Requirements for an industrial drainage system
What characteristics should a drainage system have to guarantee a smooth operation?
1. Extreme loads and dynamic forces
Industrial /logistic facilities can create a very demanding environment for surface drainage systems. Constant traffic by HGVs and forklifts impose immense pressure and force on the channels/gratings.
Linear drainage is not only exposed to heavy loads but also dynamic forces caused by vehicles braking, turning and accelerating when trafficking the surface area.
System design, materials and installation need to be strong, highly stable and secure in order to withstand heavy loads and dynamic forces.
2. High capacity
Industrial and logistic facilities are ever-increasing in size and scale to achieve cost-effective and efficient production and distribution.
For cost-efficient and reliable drainage of extensive external surface areas, high-capacity channel systems are increasingly preferred to achieve savings for the client regarding installation of drainage in operational areas.
3. High flow rates
Extensive areas can generate high volumes of surface water. Unpredicted heavy rainfall can overwhelm drainage systems if they are not designed to accommodate climate changes.
Surface drainage systems require efficient intake and appropriate channel sizing through accurate hydraulic calculations to ensure the surface area will be effectively drained and maintain profitable operations for the client.
4. Contaminated surfaces
Industrial surfaces can become contaminated during day-to-day operations. Tyre wear (microplastics), brake dust, fuel hydrocarbons as well as petrol, oil and other contaminants can be present on the surface without any knowledge.
A combined drainage and filtration system can treat surface water at source before it is released back into sewer systems or watercourses.
”With so many large industrial areas being built, it is essential that surface water drainage is handled effectively to prevent flooding. We can assist with the design process, conception to completion and value engineering options to ensure the best drainage solutions for any situation”.
