McDonald Engineers UK has ensured a five star exclusive wedding venue didn’t let down by manufacturing and delivering an emergency replacement Grade 1 vented hot water cylinder in less than 48 hours.
The previous cylinder had been supplied by another manufacturer only 4 years ago, however the inferior materials used could not cope with the harshness of the environment. The resulting corrosion caused the cylinder to leak at the bottom spinning.
Unfortunately for the installer, the manufacturer of the previous cylinder was not willing to manufacture a bespoke solution and therefore could not supply a suitable replacement.
McDonald Engineers supplied a 500 litre indirect vented hot water cylinder measuring 2000mm x 700mm and manufactured with grade 1 copper to withstand the toughest conditions and water types. The cylinder also featured two immersion heater bosses to allow them to be fitted on site and provide essential back up to the primary heat source.
To minimise the installation times on site, McDonald Engineers ensured all the connections were positioned exactly to match the existing cylinder.
McDonald Engineers UK’s Sales Manager, David Stewart, explained “Unfortunately, some manufacturers have resorted to reducing the specification of their cylinders in order to make their products appear to be more competitive. Sadly, this often results in situations like this project.”
He continued, “We have refused to compromise on the superior quality of our products which makes them some of the most efficient and durable on the market today. Our products are designed to outperform and built to outlast all other cylinders.”
