SSM Product line 1
SSM is a leading manufacturer of chimneys for district heating plants, power plants and industrial stacks.
This product line consists of free-standing chimneys.
This standard version is a sectional flanged steel stack – shell in Corten or S235 painted – with a diameter up to 3 m. Larger diameters can be customized.
For this product line, there is a limit of approx. 300,000 m3/H at 18 m/sec with 1 inner liner.
For this product line, we will typically use EN Eurocodes to define all the basics of the structural design, load on the structure and structural calculations.
We use the safety assessment procedure described in EN 1990 Eurocode 0 – Basis of structural design.
Recommended partial safety factors and load combinations will be applied.
Unless the customer references otherwise, e.g. a national annex to Eurocodes - in this case, the customer must specify the procedure.
If nothing else is specificed, we will always use EXC 2.
