Cooling tower solution

Published:  04 February, 2015

Watermiser was commissioned to design, manufacture and install a new GRP cooling tower complete with fan silencers and high level access platform, to replace the aging structural timber tower at the Invergordon Grain Distillery site.

Founded on docks of the River Clyde in Glasgow in 1844. Whyte & Mackay sells Single Malt and Blended Scotch whiskies, Liqueurs, and Vodkas. Their brands include the Whyte and Mackay blends; Dalmore, Jura, and Fettercairn single malts; Glayva liqueur; and Vladivar Vodka.

Having previously installed galvanised and painted cooling towers, the engineers onsite had seen at first hand the problems that occur when using materials not suitable for the aggressive nature of cooling tower water treatment chemicals, and therefore liked the idea of using a GRP cooling tower that would be completely inert to any type of water treatment chemical they choose to use.

A site visit to the nearby Glenmorangie Distillery to see the existing Watermiser GRP cooling towers operate, convinced the engineering team at Whyte & MacKay that the Watermiser GRP cooling towers being offered were the best cooling towers for the job.

Whyte & MacKay commented: “We are very pleased with the service provided by Watermiser and the tower is performing as expected. The installation was challenging due to space constraints and this was completed on time and without incident.”
