During the Spring of 2013 PCR were invited to carry out a survey to this 130-metre high concrete chimney incorporating 2 internal flue liners constructed from Carbon Steel and the upper 15 metres in Stainless Steel Grade 304.
Due to the Coastal environment this chimney was suffering from heavy corrosion.
From a result of this survey PCR quickly drew up a specification to the Client, which consisted of full replacement of the external flue stub measuring 4m in height x 4m diameter and the removal of the upper 4m of steel liner and over-plating 11m below this area. PCR were subsequently awarded this contract and quickly put into place the ordering of specific materials to fulfil this project.
The contract was started within 5 weeks from the end of the original inspection survey and was completed 4 weeks upon entering site
