INSTALLING NEW DRAINS | FOOD PROCESSING
New drains may be required due to plant relocation into a new facility, or to meet sanitary requirements for their existing facility. If the existing floor is flat, sloping the floor must also be addressed during the construction design phase.
The three most common new drain issues that must be addressed include:
- New drains need to be set at the correct elevation/height.
- New floor toppings need to interface properly with the new drains.
- Puddling around the drains must be prevented.
