THE CHALLENGE

· To replace the original 1950’s chimney
with new incorporating current
specifications
· The flare stack had to be designed for
easy installation as removal of the old and
replacement of the new had to take place
during a three day shutdown period
· Collision control was key – we knew the
chimney would fit together prior to
delivering to site

 

THE SOLUTION

· Use of ladder macros extensively for CAT
ladders made light work of the assembly
· Create automatic construction and
assembly drawings from the Advance
Steel 3D model
· Avoid collisions with the automatic
collision control tools

“The model makes use of the ladder tools
extensively and being able to calculate weights
of assemblies was perfect for producing lift
plans. Thanks to the collision control tools
erection went without a hitch and the old stack
was removed and replaced in a weekend.”
