This project was for a Water Cooled Combustion Tower. Consisted of an Inner Shell made from 12mm thick 316 Stainless Steel at 2.7meter diameter. This was then encased in a 10mm Mild Steel Outer Shell at 3.0meter diameter. All welds had to be air tight and new Weld Procedures had to be qualified for this project. From receipt of order to the completed vessel leaving our workshop just 28 days had passed (this included the time it took for us to widen the door of the workshop to enable us to undertake this project). Completed dimensions of Vessel 9 meter in height 3 meter in diameter and 15 ton in weight.
Geodesic dome structure made from Glulam timber members connected into steel nodes, each steel node was a bespoke member (over 200 were required). Due to the glulam connections, tolerance was a key issue (+0/-1mm). Because the nodes are to be seen once the building is complete and were galvanized it was imperative that no site alterations to the nodes should take place, our client was extremely pleased that we achieved this.
One of the first jobs we undertook in our new premises. For this project we made various conveyor support steelwork (conveyor length was approx. 100 meters) and one large bunker. The top half of the bunker was made in 4 quarters approx. 4.5 Ton Each and the bottom section in one approx. 5.5 ton. All these were lined in Hardox. We then packed the components in containers for overseas shipping. After completion of this project we was then given a repeat order.
Staircase we made for Marple Station, was fabricated in one section approximately 3 meters wide and 16 meters in length, complete with handrail. Plus supporting Steelwork for lift shaft and supporting 700 diameter CHS. 2 of these were required. Stringers made from 250*150*8 RHS and every butt weld required 100% UT.
