Installation at Xiashun

 

INSTALLATION OF A 110 T ROUND MELTING FURNACE AND A 110 T HOLDING FURNACE

Calderys Deutschland successfully completed the installation of a 110t round melting furnace and a 110t holding furnace for Gautschi Engineering GmbH at the customer Xiashun in Xiamen/China in July/August 2012. In addition, an exhaust gas channel, measuring approx. 12m, a 23m stack and 4 mobile burners for the melting furnace were installed.

The melting furnace as well as the holding furnace was installed mainly with bricks. The insulation consists of bricks, concrete and fiber material. The burner blocks as well as complicated geometrical surfaces were installed with castable concrete. The removable roof is made from bricks. The upper ring, which carries the lid, was installed from precast pieces, produced at the Neuwied plant, just as the the precast pieces for the round shapes at the door posts (door opening).

The exhaust channel was mounted on site in several steps with cast concrete. The 4 movable burners were installed on site with precast pieces, produced in Neuwied, and cast concrete.

This line 2, installed in 2012, was heated up starting October 2012, by a subcontractor of Calderys Deutschland. Line 1, identical except for the 4 movable burners, had been installed in 2009 in the same way.
