1. Introduction
See dimension drawing, load drawing and other plant specifications for proper erection in relation to
other plant components and building elements.

It is recommended that the sequence of erection should be as follows:

• Erection of supporting unit and slide bearings on concrete support or,


• Erection of supporting unit on pendular support or,
• Erection of supporting unit on solid steel support.

• Erection of transition unit.

• Erection of bottom hopper and outlet.

• Erection of cylindrical unit above supporting unit.

• Erection of cone.

• Erection of inlet with swirl.

• Erection of dust transport.

• Erection of access facilities.

• Erection of water injection system.

• Erection of insulation and cladding.

• Erection of inlet bend.

However, other sequences of erection may be followed.

Different design:

- Under the supporting unit, a cylindrical unit or a transition unit should be mounted (see assembly
drawing for correct erection).

- For erection of the supporting unit only one erection procedure should be used (see dimension
drawing and load drawing for correct erection).

Erection principle:

- To secure correct mutual position of the foundation plates, the securing bolts, the slide bearings
and the supporting unit, these parts are to be pre-assembled.
- However, the foundation plates cannot be welded to the steel support in preassembled condition
due to lack of space.
- The foundation plates, which are held in correct position by the supporting unit, are therefore
bonded together with the steel support, using adhesive *).
- When the adhesive has hardened, the foundation plates and the supporting unit are separated.
- When the supporting unit is removed the foundation plates are welded to the steel support.

*) Use below mentioned Araldite adhesive or equivalent:


Type designation: AV 144-2/HV 997, adhesive type: 2013.

Pre-assembly

1) The slide bearings and the foundation plates may have different design. See assembly
drawings and load drawing for correct erection.

2) Mount upper part of the slide bearings on the underside of the supporting unit.
Mount lower part of the slide bearings on the top of the foundation plates.

3) Tack-weld foundation plates with securing bolts, securing plates and slide bearings to the
supporting unit. Check that the securing bolts and the slide bearings are in correct position.

Erection

1) The slide bearings and the foundation plates may have different design. See assembly
drawings and load drawing for correct erection.

2) Measure and mark the position of the foundation plates on top of the steel support.
The shims with different thickness are used to achieve the correct vertical position of the
individual supporting points (use shims only if necessary).
Check that the individual supporting points are in correct position.

3) Weld the shims to the steel support where indicated.


No welding on the top surface of the shims.

4) Apply adhesive to the shims. If the shims are not used, the adhesive is applied to the steel
support.

5) The supporting unit is temporally mounted on the steel support. The shims must be covered
by the foundation plate.
If the shims are not used, the foundation plate must cover the adhesive at the steel support.

6) Let adhesive harden.

7) Remove tack-weld between the supporting unit, the securing plates and the securing bolts.
Remove the securing plates.
Check if the securing bolts are correctly mounted in the bolt holes.

8) Mark the position of the supporting unit in relation to the foundation plates.
Check that the upper part of the slide bearings are correctly mounted on the underside of the
supporting unit.
