Repair and modernization of chimneys
After this period the technical condition of of chimneys requires them to complete reconstruction or replacement. Until the recent rise in the cost of a complete renovation of prefabricated concrete chimney was more than 1,4-2 mln. UAH., but the economic damage from the boiler stop, depending on the availability of backup heat source , categories of consumers, seasons, can reach numbers comparable to several annual budgets area (locality).
Number problematic heat generating objects currently high due to the following reasons:
- Simultaneous production of resource by many boiler-houses commissioned in the 70-80's.
- Reducing the actual heat load by industrial customers.
- The tendency of decentralization of heat supply systems, which resulting in increased total heat-generating objects.
Chimneys are working under difficult conditions: at differences temperature, pressure, humidity, aggressive flue gas, wind loads and loads of their own weight. As a result of mechanical (power and temperature), chemical and combined impact, arising damage of chimneys constructions. Repair and removal chimneys are a tedious, extremely dangerous work that requires highly professional approach. For its implementation requires a full technical examination of the object.
Industrial climbers in the shortest time can provide photo and video report of:
- Internal and external condition of the chimney,
- The thickness of the metal,
- Availability and location of the vertical cracks outputs fittings, bricks fell, destroyed or lining penetrating rust.
And provide a detailed report about the internal state of brick and its density, thickness of the metal, the results of precise measurement of defectoscope, describing all the defects and their locations. A detailed report will help you to determine the expected period of further operation of the chimney, and its degree of wear.
The experience gained by us over the years, helping to pick up the best practices and ways to resolve any construction problems.
