How to handle large volumes of wastewater?
Drainage system for Cleaning in place stations

You need to discharge the wastewater directly to the drainage without any spillage. When handling large volumes of high temperature wastewater containing aggressive chemicals, this can be particularly challenging.

We recommend you to position your stainless steel drainage directly beneath the outlets of CIP stations. But do not forget to consider the drainage capacity, to ensure you have an air gap and that the drainage can be easily inspected.

It is essential that the layout of the drainage system and production equipmentis considered holistically at specification stage and that a hygienically designed, high capacity drainage system is used if large volumes of waste water are to be handled effectively.
