Copper Washers

Copper Washers for Council Contract

McDonald Engineers were recently approached by a merchant who had a bit of unusual request - 'Can you supply copper washers for a council who needs them for a particular contract they are working on?' 

As you may be aware, copper washers are often used in piping, electronics and biomedical applications as they are a great conductor of heat and when very pure, a good conductor of electricity.  Copper is also quite a malleable material which means that when a copper washer is crushed between two surfaces, it can fill any imperfection.

All Cylinders Great and Small

McDonald Engineers has once again risen to the challenge, quite literally, by manufacturing a bespoke hot water cylinder, measuring in at 1830mm  in height and just 280mm in diameter, to the client's exact specifications as provided in the form of the old cylinder.
