While managing an industrial unit or a factory, you must regularly inspect and carry on maintenance of chimneys. A chimney is the passage which passes smoke and heat to the outside of your factory, thus keeping your factory congestion-free and safe from harmful pollutants.
Established in 2001, our company Energy Plus India is engaged in industrial utility operation in India by managing boilers, chillers, air compressors, WTP, ETP, DG etc. Our team of highly experienced and skilled professionals successfully look after every detail of your chimney, and take various measures to maintain it periodically with affordable cost.
Reasons To Inspect And Maintain Chimneys
You need to keep the chimneys free from residual particles and chemical dust. These things come from smokes which pass through the chimneys. If these things block the chimneys, then your factory unit will become congested with smoke and pollutants. This is harmful for the health of workers, and at the same time, the machines can experience faults which can hamper production.
If you don’t maintain your chimneys regularly, then various health committees and pollution control boards may penalise you. So, always try to keep certain delicate parts of chimney clean. These parts are the interior, the top, areas around breeching duct inlets, inspection ports, upper reaches of ladders, platforms and fall-arrest systems.
Effects of stresses and wears and tears are very common problems experienced by the chimneys due to high variations of temperatures, chemical effects, the constant flow of smokes, seismic activities etc. Concrete chimneys may experience hairline cracks and shrinkage cracks, and these may lead to leakage and deterioration.
The chimney also makes passage of steam. And due to that, a chimney may experience rust which can make it thinner. Again, harmful by-products of a factory can lead to thinning and de-lamination of fiberglass reinforced plastic liners or shells, and this may cause leaks and possible fires.
