Express Service on Bespoke Vented Cylinder

Bespoke Hot Water Cylinder Highlands

McDonald Engineers UK has demonstrated its operational excellence and commitment to customer service by manufacturing a bespoke, grade 2 vented cylinder in under 3 hours to supply to a customer in Orkney. 

The order for the direct vented cylinder was received at 2 o’clock in the afternoon, however the tank required a shell size of 600 x 400mm (slightly smaller than McDonald Engineers UK's standard offering) and featured a custom connection layout to match the existing system.

With regular deliveries to the Scottish Highlands, McDonald Engineers UK was able to fast track the manufacture of the cylinder to ensure it was included in the delivery load, which was leaving that night.

McDonald Engineers’ Managing Director, Jamie Stewart, explained “The client was keen to replace on a like-for-like basis and was delighted at both the service and cost of the copper cylinder.”

He continued, “People often assume a bespoke cylinder is an expensive option, however when you take everything into consideration, including down time, installation costs and amendments to pipework, our approach is often the easiest and cost-effective solution.”
