Andrews Ventilation safeguards structure of waste-to-energy plant

When excessive temperature differences exist between a concrete structure and its surroundings, thermal cracking is likely to occur. The temperature variance will cause cooler areas to contract more than those exposed to warmer air and eventually leading to the formation of gaps. This scenario is particularly likely in power stations and refineries, where operational conditions regularly see temperatures exceed 400°C.

A newly-constructed plasma gasification energy plant in the Tees Valley recently approached us seeking a ventilation hire package to ensure the structural composition was protected. Non-recyclable products are incinerated on site as part of a process that converts waste into renewable energy.
