When it comes to transporting exhaust stacks for furnace systems in South Florida or anywhere else, trust Pedowitz. Transporting and assembling exhaust stacks for a furnace system typically involves several steps.
Measuring and planning is key because in some cases (as with this job which you can see in the photos), narrow doorways and low ceiling heights have to be dealt with right away. Moving systems like these almost always requires disassembly and/or special handling. You can see, we had to make a (temporary) hole in the roof.
First we have to protect the disassembled sections by wrapping them in suitable packaging materials such as bubble wrap, foam, or blankets. This will help prevent damage during transportation. Then we’ll take extreme care when loading and securing them. In this particular case, these exhaust stacks are for a crematorium so, punctures are not an option. After we’ve unloaded the sections from our trucks, we’ll use the appropriate lifting equipment, such as cranes or forklifts.
Then riggers at Pedowitz Machinery Movers will get to work. This is where we shine. This isn’t your typical move and set in place job. We have to begin by connecting the sections together in the correct order, using appropriate joining methods such as flanges, gaskets, or welding. Ensure the connections are secure and properly sealed to prevent any leaks.
Once assembled, we’ll ensure that the exhaust stacks are adequately supported and stable. Use support structures such as brackets, guy wires, or concrete foundations, depending on the specific requirements of your furnace system.
It’s important to note that the specific steps and requirements for transporting and assembling exhaust stacks may vary depending on the size, material, and design of the stacks, as well as any applicable local regulations or industry standards. Therefore, it’s advisable to consult the manufacturer’s instructions or seek professional guidance for your specific furnace system.
