16 16Page TÜV SÜD AG TÜV SÜD Industry Service, Inc. Block Nozzle Installation

17 17Page TÜV SÜD AG TÜV SÜD Industry Service, Inc. Installation Tasks Remove all existing grid refractory Remove membrane between the grid tubes where the block nozzles will be located. Remove or cut off remaining nozzle stubs. The cut off point for the stubs will be well below the surface of the replacement refractory. Plug tubes of cut off nozzle stubs, by installing plugs or bolts in tubes and welding, alternatively a plate can be welded to the cut nozzles. Apply sealing refractory to the base of the block nozzle. Note groves on the block for this. Set block nozzle in position on tray plenum, inserting the fixing rod down through the hole in tray plenum base. A locating bar is positioned on the tray as an assembly guide. Set the nozzle against the bar, and install the fixing washer against the spacer tube. Tack weld is required on the fixing washer to rod. Trays and nozzles can be assembled outside of the unit, in parallel with the removal of the existing refractory, thus reducing the installation schedule. Weld new tray/nozzle assemblies to the crown of the grid tubes with a full seal weld. Apply ceramic fiber paper or grease around the sides of the nozzle that are in contact with the replacement refractory to facilitate easy removal at a later date, if required. Pour refractory to the height indicated by the specific design drawings.
