New cooling towers at Joseph Heler

13 July 2011

A UK cheesemaker is benefiting from the installation of two new custom-designed cooling towers made by Carter Environmental Engineers of Birmingham

Joseph Heler Cheese, based in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, were experiencing problems with two old cooling towers at their creamery in Hatherton near Nantwich, prompting the need for a far more efficient and hygienic system.

Mark Beavon, Director at family-run Joseph Heler Cheese, commented: “Carter Environmental Engineers were highly recommended and they have exceeded expectations by providing the answers to our very specific dairy industry requirements”.

He added: “Very importantly, Carter listened and gave us exactly what we wanted. Their new cooling towers have brought substantial benefits to our operation”.

The installation included adapting Carter’s Sandringham B Cooling Towers to utilize Joseph Heler’s preference for stainless steel dairy pipe fittings and stainless steel air-actuated float valves, instead of standard screwed fittings and copper ball floats. This was combined with ABB electronic controls.

Mark Beavon continued: “After all the hassle with the old cooling towers, it has been refreshing to work on an installation with both parties listening, learning and liaising to achieve the best possible outcome.

Melanie Wilkinson at Carter Environmental Engineers commented: “Mark Beavon, his team at Joseph Heler Cheese and contractors Empire Process Engineers and PR Bowyer Electrical have been very helpful in assisting us with their water cooling requirements, ensuring that all design requirements were understood at the outset”.

Carter Environmental Engineers’ custom-built Sandringham Cooling Tower is a forced-draught counter-flow design covering water flow rates from 6m3/hr to 600m3/hr.

Incorporating a direct drive axial fan-set located on the side of the tower at low level, the Sandringham benefits from ultra-high efficiency, interlocking drift eliminators and a multi-sloping ‘ERS’ base tank with bottom located drain.

Part of Carter Environmental Engineers proven range of ACOPL8 Fully Compliant Water Cooling Equipment, the Sandringham also features a removable pack access door and a non-aerosol forming, self draining trough and weir water distribution system.
