Premium Drinks Need Premium Plant Services

[Case Study]



Our client is a manufacturer of quality cider and cider vinegars. Due to growth in product sales, they built a new production facility including a whole new ‘kegging line’.

However, their location meant that the mains water was containing a high concentration of calcium and magnesium. This scale resulted in costly repairs and maintenance, as well as inefficient heat transfer. This was causing an increase in the cost of operations.




The plant and equipment was designed for the softening and re-distribution of the site's mains water. The solution consisted of a duplex, base exchange (BX) water softener. This contains a resin which exchanges calcium and magnesium ions for sodium. As sodium is soluble in water at far higher concentrations than calcium and magnesium, hard scale deposits are not formed. In addition to the softener, Clearwater supplied and installed a large water storage tank, duty/assist distribution pump-set, associated pipework and connections. Over the course of the project, Clearwater faced some specific challenges, including:

  • Installation location changing due to other contractors
  • MOC (Materials of Construction) specification changed
  • Additional draw-off points to allow services connection



The finished system met all of Aspall's technical and business requirements. The project was completed ahead of schedule and on budget due to efficient project management by the Clearwater team.
