F.D. COPELAND & SONS LTD.

 

Background

F.D. Copeland & Sons was founded by Frederick Dennis in 1937, and specialises in the distillation and blending of a variety of essential oils including citrus and mint.
Many of their oils end up in a variety of household products including cold remedies, detergents and air fresheners. 

Task

Working with our client, GC Partnership of Ashford, Kent (http://www.gcpartnership.co.uk/index.html

As part of their relocation from Central London to Woolwich, our objective was to provide heating, ventilation and filtration to the Essential Oil Mixing Facility. Issues were that they didn't have a readily available heating source i.e. a boiler hot water supply. The unit was subsequently configured with an indirect gas fired burner.

Other tasks were to reduce concentrations of essential oils such as Lavender and Eucalyptus, by using a three stage filtration system including carbon absorption. 

Our other principle objective was to be as energy efficient as possible using a plate heat exchanger and EFF1 motors.
