Overview

3 identical vertical distillation columns in stainless steel 316 Ti

At Verschoore, we occasionally like a 'big' challenge!

One of our main clients entrusted us the contract for the construction
of 3 identical vertical distillation columns in stainless steel 316 Ti.

A comprehensive study and design on stability, pressure resistance
and wind forces was carried out.

We developed a detailed 3D model, that was used by the client in his global project design.
Each column has a diameter of 1000mm and a total height of 21 metres.

Each weld has been precisely inspected by the inspection service of our client.
A notified body inspected and certified the 3 columns by the latest pressure
regulations 2014/68/EU.

In our workshop, the columns were provided with an 150mm insulation
jacket covered with aluminium cladding.

With the help of 2 massive telescopic cranes, they were lifted in the steel structure.
We wish our client all the best with his new installation.
