Manufacturing Drainage

Manufacturing Drainage

There are a multitude of variables to consider when planning drainage systems for manufacturing facilities. Weight loads of any equipment or vehicle traffic is one of the first considerations. Knowing the types of fluids that could potentially flow through the system is also a key factor to planning. Does it need to be sanitary? will there be harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, or flammable liquids?

In addition to these factors is accessibility. It will be necessary to clean the drain from time to time so getting to it will need to be planned as well.
