How to prevent floor cracks in areas where hot water is used?
Drainage system for Barrel washing area

Rooms that are used to clean heavier equipment such as barrels are most often susceptible to floor cracks. Large amounts of high temperature water and sanitizing chemicals flow almost continuously onto the floor and then into the drainage. At the same time, loaded trolleys can damage the area where the floor connects to the drainage if the floor-drainage connection is not designed properly.

Contamination of barrels can be avoided by paying attention to the amount of hot water used for cleaning as well as limiting traffic loads in this area.
