Diamond Valley Pork

QAF Meats is the largest producer of pigs and pork meat in Australia. In order to enhance its marketing and distribution capabilities, QAF Meats, through a joint-venture subsidiary Diamond Valley Pork Pty Ltd has opened a new abattoir in Laverton, Melbourne.

Project Design Brief

The company works within the guidelines of the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (‘AQIS’) approved Meat Safety and Quality Assurance Standard.

ACO's Solution

  • ACO Drain is an AQIS approved product and therefore meets the required standards of hygiene as for typical equipment for edible product areas.
  • The KlassikDrain (100mm wide) trench system with composite grates was installed in the application.
  • KlassikDrain K100 channels, made from corrosion resistant polymer concrete with integrally cast stainless edge rails, were configured to produce sloped runs.

Benefits

  • This ensures that runoff liquid could be transferred quickly and safely to the secondary stage of drainage.
  • The durable resin composite grates are ideal for the application having small apertures to inhibit bulky solids from being washed into the trench.
  • The captured solids are later removed with a ‘dry sweep
