Layher Allround Scaffolding For Construction Of Cooling Tower
Application of Allround Scaffolding in Construction of Power Station
All thermal power stations need cooling towers, and it can be natural draft cooling towers or induction draft cooling tower. A cooling tower houses a large network of RCC columns and beams to create the support for the cooling fills. The construction of cooling tower is a challenging task due to heavy load coming on inclined columns and ring beam. The selection of support systems (scaffolding or temporary structure) to construct NDCT ring beam and inclined circular columns is very important to complete the project. Layher Allround Scaffolding systems provide unique, bolt-less connection technique, the
Spokesperson:patented Allround joint has replaced the conventional scaffold technique especially in construction of cooling tower. Allround Scaffolding can accommodate all types of high loads and is the ideal system for all kinds of support for scaffolding. Allround scaffolding has an efficient solution to deal with all challenges, regardless of whether they involve false work at great height or round inner scaffolding.

A ring beam over the inclined columns constitutes the first lift of the cooling tower shell. It needs to be built in a modular scaffolding system to construct ring beam and inclined column. This lift acts as a starter for further laying lifts of the cooling tower shell by use of very special support systems, which is best possible by using Layher Allround Scaffolding Systems. For construction of first lift, Allround Scaffolding is used to support inclined shell and NDCT (natural draft cooling tower) ring beam. Layher Allround Scaffolding gives outstanding performance against true curvature of the shell support (replacing traditional support systems) and for effective transfer of stresses.
Layher Allround Scaffolding makes an ideal propping system specially during pouring of concrete and to resist concrete pressure, friction hoists to lift the buckets full of concrete to the working platform, concrete mixers and needle vibrators, to optical instruments to check the alignment and curvature of the ring beam buckets and trolleys for concrete transportation. Evenly distributed and radically arranged supporting towers made of Allround equipment provides the crucial bracing needed by the circular scaffolding. These supporting structures are, thanks to Allround equipment, ideally matched to the circular scaffolding requiring the bracing effect, and thus absorb a substantial proportion of the horizontal load components from the Allround Scaffold structure.
Layher Allround has a suitable solution for all access need on construction site. Access stairway towers for a broad spectrum of applications and requirements are created at the site for hoisting of concrete buckets, passenger hoist and to accommodate and safe Modular Stairway, accesses that always fit and that match the system can be constructed (replacement of huge quantities of scaffolding pipes and clamps) are possible by using Allround Scaffold Systems.
Permissible load can be increased considerably by using Layher Special Reinforced base plate, Head Jack (U-Head), and diagonals suitable for Heavy load and horizontal. The structures stand out as living testimonies to the victory of man over nature; Structures conceived and built by minds in constant search of new methods, ideas, applications and solutions.
Layher Scaffolding Systems are suitable for construction of NDCT Ring Beam and inclined Racker Column.
