Drainage Management for the Food Beverage Industry Food processing facilities are extremely sensitive environments with regard to food safety. As a result, our commitment to hygiene in this environment encompasses every aspect of the drainage process from initial design and installation, through to cleaning and maintenance. Food safety benefits Our products not only incorporate the hygienic design principles recommended by EHEDG, they are also the first to apply the EN 1672, EN ISO 14159 standards that are normally reserved for food contact equipment. They are designed not to harbour bacteria and to minimise the build-up of food particles and debris. Key design features include a sleek slope function, rounded corners with a minimum radius of 3mm and hygienically designed foul air traps (FATs) which mean that end users benefit from a fully drainable system that has no stagnant odours caused by waste water. Our products are also designed to connect hygienically with surrounding floors to minimise the risk of bacterial growth throughout the drainage system. Cost control Management of costs is a major factor in business today. Commercial kitchen equipment including drainage and grease separation systems should fulfil its function with low operational cost in mind throughout its entire lifespan. ACO drainage and grease separation systems are designed so they can be easily maintained, reducing associated cleaning costs and maximising hygienic performance. Health safety Minimizing the risk of injury in the workplace is of prime importance to any commercial kitchen facility. It’s essential that your facility has a drainage system which improves health and safety conditions during cleaning, empting and operation, while ensuring hygiene is always front of mind.
