In this video, you will learn how to install, step by step, the MaxBlock Serpentine Modules with the Stud Tite Attachment System along with the tools and materials you will need.
Preparation prior to installation is also covered and subsequent care to obtain optimal results.
Use personal protective equipment required for this work including face shield, safety glasses, mask, gloves and rough clothing.
Check the quantity of required modules to complete the job. These modules should be installed with a work surface free of rust, paint and/or any other materials that may prevent proper installation of the modules.
Prior to installation, prepare all tools and equipment needed.
Before the start of module installation it is required to prepare a folded batten strip, it must bend to the same thickness of the modules installed.
1.- Using a knife cut the fiber blanket (folded Batten strip) to the same dimension of the thickness module.
2.- With the help of chalk or markers for steel and a tape measure, mark on the wall the location of the studs used to attach the modules. This activity takes place on the bottom of the wall.
3.- Following the same procedure of the previous operation, now locate marks at the top of the wall, repeat the procedure of the marks on the right and left extremes of the wall. With the help of a tracer the points of the opposite ends are joined and the thread is pulled to leave a mark on the wall. This operation is done with the horizontal and vertical marks.
4.- Starting at the bottom of the wall a stud is welded in the first mark previously made, the welding procedure for each stud will be placing welded dots in the ends of each base plate.
5.- Repeat the previous operation to weld the next stud on the next mark and repeat placing a stud in each next mark until you end the first row.
6.- Place the first module on the first stud with visual help of the PVC tube inside the module, locate the drilling of the internal ironwork coinciding with the stud.
7.- With the help of a ratchet and it’s extension, place the nut through the PVC tube and start screwing until it is securely tightened.
8.- Repeat the previous operation with the next module and so on until you finish the first row. It is important to have enough nuts to complete the job; you may need help to press the module together to secure them to the correct position.
9.- After the first row you must place the folded batten strip, this should be as long as the modules installed, press lightly.
10.- On the next row a stud is welded in the first mark previously made, the welding procedure for each stud we’ll be placing welded dots in the ends of each base plate.
11.- Repeat the previous operation to weld the next stud on the next mark and repeat placing a stud in each next mark until you end the first row.
12.- Before starting the installation of the second row of modules, use a slide sheet, which will help the installation of following modules. Install the first module in the row following the procedure already described and so on to finish the row. Please view our installation video to observe how the slide sheet is used to move modules.
13.- With the help of a ratchet and it’s extension, place the nut through the PVC tube and start screwing until it is securely tightened.
14.- Continue welding studs and installing modules to finish the entire surface.
15.- With help from another person, close the installation by placing a steel plate to keep modules firmly placed in their location.
16.- With the help of pincers, remove the PVC tube for each module. Manually press the fiber where previously was the PVC tube, this is for closing the opening of the module.
17.- With the help of scissors the plastic strappings are cut from each of the modules. This should be done only when the entire furnace section is completed.
18.- Remove the plastic strap from the modules.
19.- Once finished covering the whole surface with modules, use a fumigating pump to spray water to minimize airborne dust. Use constant water flow.
20.- Starting from the top, spray the surface of the modules in a uniform way.
21.- Using a mesh grille compress smooth and uniformly across the surface of the modules.
