Commercial Kitchen Planning Kitchen Drainage

Floor Level Grids And Siphons. In various zones of the kitchen it is necessary to have floor level grills for:

Spillage during work.

Waste water produced by equipment.

The water used to clean the floor and appliances.


The best drainage grids in use consist of a stainless steel basin complete

a) a containment border for modular grids;

b) a sloping base to channel the water;

c) a collection trough allowing the water to drain away via a siphon

Floor level grids are recommended in all those places where the possible spillage of water or liquids occurs, to avoid the danger of slipping.
As an alternative to the usage of pre-manufactured basins, modular floor level grids can be made by creating a drainage channel with a sloping bottom and one or more drain siphons.
Obviously, the floor grids are sized and structured according to the needs of the each kitchen. All kitchen drains must be fitted with siphons. The pip ing and the various special pieces that make up the drainage system can be installed in the ceiling of the rooms beneath the kitchen or in the floor itself.

Appliances must be linked to the drainage network via siphons (to avoid the return of odours). Appliances, whose chambers or wells are used for food products, must drain via a stand pipe to avoid a backflow from the drainage network.
The drainage network, to be in line with current regulations, should convey the waste water to a system for primary treatment. The size and structure of this sys tem (the removal of fats) should be analysed from time to time to make sure it is still appropriate for the needs (for the concentration of fats) of the kitchen, the space available linked to the frequency of maintenance and the characteristics of the kitchen (type of cooking).
