Transition Duct Insulation Casing Replacement 

The original engine Transition Duct Insulation Casing may contain an Asbestos and refractory ceramic fibre lining between the inner and outer skin . Over the years the inner skin has a tendency to ware away and holes begin to appear. When the insulation casing is removed the asbestos can escape into the atmosphere. If the dust is inhaled it can lead to a life threatening condition of the lungs called "Asbestosis".

The Government introduced the "CONTROL OF ASBESTOS REGULATIONS 2006" (CAR 2006). One of the key aspects of the legislation is to reduce any future exposure. When removal of the casings is undertaken it should be done in a controlled manner and disposed of by a responsible contractor. Visit www.hse.gov.uk/asbestos/regulations.htm for more information.

All new Insulation Casings no longer carry the toxic material asbestos and have been replaced with non toxic materials that carry out the same task to a higher standard.

We are able to assist with the replacement of the 24 inch Insulation Casings. The 11.2 inch Insulation Casing is being investigated at this time to see whether it also requires the stripping and replacement of the asbestos lining to a legal condition and status.

 

Prior to undertaking removal of the covers it is required and necessary to have us carry out a survey that will determine whether asbestos and refractory ceramic fibre is present. When removal of the casing is undertaken it is done in a controlled manner and disposed of by a responsible contractor. All of our new casings now hold non- toxic materials that carry out the same task to a higher and safer standard.
