ACO extra deep hygienic box channel

ACO extra deep channel design provides extended flow rates and higher retention capacities than existing channel solutions, making it perfect for use in breweries, soft drinks manufacturing facilities and any application which has to process high volumes of water. Available as a bespoke engineered solution , ACO‘s extra-deep channel is available in depths of up to 360mm.

ACO waster trap

In Food or Beverage productions, certain amounts of organic waste like meat, vegetable leafs, or solids like etiquettes, glass shards or bones frequently fall down on the floor and clog the conventional silt basket in very short time, demanding frequent maintenance. As the water cannot drain away, it causes delays in production, compromise work safety conditions and the risk of contamination is greatly increased.

L-shape and T-shape

The new channel is hygienically designed to optimise hygienic performance and cleanability, and is ideal for applications where there is a requirement to drain multiple pieces of machinery using one drainage line.

The L-shape is patented by ACO and is available for hygienic box channel widths of 200 and 300 mm.
