ACO, a world leader in drainage technology, will set new standards for hygiene when it lines up a range of stainless steel products at this month’s Gulfood Manufacturing.
A leading food and beverage processing event, Gulfood Manufacturing will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) in Dubai, UAE, from October 27 to 29.
The Germany-based ACO, which has its regional office in Dubai, will showcase advanced stainless steel gullies and channels developed specifically for use in a wide range of hygiene-critical food processing, dairy and commercial catering operations.
The new gullies and channels are part of ACO’s extensive range of standard and custom-built building drainage products, which offers hygienic, corrosion-resistant, aesthetically-pleasing and cost-effective solutions that are easy to install and maintain, according to a spokesperson for the Jebel Ali-based ACO Systems.
“The new HygieneFirst stainless steel ACO gully and channel range is designed and manufactured to the latest European hygienic standards, using high-quality austenitic stainless steel grades 304 and 316 fully pickle passivated to optimise corrosion resistance,” she said. “To maximise their hygienic properties, each gully and channel unit has been developed to ensure the best possible flow characteristics, with rounded internal corners, smooth welds and continuously welded butt joints to minimise bacteria traps.”
The new ACO HygieneFirst stainless steel gully and channel range is available in a number of versions, which offer different flow rates, grating designs, sizes and spigot outlet diameters, making them suitable for use in food and beverage processing and production operations.
ACO will also display at the event its extensive range of modular stainless steel and hygienic drainage channels, including the ACO Pipe and ancillary products.
Additionally, the company will aim to promote its bespoke manufacturing services, which it said, can help architects, installers and end-users improve the efficiency and functionality of their building and process operations, while minimising both build and maintenance costs.
