ACO can provide accurate channel recommendations with its proprietary software. ‘Hydro’ is a purpose written, hydraulic design program modeled on differential calculus for non-uniform flow in open channels. The program was further refined with empirical data, following a series of experiments modelling lateral intake into trenches.
ACO can help you configure your own geocellular stormwater tank to facilitate stormwater retention, detention or infiltration based on the hydraulic, structural and maintenance requirements of the project.
Aesthetics of Pavement & Grate
To help guide you through the range of grate designs the ACO Grate Visualizer tool marries together pavement surfaces and grate designs. Select the pavement which reflects your project and the software will guide you through the recommended grate styles and designs and material options for your application.
ACO can provide accurate grate intake performance recommendations with its proprietary software. The hydraulic intake capacities of ACO’s grates have been independently measured by experimentation at a leading international university under varying flow rates and catchment approach slopes.
Run Layout Design
To make specification, ordering and site work easy, ACO can tailor a layout using CAD and other bespoke programs to illustrate (in plan and elevation) required positions and layouts of trench runs. A bill of materials is also produced.
Building Drainage Resources
ACO can provide accurate channel recommendations with its proprietary software ‘Hydro’. ACO can also provide a channel capacity and drowned orifice calculation to help determine the maximum discharge through the outlet pipe.
Custom Hygienic Floor Trough
When standard channels and grates are not appropriate, a number of features can be customized to ensure the unit meets required performance criteria, site or customer requirements. Lengths above 10’ will join together utilizing bolting flanges and gaskets*. (*All modular sections include all necessary hardware and accessories.)
Custom Slot Drain
When standard 0.8” Slot20 channels and outlet boxes are not appropriate, a number of features can be customized to ensure the unit meets required performance criteria, site or customer requirements. Lengths above 10’ will join together utilizing bolting flanges and gaskets*. (*All modular sections include all necessary hardware and accessories.)
Interactive Factory Map
ACO’s interactive map of a beverage bottling plant allows you to step in the specific environment and see how drainage ensures continuity in high performance production facilities. ACO provides the full hygienic solution from wall protection to NSF certified floor drainage along with a push-fit pipe system.
