Bracket Design, Fabrication and Weld Cleaning for Saur Glasgow WTW

Saur UK are the operator of Scottish Water’s Dalmuir Water Treatment Works in Glasgow for whom Burnhouse Engineering designed and fabricated a batch of Double Movement Pipe Expansion Brackets.

These types of brackets are commonly used in manufacturing and processing applications as they allow for the thermal expansion of pipework which processes hot fluids.

The brackets were designed and using Caesar II software. The designs were then fabricated at Burnhouse’s site in Ayrshire from 304 Grade Stainless Steel materials.

Welding can produce a blackening of the material, so weld cleaning is a common practice within Burnhouse and we work to a Standard Operating Procedure to ensure the parts look as good as possible before being installed into the customer’s site. This is particularly important if the workpiece is polished.

The welded areas of each bracket were cleaned onsite using an Electro Weld Cleaning brush. This is a fast, safe and effective method which produces an industry leading surface finish.

At Burnhouse Engineering we have fully trained, coded welders to BSEN ISO 9606-1 and weld procedures to BSEN 15614.
