Steel Chimney Systems

With the development of the industry, the construction of steel chimneys started to gain momentum. Since steel chimneys have more advantages over concrete chimneys, they have become preferred especially in applications where chimney heights are increased. Steel chimney systems can be made in various constructions, in the same external geometric shapes and sizes, according to their intended use. In this study, the latest technological developments are evaluated by considering the types, design, project preparation, manufacturing and application areas of the steel chimneys that have become widespread.

In the rapidly developing chimney sector, companies are fighting fiercely to produce efficient, economical and environmentally friendly systems. In this process, chimneys are needed to discharge the smoke gases formed as a result of combustion into the atmosphere in order to generate energy in burning devices. Especially in industrial boiler applications, besides the efficient operation of the system, fire and structural stability and similar aspects of the chimney;

1- Determination of its cross section,

2- Determining the height,

3- The choice of material,

4- Construction

Steel Chimney Design Systems

Steel chimney; It is a construction material that safely throws the smoke gases that occur as a result of combustion into the atmosphere or provides the fresh air required for the combustion of industrial waste gases.

Chimneys of industrial boilers and facilities can be made of steel, concrete and brick. In recent years, brick chimney applications have disappeared except for special processes. Section and height calculations of steel chimneys are made according to TS EN 13384-1 and TS EN 13384-2, manufacturing and assembly according to TS EN 13084-7 and Eurocode 3 standards. In addition, in our country, the “Industrial Air Pollution Control Regulation” must be taken into consideration regarding industrial chimneys.
