Severfield

Project Description

The Challenge

• Severfield’s new painting facility for treatment of steel with intumescent paint

• Stringent air quality requirement, due to particularly high levels of VOCs in the paint, which also affect drying times

• Limited available space at high level due to mobile cranes

• Strict budget and lifecycle costs

• Openly tendered against competing diffusion / extraction solutions

The Outcome

• A competitive solution, as compared with other offers, in an open tender competition

• The spraying area is comfortable for the occupants, with excellent air quality and VOCs managed to safe levels

• Pulsers mounted at high level within steel roof trusses

• Drying time for the intumescent paint has been reduced by half, meaning throughput has doubled

• No draughts or thermal stratification
