Client: John Glynn, Republic of Ireland
Job: Manufacture of Riveted Firebox
Scope of Work
On a cold winter’s morning in the dark Mr Glynn dropped off the remains of his original firebox. We began by manufacturing the main components, hot forming the endplates and wrapper.
We then let then endplates into the wrapper, mark off and drill for the lap rivets. The endplates are then riveted to the wrapper with pneumatic riveting guns, and the rivet heads and lap seams caulked to seal.
The original foundation ring was re-used and fit, along with a washout plug boss. The firebox was drilled for all smoketubes.
