A top class cylinder for the world class National Library of Scotland
McDonald Engineers can now claim their POWERflow unvented cylinder is in a national institution following a recent project which saw one if its commercial grade cylinders being installed in the National Library of Scotland.
The POWERflow was installed as part of a routine maintenance programme and due to the height of the building, Scotland’s largest library required a 4 bar working pressure copper cylinder manufactured to their exact specification.
McDonald Engineers’ answer was to produce a commercial grade POWERflow with customised connections, to provide a higher flow rate than standard cylinders. McDonalds also amended their standard design to simplify the installation process, by positioning the connections in convenient and easily accessible locations.
Jamie Stewart, McDonald Engineers Sales Director explained why many commercial contracts were insisting on bespoke copper cylinders, “The benefits of copper in terms of its increased thermal transfer and its bacteria killing properties are well documented, however our ability to manufacture bespoke cylinders to exact specifications means that clients and architects do not need to compromise on what they require.”
He continued, “By increasing the connection sizes and upgrading the copper thickness, we can enhance working pressures to meet the demands of the project. And if you are creating a bespoke cylinder you can also look to minimise the installation time and costs by positioning connections in the perfect location.”
