After a while of operation the flue walls get worn and need to be replaced.
To be able to replace a flue wall it must be demolished and removed.
Thereafter, a new prefabricated flue wall will be put in place.
For this, a Flue Wall Lifting Clamp (FWLC) is offered.
The FWLC is handled by the FTA’s flue wall hoist (on the trolley).
The FWLC is set on the new flue wall, after which the jaws are closed through hydraulic force.
Also, the height is adjusted by hydraulic force, so that the flue wall is clamped from the sides and from top to bottom.
Electric power for the hydraulic power pack is taken from the FTA through quick connections.
The actual clamping operations will be controlled by the operator from a pendant attached to the FWLC.
