Meeraner Dampfkesselbau GmbH Power Plant Pressure Parts and Welding Training
Meeraner Dampfkesselbau GmbH specialises in the manufacturing of pressure parts for highly efficient coal and lignite-fired plants, as well as industrial boilers, waste incinerators, and biomass-fired plants.
Attemperators, headers and distributors for power plants
Meeraner Dampfkesselbau manufactures utility and steam generator components for plants up to and more than 1,100MWe with 300bar+ pressures, 600°C live-steam temperatures, and reheating of up to 620°C for most available fuels (coal, lignite, gas, and biomass).
The company produces pressure elements that provide a manufacturing area of 20,000m² with an annual capacity of 250,000 hours.
Meeraner Dampfkesselbau supplies a broad spectrum of parts, including membrane walls, headers, separators, attemperators, coils, and burners. The company provides burner holes, black-white connectors, pressure vessels, and piping and fittings.
Meeraner’s services also involve tube bends, steel, and sheet metal construction.
Since 2009, the company has been extending its pressure parts product range. It now processes and supplies industrial steam generators.
Burners and cladding for waste incinerators and biomass facilities
Meeraner’s clients include national and international energy suppliers, as well as power stations and constructors.
More specifically, the company works with customers from the steel production and petrochemical industry, as well as operators of waste heat plants, incinerators, and biomass combustion facilities.
High-quality, technical advice, adherence to delivery dates and general reliability are Meeraner Dampfkesselbau’s top business objectives. From design through to material procurement and manufacturing, Meeraner Dampfkesselbau carries out each step of the project process without interfaces and from a single source.
Practical welding training for power applications
Meeraner Dampfkesselbau’s employees have many years of professional experience and are continuously provided with further advanced qualifications in order to meet all current and future requirements.
The company has its own welding training facility, which is certified by the German Welding Society (DVS). The sessions are both theoretical and practical, and provide workers with knowledge of several steel types, including general construction, high-temperature, austenitic, as well as martensitic chromium.
The company also specialises in aluminium and nickel-based alloys, in addition to copper training.
Other organisations and assembling companies use the expertise of Meeraner Dampfkesselbau’s welding training centre to teach and qualify their own welders.
