Barbour Factory Chooses New Material With McDonald Water Storage Buffer Vessel

Barbour Factory


The famous British clothing brand Barbour were seeking for a hot water cylinder for their new stock warehouse in Newcastle.

Buffer VesselThey required a unit that could be tailored to suit their specific size and width requirements to fit into the plant room. Being specialists in bespoke cylinder manufacturing, we were able to provide them with the perfect replacement solution in the form of a 2000L Buffer Vessel after being specified by Meldrum Building Services, which was used as a thermal store to supply the heating system.

The cylinder was designed to operate at a maximum of 6 bar working pressure, including 2 internal baffle plates and an inspection manhole for future maintenance.

Andrew Clewes, Mechanical Project Manager at Meldrum Building Services said:

“McDonald Water Storage provided a great service and a great product! The drawings and technical information given was good and the product even arrived a week early”
