Givaudan, Geneva, Switzerland install Naylor chemical drainage

Givaudan is a global leader in the manufacture of flavourings and fragrances used throughout the food and drink, perfume and laundry industries. The manufacturing process of some fragrance products at the Geneva manufacturing plant creates high temperature effluents in excess of 95 degrees Celsius that can also include some chemicals. This has created problems for Givaudan’s drainage system and led to continuingly changing pipes that had cracked through thermal shock until they came across Naylor’s Thermachem chemical drainage material.

Givaudan are replacing their entire process drainage to Naylor Thermachem pipes and have said ‘they are too good, because we won’t need to buy from you again’. Givaudan maintain and install all on-site pipework including drainage themselves so design, purchase, install, use and maintain the full Thermachem system. The Naylor Thermachem pipes are installed under 8 process halls and are all linked in to 1 system, with 980 metres of pipes and 1,500 joints.
