The background of the Polykamin OMYX chimney

After eight years of operation the steel chimney of the hazardous waste incineration plant had corroded, even though it had a 5 mm thick internal rubber lining. The management of the plant chose the POLYKAMIN solution.

After three years of continuous operation the internal surface of the Polykamin tube is faultless. The construction process of the Polykamin chimney at Dorog can be seen in the FILMS menu.

  • Internal diameter: 1250 mm
  • Wall thickness: 25 mm
  • Length of vertical chimney tube section: 40.7 m
  • Mass of vertical tube section: 9.3 tons
  • Mass of lower curved section: 0.7 tons
  • Diameter of drop catcher: 2500 mm
  • Mass of drop catcher: 1.7 tons
  • Amount of condensation water flowing back: 4.000 l/hour
  • Guarantee against corrosion defects: 30 years
