Zwick valves are often used in the Oil & Gas industry and BM Engineering are proud suppliers. Recently, we provided a large distillery in Scotland with Zwick double block and bleed units. Here, we offer more information about the recent project.
BM Engineering are distillery valve suppliers
Distilling some of the world’s most well-known spirits, one of Scotland’s largest distilleries recently turned to BM Engineering to supply Zwick block and bleed units that would further their on-site sustainability requirements. The distillery, which produces some of the world’s most recognisable alcohol brands available, is aiming to drive greater sustainability and, with the recent commission of a bio-energy facility, is well on course.
The distillery plans to combine biomass combustion with anaerobic digestion and water recovery, aiming to generate 30MW of energy and meet 95% of the site’s energy needs. Their use of double block and bleed valves from BM Engineering will save space, weight and maintenance costs.
Use of double block and bleed valves
While double block and bleed valves are often used in the Oil and Gas industry, BM Engineering saw a prime opportunity for saving space in the distillery. While saving space is a primary use of the valves, they also offer a dual isolation solution that reduces the cost of multi-valve systems. Zwick block and bleed units combine all block and bleed components into a single unit, minimising the risk of leak paths to the atmosphere while providing significant weight savings.
