Brewery require a significant investment in terms of time, planning, money, and resources. They are available in different sizes, shapes, and materials, and can be customized to fit the layout, the design, and the needs of the brewery. And different suppliers offer different solutions, which can make it challenging to compare the prices and the quality of the floor drains that are available in the market. Equipping the floor drains with sensors, meters, and alarms can also add to the cost of the floor drains — and can require the brewery to invest in additional staff, expertise, and equipment to maintain and to operate them.
Brewery floor drains require regular maintenance, cleaning, and inspection to ensure their proper and safe operation — and ensure their efficiency and effectiveness. Brewery floor drains are generally extremely tough, but they can still be damaged, clogged, or contaminated. If equipped with sensors, meters, and alarms, these may require regular calibration, testing, and troubleshooting to ensure their accuracy and reliability.
While the safety benefits far outweigh them, there are still some safety risks staff and the customers if they are not installed, maintained, and operated in a proper and safe manner. That’s why it’s important to ensure that the floor drains are installed in a secure and stable manner — and that grates are replaced immediately after cleaning.
Because floor drains are used to collect, convey, and discharge wastewater from the brewery, unpleasant odors can linger if they are not properly maintained and operated. However, proper cleaning and maintenance should prevent this.
Like with safety, the mitigation of liability risk far outweighs any liability created by the drains. However, improperly maintained or operated floor drains can expose the brewery to legal and financial liability. Floor drains are subject to local, state, and federal regulations that are designed to protect the environment, the public health, and the public safety, and that require the brewery to install, maintain, and operate the floor drains in a manner that is consistent with the standards, the requirements, and the expectations of government and industry.
