Case Studies

Client: Barracks Steam Museum, Aberdeen

Job: Manufacture of Flanged and Butt Welded Firebox

Scope of Work

Careful dimensions are taken from the original firebox, and plate sizes are ascertained before being ordered. Once we have the new boiler plate, we press two new firebox endplates and hot form the wrapper over a curved former.

The two endplates and wrapper are then prepped for welding by grinding a bevel onto the plate edges, the box is then tack welded together before being checked by the insurance surveyor. Once given the all clear it’s then fully fusion welded by our coded welders.

In this case the foundation ring and firedoor ring were re-usable so were seal welded to the box. A new set of roof girders were manufactured and stay bars machined and fit.
