Building Drainage

Drainage systems for Food & Beverage facilities

ACO is a global leader in the design and manufacture of drainage systems, whether they are used for general surface water management or in building drainage applications. “Creating the future of drainage“ is a part of our brand identity.

In food and beverage processing facilities, drainage has a major impact on hygienic performance and has a critical role play when it comes to food hygiene and ultimately public safety. Today, food and beverage products are processed in many different parts of the world and processors require the very highest production and quality standards across their entire supply chain. Drainage is an integral part of any food production and its quality directly affects production performance and food safety.

Our hygienically designed range of drainage products is fit for purpose, easy to clean and easy to maintain. As world’s leading drainage specialists, ACO is determined to help raise standards across every part of the process from drainage design through to installation, cleaning and ongoing maintenance. This commitment is embodied in our HygieneFirst philosophy.

Food and beverage manufacturing generates a large amount of waste water. Processing a kilo of meat generates around 1.2 litres of waste water, processing a litre of dairy product generates around 2.5 litres of waste water and incredibly, manufacturing a litre of beverage generates as much as six litres of waste water. The effective management of this waste water is critical to hygiene, employee safety and production continuity.
