Built To Last, Even In the Toughest Environments
Customer: Michel's Bakery, Inc.
Location: Philadelphia, PA
Product: Food Safe Stainless Steel Slot Drain with Flush Flo™ and CIP
Michel's Bakery is an 100,000 square foot industrial food processing plant, producing top-quality baked goods from their facility in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They are family-owned and operated, and have been in business since 1898. They have stringent quality control and attention-to-detail, and this extends to the infrastructure they use in their facilities.
Due to the nature of the many products used by the bakery, traditional floor drains were often needing to be repaired or replaced.
Fruits, food acids, and sugar attack and wear away at the drainage systems in processing areas, a common problem for many different food processing facilities.
How Food Safe Drains Helped
After researching replacement options for their drains, Michel's Bakery reached out and got in touch with our Food Safe Drain Experts.
“I decided to retrofit 3 twenty-foot sections of floor drains in our mixing area.” said Jon Liss, President of Michel's Bakery.
"In a timely fashion you supplied drawings and specifications to match my needs. I placed an order and the materials were received on time, properly packed and protected for delivery."
"Installation was a breeze." said Jon.
Results and Future Plans
When later asked about his satisfaction with his drains, Jon shared a list of his favorite features with us.
"The drains are all heavy-duty stainless steel and should last for decades, are easily cleaned and sanitized, and can withstand forklift traffic without a problem. I am proud to show off my slot drains to visitors to my plant and I plan to install Food Safe Slot Drains in more areas of my facility."
He went on to mentioned a plan for the future:
"Any new facility that I build will be spec'd with Slot Drain.”
