FRP Stacks & Ducts

Plasticon Composites can design, supply, assemble and install ducts, chimney liners and stacks at plants. We are experienced in providing ducts to all local and international markets, such as the power market for the FGD and CCS processes. Ducts can be manufactured on-site or in one of our workshops. We assemble ducts from the absorber to the chimney or cooling water tower. Plasticon Composites supplies ducts of different diameters, while our on-site winding machine can deliver ducts of 12 metres in diameter.

Plasticon Composites ducts are often used to transport gases from one process to the other. The chimney liners also transport gases to a higher level, where it can be released into the environment without harming or having a major impact on the local environment.

Plasticon Composites designs and constructs the ducts, chimney liners and stacks by using the Finite Element Method (FEM analysis) to meet the highest requirements and ensure products of perfect quality and safety.

Plasticon Composites has designed products for application at a temperature of 150˚C!

Advantages of using GRP ducts:

  • High mechanical strength
  • Low weight
  • Exceptional chemical resistance
  • Excellent resistance to ageing and to atmospheric environments
  • Dimensional stability
  • Very high thermal insulation
  • Excellent resilience as regards temperature
  • Low thermal expansion coefficient

Ducts can be executed with:

  • 90° Elbow with internal vanes
  • Segmented elbow
  • Transition pieces
  • Ladders and condensate drainage
  • Protection against electrostatic discharge
  • Manholes
