The brewery trench drain is a necessity when planning the brewery. Trench drain systems in breweries are best to be in stainless steel so they don’t corrode or deform. They are usually sloped ¼” per foot.

Sloped systems with 4” grates are usually the starting point. Plastic, stainless steel, bronze and cast iron have all been used but in areas with chemicals stainless steel is the best solution as it doesn’t react to the chemicals used as much as the others. Plastic grates can become warped over time.
