Kiln Outlet Exhaust Modifications

RB Engineering had a request to work on a kiln outlet exhaust modification.  It was a one-off job and one that they had not done before.  A designer from RB Engineering went onsite to measure up for the stainless steel manufacture of the kiln outlet exhaust.

The requested work required a design engineer to design a new kiln exhaust trunking so that it could take the used heat and duct it through the roof of the building.  Once the design had been approved, it was passed to an acoustic designer who ensured that when the hot air would leave the building with the noise reduced to no more than 20db.  This was due to the fact that the client’s building was housed in a residential area and previously there had been complaints from residents regarding the noise from the kiln outlet exhaust.

The component was drawn into our water jet cutting software and then reverse engineered to give a flat pattern.  A profile was made from the flat plate, it was then folded and welded into shape.  The kiln outlet would be manufactured from stainless steel.

RB Engineering were requested to fit the Kiln outlet exhaust onsite and so a crane was organised.  Risk assessments for working at height were thoroughly carried out and an assessment and method report was required by the client.

The fitting went according to plan and there were no issues.  While the engineers were on the roof the client requested that the flashings which seal the outlet chimney to the building were done.

The work was carried out on a weekend when the factory was shut down, this was at the client’s request.

From the onset of the work on the kiln outlet exhaust a combination of skills provided by RB Engineering helped to solve the client’s problem of noise pollution in a residential area.
