predefined type), properties, materials, ports, composition, assignments, and representations. The IfcInterceptorType is attached using the IfcRelDefinesByType objectified relationship and is accessible by the IsTypedBy inverse attribute. If the IfcInterceptorType has ports or aggregated elements, such objects are reflected at the IfcInterceptor occurrence using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship.

Property Use Definition The property sets relating to this entity are defined by IfcPropertySet and attached by the IfcRelDefinesByProperties relationship. They are accessible by the IsDefinedBy inverse attribute. Property sets may also be specified at the IfcInterceptorType, defining the common property data for all occurrences of the same type. They are then accessible by the IsTypedBy inverse attribute pointing to IfcInterceptorType.HasPropertySets. If both are given, then the properties directly defined at IfcInterceptor override the properties defined at IfcInterceptorType. Refer to the documentation at the supertype IfcFlowTreatmentDevice and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: (All Types)

Pset_InterceptorTypeCommon (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)


Pset_InterceptorTypeGrease (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)




Pset_InterceptorTypePetrol (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)

Quantity Use Definition The quantities relating to this entity are defined by IfcElementQuantity and attached by the IfcRelDefinesByProperties relationship. They are accessible by the IsDefinedBy inverse attribute. The following base quantities are defined and shall be exchanged with the IfcElementQuantity.Name = ‘BaseQuantities’. Other quantities, being subjected to local standard of measurement, may be defined with another string value assigned to Name. In this case a valid value for MethodOfMeasurement shall be provided.


Material Use Definition The material of the IfcInterceptor is defined by IfcMaterialConstituentSet or as a fallback by IfcMaterial, and attached by the RelatingMaterial attribute on the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial relationship. It is accessible by the HasAssociations inverse attribute. Material information can also be given at the IfcInterceptorType, defining the common attribute data for all occurrences of the same type. The following keywords for IfcMaterialConstituentSet.MaterialConstituents[n].Name shall be used:

Body: The primary material from which the object is constructed. Cover: Material from which the cover or grating is constructed. Strainer: Material from which the strainer is constructed.

Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcInterceptor are defined by IfcDistributionPort and attached by the IfcRelConnectsPortToElement relationship. If the interceptor occurrence is defined by IfcInterceptorType, then the port occurrences must reflect those defined at the IfcInterceptorType using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Ports are specific to the IfcInterceptor PredefinedType as follows indicated by the IfcDistributionPort Name, PredefinedType, and FlowDirection:

Inlet (DRAINAGE, SINK): Inlet drainage. Outlet (DRAINAGE, SOURCE): Outlet drainage.
