All of the variations and material options aforementioned are applicable to the stainless steel units. Besides the kitchen-food preparation areas, stainless steel sanitary floor drains and/or sinks are ideal for breweries, dairies, creameries and similar food processing applications.
The prime considerations which must be addressed when selecting a stainless floor drain are: 1. Sanitation - Will it create any hazardous unsanitary condition or violate a plumbing code? 2. Performance and Safety- Will it safely do the job you want it to do? This pertains to flow and loading characteristics. 3. Aesthetic Considerations- Will it compliment the area where it is to be installed? Let's review two of the criteria for selection in more depth.
Sanitation: Each floor drain should be designed so that it conforms to existing plumbing code standards. The body must not have hidden crevices and pockets in which food particles and waste matter may lodge. A drain so designed will not encourage the build-up of vermin and offensive odors. The inside of the drain must be free from obstructions which may prevent self-scouring flow through the drain. The drain body and top must be made of materials capable of withstanding the corrosiveness of the waste which will flow into it. In typical applications, the drain material should last the life of the building.
Performance and Safety: Every floor drain must have a large enough outlet to carry away the anticipated volume of water that will flow into it. A large top is required to insure fast entrance of the surface water into the drain without causing water ponding in the area to be drained.
