Food & Beverage


With the widest array of industrial-strength stainless steel sanitary drains designed specifically for food processing facilities, and custom fabrication capabilities, there is no project Zurn can’t tackle. Whether you are designing a new food processing facility, renovating an existing space, or retrofitting an existing drainage system, Zurn is your single source provider and trusted business partner.

Zurn Stainless Drains” are built in accordance with USDA standards and are NSF listed. We stand by our product and will stand with you through the design, installation, and operation of your drainage system.


Different types of food and beverage facilities have different drainage system demands:

We understand that facility operating conditions drive the specific demands placed on a drainage system. Every food & beverage market has nuanced differences. For instance, meat and poultry processing facilities are harder on drainage systems than dairy product facilities in terms of wastewater volume, cleaning chemicals used, equipment traffic, and temperature changes. The processing floor for a brewery or winery is very different from a bottling line, too. Same product… different operating conditions…different drainage needs.

We use this knowledge and more than 100 years of industry-leading experience to design our drains to meet the harshest operating conditions, provide flexibility in configuration, and keep your business flowing.


Running a food & beverage facility is a complex business. It requires planning and significant investment in people, property, equipment, and processes. You also need a thorough understanding of USDA and/or FDA guidelines, including safety and sanitation regulations... What you don’t need is extra stress.

Zurn is your partner in designing the drainage system for your food & beverage facility. Our team of building drainage experts, application engineers and CAD designers can assist with product selection, configuration options, and preparing submittal drawings. If our standardized product does not meet your exact needs, we’ll work with you to design a custom drainage system that does.


We’ve built a comprehensive set of digital tools and resources for plumbing design engineers and contractors. On our “Stainless Drains” product page you’ll find our standard offering. As you drill into each product category, you’ll find a suite of robust search filters to help narrow your search to the right drain for your needs.
