"Rectifier" and "Interceptor" might be terms you hear in a sci-fi movie or they might be terms you hear on a job site. If you heard them on the job site, what would they mean?
A rectifier is a device that converts alternating current to direct current and is used to recharge batteries or supply direct current for other purposes. An interceptor is a device for trapping grease, sand, hair, and such, and is installed in the drains of certain plumbing fixtures.
