Edina contracted John J Doyle Ltd to complete a chimney installation at the Canterbury Christ Church University in England for the generator.
Canterbury Christ Church University is a public university located in Canterbury, Kent, England. Founded as a Church of England college for teacher training in 1962, it was granted university status in 2005. The university now has 15,000 students across its two locations.
Dinak GE50+ 450Ø
John J Doyle Ltd was contacted by Edina to attend site to propose flue installation designs to serve the new generator. Once on site, John J Doyle Ltd determined the project had limited space for a flue run.
Generator flue systems require special considerations including high flue gas temperatures (450°-600°C), low levels of corrosion, high over-pressured conditions (5,000 Pa) and have no risk of soot fire. Therefore the chimney systems for power generators require very good tightness, steel grade over AISI 304/316L, double-wall insulated flue, flange connection and to avoid thermal expansion.
AutoCAD drawings and calculations were carried out in-house to determine the correct diameter to ensure compliance with European standards and the Clean Air Act. Once the calculations were completed, Dinak GE50+ flue was selected as it is specially designed for the evacuation of combustion products produced by power generators.
The GE50+ flue was routed externally and rose 13m high.
All chimney and flue products were supplied and installed CE Marked and compliant with European and regional standards.
