Fans and roof-extract units have been supplied for the new bottling plant of one of Scotland’s premier manufacturers of single malt whiskies.
The bottling depot and offices of the manufacturers of single malt whisky are on a 12-acre site chosen for its proximity to the existing bottling facility. The production facility comprises two manufacturing halls covering 10,000m2 and the office building which occupies 2,000m2. Consulting engineers Blyth and Blyth carried out the project along with main contractor Kier Scotland.
Six ‘Quietflow’ Twin DCVs fans were provided for the new bottling plant as well as BIFLOW bifurcated axial fan, specially developed for handling hostile air conditions. They are designed so that the throughput totally by-passes the motor, avoiding any possible detrimental effect. In addition a Skyflow SSMF and two Revolution SLCs were also supplied.
The ‘Quietflow’ Twin DCV is a robust, lightweight unit with a galvanized sheet steel casing which has flame retardant, acoustic lining for much quieter sound performance, providing ‘demand control ventilation’ (DCV). Significant energy savings are made by effective DCV, which is a recognised method of ensuring a building is ventilated cost effectively while maximising indoor air quality based on its occupancy. The three main controls elements to the DCV package comprise sensors, zone controllers and wall controllers.
The Skyflow SSMF is a lightweight horizontal-discharge, mixed-flow, roof-extract unit that has a low-profile design and is UV-stabilised for durability, offering good performance and low-noise characteristics. The Revolution SLC is a robust, long-cased, axial fan from Elta Fans, fitted with adjustable-pitch, aerofoil-section bladed impellers. This hardworking axial fan offers performance combined with strength, durability and corrosion resistance characteristics.
