Drainage systems are a particularly important niche for the persistence of listeria and can be a source of food contamination. Yet drainage is often out of sight and therefore out of mind. At ACO, we have decided to step up and meet this challenge.
Effective waste water management via a properly designed drainage system ensures optimal hygiene and also minimises the risks of disruption to production which can be caused by drainage blockages, floods and leaks. When designing your drainage system, it’s important to take a holistic approach to specification.
Until now, no proper study or research has taken place to investigate the behaviour of common floor-drainage connections and develop a precise design guideline. As a result, Sika – a market-leading resin flooring company, and ACO - a leader in the development and manufacture of hygienic drainage systems, joined forces and adopted a professional and scientific approach to this issue.
Mario Cvitkovic shared his expert view on what affects durability of the floor in food processing facility. Discover why the floor is only as good as the drainage.
ACO is proud to be a Gold sponsor of the EHEDG World Congresses since 2012. The EHEDG World Congress on Hygienic Engineering & Design is the flagship event of the European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) and takes place every two years at different locations worldwide.
We at ACO believe that drainage is an important attribute of kitchen performance. Good drainage mitigates the risk of bacteria coming into the premises and makes the cleaning process safer and cheaper.
ACO is committed to ultimate hygienic performance. We design solutions with cost efficiency in mind but with absolutely no compromise in terms of food safety. We call it HygieneFirst philosophy.

The research findings of the Fraunhofer Institute IVV Dresden clearly show that the use of ACO’s hygienically designed channel dramatically improves cleanability. Hence, reducing the risk of bacterial contamination and ultimately helping food manufacturing companies and foodservice outlets improve the safety of their facilities and their products.
The stainless steel push-fit pipe system is designed for grey or black water. ACO pipe offers 40+ years product life thanks to its material properties. Easy installation and handling on site is ensured by push-fit assembly system and available cutting tools.
ACO kerb is a reliable wall protection that prevents walls from impacts (200 mm height in rooms with traffic up to 1 ton and 300 mm height with traffic up to 5 tons as recommended by EHEDG), water or chemical ingress, or other damages associated with traffic and production process. It is suitable for any processing area.
ACO LipuSmart combines four functions in one smart, compact solution: grease separator, sampling unit, overall control unit and lift plant.
ACO lifting plants transport wastewater over the backflow level and protect basements from flooding by water entering the sewage system.
During chemical-physical wastewater treatment, a flocculant is added the organically polluted wastewater.
Wastewater as a innovative heat source become particularly attractive where high quantities of waste water and temperatures are present.
In the commercial buidlings the use of grease separators for the pre-treatment of waste water is mandatory. In the case of full disposal, the contents of the separator are completely emptied, cleaned and filled at regular intervals by a disposal company.
ACO ShowerDrain shower channels are produced in Germany. Take a look at ACO production in Philippsthal.
The new floor system ACO ShowerFloor combines maximum flexibility in every aspect - surface, inclination, lines, surface / cover - with high stability and quick, easy installation. See the installation of the new shower system.

Climate effects are increasingly extreme. Summer is now characterised by dry periods with heat followed by intensive rainfall and frost periods alternate with positive temperatures in Winter. The weather is unpredictable. This factor has to be considered when planning drainage for flat roofs.
