Tuned mass damper applications for safe chimney construction
Fundamental to Steelcon’s success has been the design of the STEELCON Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) system.
The damper delivers a safe and cost-effective chimney that eliminates dangerous oscillations. It also enables the design of self-supporting, free-standing chimneys with aspect ratios of up to 40:1.
Steelcon steel chimneys use the same technology that allows engineers to build the world’s tallest skyscrapers. An added benefit is that the chimney foundation loads are reduced by more than 60% when compared to other less effective devices such as helical strakes or wind spoilers.
We have retrofitted TMD’s to existing constructions on many occasions in order to solve chimney oscillations. We also monitor chimney movements by attaching accelerometers, providing the necessary information to accurately determine the natural frequency of the chimney and install the correctly designed TMD.
High-quality chimney construction
Steelcon manufactures according to ISO 9001, Certificate Class E DIN 18800-7, and DIN 4133. The company has two well-situated factories and licensed fabrication partners in different parts of the world.
We use up-to-date test and control systems for raw materials, sub-supplier production, own production, and erection. We provide important comprehensive documentation of the work we carry out.
Power facility stack assessments
Steel chimneys are dynamic structures often located in challenging industrial environments, therefore, it is important for steel chimneys and stacks to be regularly and periodically inspected to ensure a safe, continued service.
Steelcon has specialist teams that can inspect chimneys and provide comprehensive reports, which include ultrasonic measurements with maintenance recommendations to ensure longevity from your capital investment.
