Chemical Processing Drainage

Chemical Processing Drainage

Chemical Manufacturing Drains

Trench drain systems vary widely in the field of chemical processing. There are many important factors to consider. Start by investigating any specific state requirements related to the industry. Keep in mind that they are different from state to state. 

Depending upon the conditions, fiberglass, stainless steel and vinyl ester are materials that hold up well to extreme heat and harsh chemicals.

Other considerations include:

  • High temperatures
  • Corrosive chemicals
  • Sanitary requirements
  • Diverting runoff, retention or both
  • Chemical reactions
  • Flammability


  • Reactive
    You will need to ensure that any chemicals that are being diverted are compatible with each other as well as the material makeup of the trench drain channel to avoid contamination or combustion.
  • Corrosive
    Will any of the chemicals be corrosive or high in temperature? Select a high-quality material for channels that is resistant to harsh conditions. Call our experts to guide you through your drainage project.
  • Sanitary
    If you are working in a facility that requires sanitary drainage, there are several drainage systems to choose from. We can assist in finding the right trench that is cost effective and meets the requirements of your project.
