030040075 THE STACK Stack is a type of chimney which is constructed for power plants. These types of stacks also called as flue gas stack. It is a vertical, hollow structure. Steel is used while it is constructed. The aim of building a stack is taking the products of combustion chamber or boiler or furnace and discharging them to atmosphere. These products are usually composed of carbon dioxide, water vapour, nitrogen and oxygen which remain from the combustion air. In addition to them there are some pollutants such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and sulphur oxides. Flue gas stacks are very tall buildings. There are two reasons for that; first reason is draft problem, and the second reason is concentration of pollutants which is defined in governmental environmental policy and environmental regulation.
