Trench drain manufactured in stainless steel
Food processing facilities, breweries, wineries, bottling plants, laboratories, pharmaceutical facilities, health care facilities, commercial kitchens.
ACO Stainless trench drain is required in commercial food processing, bottling plants, breweries, wineries and other facilities with a high hygienic requirement. a
ACO Stainless trench drain is available in several versions and offers a variety of benefits, including:
All ACO Stainless products are pickled and passivated after manufacturing. Bending, cutting, and welding during the manufacturing process results in damage to the stainless surface that can lead to corrosion. Pickling and passivation processes restore physical properties of stainless steel, increasing corrosion resistance, providing a smooth uniform and attractive appearance and extending the life of the product.
Drainage systems are a particularly important niche for the persistence of listeria and can be a source of food contamination. Poorly specified drainage leads to costly ongoing cleaning and maintenance and at worst it can result in food contamination. ACO is committed to raising industry standards by designing and promoting hygienic products for multiple commercial applications. Hygienic drainage systems reduce the risk of food contamination and optimize total cleaning costs of your organization. ACO drainage systems prioritize health and safety in the food sector for employees and end users. ACO efficient and hygienic designs reduce the usage of volatile cleaning agents that affect indoor air quality while promoting employee safety.
Long Term Value
The properties of stainless steel make it a powerful candidate in material selection. When total life cycle cost is considered, stainless steel is often the least expensive option. In the building and construction industry, stainless steel is selected due to:
These features make stainless steel an obvious choice for demanding drainage applications. There is a variety of different stainless steels available. Austenitic stainless steels are the most widely used and encompass the generic 304 and 316L grades. These material grades are ideal for many applications found in food processing, dairy, commercial kitchens, pharmaceutical, chemical, winery and brewery industries. 304 grade stainless steel is the most common material available but grade 316L provides superior corrosion resistance and is ideal for conditions where extreme heat or chemicals are used. Stainless steel is one of the most sustainable material choices available and is 100% recyclable. One benefit is that it reduces the consumption, expenses, energy and time to mine other valuable resources. On average the recycled content of stainless steel is 60%. Recycled stainless steel is beneficial to the environment as it consumes less energy and resources to produce.
RELEVANT LOAD STANDARDS
In Canada, the CSA B79-08 (R2013) is the most relevant standard. However, it is designed primarily for floor drains, and (since the 2022 release) addresses linear trench drains through a reference to EN1433. ACO has independent certification for trench drain grates to EN 1433 : 2002 Drainage channels for vehicular and pedestrian areas. To assist with evaluating and comparing CSA, ASME and EN standards to ACO products, a guide is provided in the ACO literature. Load class certification for each product is available upon request.
Slip resistance is critical for user safety in pure water environments or wet floor areas. ACO recommends alignment between the slip resistance of the floor and of the grate to provide a smooth transition and not create a trip hazard.
ACO's trench drains can be customized to fit specific configurations. Typical nonstandard stainless steel drainage can include custom widths, special grates,
and unique depth configurations. ACO has years of experience with these types of applications, and in instances where a standard or modified standard product
cannot fulfil the project, please contact us.
