McDonald Engineers UK has demonstrated its coppersmith expertise with the manufacture of this highly complex copper back boiler to provide a like for like replacement for a faulty mild steel model.
Whilst the company is widely recognised as the UK’s market leader for the design and manufacture of copper hot water cylinders, McDonald Engineers UK’s reputation as a coppersmith stretches back over 70 years, with a portfolio of projects which includes everything from copper whisky stills to complete plumbing systems.
McDonald Engineers UK was supplied with the old leaking back boiler and asked to provide an exact replicate but in the more efficient copper material.
The project team carried out the necessary survey and measurements before constructing the back boiler in grade 1 copper to provide a strong, robust solution.
McDonald Engineers’ UK Sales Director, Jamie Stewart, explained, “Our core focus is producing our high performance hot water cylinders, however our highly skilled team is more than capable of tackling these types of projects using the traditional manual skills that we previously relied upon.”
He continued, “It is our combination of technical knowledge, manual skills and operational efficiency as well as our commitment to delivering our clients with the very best service possible, which makes McDonald Engineers the first port of call.”
