Installation and insulation of combustion plants. Integral Combustion Solutions, engineering company on design, manufacturing, commissioning and maintenance activities, is carrying out the installation and insulation of pipes and equipment in a combustion installation for the chemical sector.
In the current phase, the company carries out the work corresponding to the assembly of the boilers and the assembly of the plant’s degasser, as well as the boiler feed pump skid, the interconnection piping for water and steam of the plant boiler. , the installation and assembly of the electrical panel and the insulation of pipes and other equipment.
Installation and insulation of Combustion Plants
Combustion plants are technical devices, such as boilers, engines or turbines, in which fuels are oxidized in order to use the heat produced or the steam generated. To generate heat, combustion plants can burn solid, liquid or gaseous fuels.
The use of combustion installations is required for heating installations, electric power generation, steam or hot water generation (in process plants), materials manufacturing, as in the cement, glass or ceramic industry or waste incineration and recovery of materials.
Combustion occurs in the boiler. In the case of gaseous fuels, these are mixed with the combustion air in the burner, while liquid fuels are fed to the boiler as mist via the burner.
In addition to the boiler and burner, other sections of the installation are responsible for supplying and distributing the fuel and combustion air, transmitting heat and removing, or reusing, the combustion gases and combustion residues (ash).
Pipe insulation works provide thermal, acoustic and corrosion insulation to combustion facilities, and they are a key tool for personnel safety and energy efficiency in industrial facilities.
With regard to energy efficiency, pipes thermal insulation avoids energy losses produced in non-insulated pipes, thus also reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions, helping to increase the overall efficiency of the installation.
