Hygienic Drainage Design Within the Meat Processing Industry

In the meat processing industry it is vital to maintain high hygiene standards to ensure the fresh meat goods are safe for consumers. On a daily basis regular and thorough cleaning regimes are in place to avoid the risk of contamination.

There are a few factors to consider when designing a factory, which will help to contribute to a hygienic environment. A drainage system and the surrounding flooring needs to work together to provide an efficient rate of waste water removal. The flooring must provide appropriate falls, which are directed towards either a drain channel or a drain gully within a processing area, so the waste water does not start to pool.

During processing, the meat industry produces solid fats and skeleton waste, which are required to be removed from the area during wash down. It is important that any solid debris is filtered out of the waste water via a drain trash basket, which sits within a drain channel outlet or drain gully.

An anti-backflow valve can also be installed onto a drainage system to close off the drain outlet pipe in the event of a blockage. The valve therefore prevents any waste water re-entering the meat processing area, removing the risk of contaminating fresh goods.

To provide safety under foot for people working in the processing area amongst meats, oils and greases, an anti-slip stainless steel drain cover, in a ladder design with a scalloped edge, can work with the tread of a person’s footwear to prevent unnecessary slips and falls.
