How to drain large external areas efficiently?
Drainage system for Brewery loading area

In external areas of a brewery, the challenge is to ensure that drainage systems can withstand the highest load classes and quickly drain large quantities of rainwater containing solid particles. Your drainage system needs to be capable of dealing with the high volumes of heavy rainfall, sand, and dirt which can easily overload public sewers.

This requirement can be easily met if attention is paid to key areas with the aim of protecting water from people and people from water. Discover examples of solutions that are designed to perform in brewery logistics and delivery areas. ACO is also a well-known brand for it's surface water management solutions.

Drainage system components

ACO Infrastructure – MonoBloc

ACO MonoBloc is a drainage system with a monolithic design: The channel and grate are produced
from polymer concrete in one casting. The result is an extremely stable unit without loose parts. There is also no need for bonded joints. The unique monocast design guarantees maximum safety and stability, even under the extreme loads of large area drainage.

ACO StormBrixx®

ACO StormBrixx SD or HD are geocellular stormwater storage products that can be used for detention, retention, reuse and infiltration. The surface water is stored temporarily in the numerous voids in the system and can then be released in a controlled way. In this way, overloading of the sewer network is avoided in cases of heavy rainfall.

ACO Flow Restriction System

The discharged quantities from the ACO StormBrixx block storage are adjusted and controlled via the ACO flow restriction manhole, a manhole structure made of reinforced concrete with integrated flow
restriction valve for individual reduction of the discharge pipe cross section. In this way, collected surface water is discharged into the sewer in a controlled way, without overloading it.
