ACO has a wide range of heavy duty linear drains for industrial, petro, chemical and military applications. ACO's technical support team can advise in different solutions that can go up to load class F or 100 tons.
have a need for durable, strong trench drains able to handle tanks, airplanes and other traffic. .
applications demand the highest load classes and best product design to meet and exceed requirements.
Petro and Chemical
applications are sensitive environments where liquids other than water are collected into the drainage.
applications that demand the highest load class for trench drain products.
ACO works closely with engineers to design the best solutions and ensure proper drainage in heavy duty applications and sensitive areas where other liquids other than water may be running into the drainage
Heavy duty applications for trench drainage:
• Auto Industry
• Steel plants
• Recycling plants
• Glass and paper plants
Heavy Duty applications in industries and manufactures demand rugged trench drains with the ability to handle heavy machinery, high liquid intake and other factors.
Chemical & Oil Industry - Efficient drainage is essential in many petro chemical applications from manufacturing and processing to storage. ACO's options for chemical resistance, flame retardency and temperature resistance materials can ensure optimal performance in addition to exceeding load requirements.
The processing industries such as petrochemical, oil, gas and coal require surface drainage in areas restricted to chemicals as well as providing surface drainage for water collected in run offs.
These industries may require heavy duty products for heavy vehicles. Typical use of trench drain in these applications include:
• Maintenance facilities
• Plant bunding
• Tanker filling locations
• Wash down facilities

Holloman Air Force Base, NM
Military Bases need durable trench drains capable of handling extreme loads like tanks, military aircraft and ancillary traffic. In addition 'Made in the US' is a standard requirement on federally funded projects for the military - ACO products meet and exceed both the load requirements and buy American stipulations.
Military Bases typical applications of trench drains:
• Washdown areas for utilitary vehicles
• Bunding to capture aviation gas spill
• Maintenance facilities
• De-icing facilities
• Naval facilities
