Which drainage system will withstand aggresive wastewater for decades?
Drainage system for Hot production area

Your brewery needs to be watertight and easy-to-clean. If you want to invest in durable solution, you need to install stainless steel drainage system. Plastic system will not withstand the high temperatures since it starts deforming at 140°F. Cast iron on the other hand is not chemically resistant.

When you have chosen the right material, do not forget to consider the design. It is proven fact that only ACO's hygienically designed drains are 100% cleanable and hence do not compromise hygiene.
For a durable, hygienic and easy-to-clean solutions, specify a hygienically designed stainless steel drainage system. Silt baskets will help you to collect hop debris to prevent blockages.
