From small batch brewing companies to large breweries, safety and sanitation facilities are at the top of the priority list of any owner/operator/manager. They should also be the primary consideration when choosing a floor drainage system, but they are not the only consideration.

You need a drainage system that is fast and easy to clean so that employees can go back to the most important thing-creating quality products for your consumers.

The following are many of the most common questions when choosing a brewery or brewery drainage system.

What types of floor drains are there?

The two main drainage options for the brewery/brewery environment are traditional trench drainage and trough drainage.

The traditional ditch drainage ditch consists of a wide drainage ditch covered with a heavy grille. On the other hand, the trough drain pipe eliminates the grille and instead chooses a narrow slot. Both are effective drainage solutions for your facility, although they are certainly not equal.

How to clean the floor drain?

First, you want to choose a drainage system made of stainless steel so that it can withstand the extreme temperatures and harsh chemicals that may be present in the winery environment. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel also helps to reduce the growth of bacteria and fundamentally create safer facilities.

The method of cleaning trench drains is to remove the large grids one by one, thoroughly clean the drainage channels with a brush and/or applicable chemicals, and then clean each grid to help minimize all edges, corners and gaps Bacteria grow around.

Trough drains only require brushes and/or paddle tools to clean. The brush can be inserted through the slot and scrubbed along each part of the drainage channel, and the paddle can be used to move the debris along the channel to the collection basin. This usually only takes a few minutes per 10 foot section.

The trough drain pipe made of stainless steel can also withstand all the necessary cleaning chemicals you use to keep your facility spotless.

Can I empty the water tank into the floor drain?

As long as you choose the correct drainage system, you can completely pour the water tank into it.

Then you will want to choose a drain that can handle huge flows at the same time.

Ditch drain pipes are very suitable for this situation because they are open and can discharge a large amount of liquid at the same time. However, depending on the flow rate, you may experience a lot of splashing, so the end result may be that the floor gets wet and requires more work to clean up.

Common trough drainage options can withstand up to 27 gallons per linear foot per minute, which is more than enough if you need to empty the tank.

Is it difficult to install the floor drain?

Traditional trench drain pipes and trough drain pipes are not particularly difficult to install, because they must be wrapped in concrete and properly leveled. However, in some cases, the trough drain pipe is easier to install because it is manufactured in a longer section, reducing the time required for leveling and connection to subsequent sections.

Do I need to install a fishing basin?

Although the drainage system can be made without a collection basin, they are always recommended because they can make the cleaning process easier and more efficient when used with a strainer basket.

The collection basin can also collect debris and lost items that you may want to retrieve, in case they fall into the drainage channel, such as rings, keys, and other small items.

Which drainage system is best for my brewery or brewery?

The best drainage system for your brewery or brewery depends on what you want from it and how you want to live the future.

Traditional trench drainage systems are cheaper than the previous trench drainage systems. They seem to be the simplest solution, but they have some caveats.

First of all, trench drains require heavy grate covers, which are troublesome, require time to clean, and may contain harmful bacteria that should not be found in beverage processing facilities.

Second, their wide drainage channel openings are not ideal for breweries and breweries, because in these places, tanks and stills may be emptied in large quantities at once. Essentially, trench drains can help create as much confusion as possible because they help prevent it.

On the other hand, the upfront cost of trough drains may be higher, but in the long run, they can actually save you time and money. No heavy-duty grate can simplify the cleaning process, and the additional benefits of cleaning-in-place consideration can help you clean the drainage channels more thoroughly.
