How To Install New Drains for Hygienic Food & Beverage Processing Floors

New floor drains may be required for food processing plant, for various reasons;

1. Relocation to an existing facility with a flat floor.
2. To meet sanitary requirements for an existing facility.
3. Existing drain system has deteriorated beyond repair.




If the existing floor is flat, pitching the floor to the new drains must also be addressed during the design phase of the project. Facility professionals should hire a flooring consultant with extensive experience in food & beverage construction including; relocation, retrofit projects and new construction.
