Convert Int value of seconds into a Time Stamp

Hi ,

I have an Int field containing seconds that I need to convert into a Time Stamp.
I have managed to select
Select CONVERT(char(8), DATEADD(second, ActualDuration, ''), 108)
From
Table

But it does not give me a 24 hour clock in the sense that if I have a value of 173690
it is displaying as 00:14:50  
This is incorrect.
I need it to add on 24 hours per day, so if the int values of seconds goes into days I need the time stamp to display 48:00:00 for example when it's been 2 days.

Help would be appreciated....

Take a look at this user defined function you can create to emulate TimeSerial on MS SQL Server.  To make it function they way you want, just remove the % 24 part of this line:
SET @hours = floor(@total/3600) % 24

And you will also need to remove the code to adjust from millitary time.  Here is a way to do it directly in SQL without UDF.

SELECT Cast((ActualDuration/3600) As nvarchar(2)) + ':' + RIGHT('0'+Cast(((ActualDuration % 3600)/60) As nvarchar(2)), 2)    SET @result = @result + ':' + RIGHT('0'+Cast(((ActualDuration % 3600) % 60) As nvarchar(2)),2)

Arg!  Sorry, got some residual text in the code snippet -- use this one.  Good thing I wrote the original, so I can copy all I want. ;)
SELECT Cast((ActualDuration/3600) As nvarchar(2)) + ':' + RIGHT('0'+Cast(((ActualDuration % 3600)/60) As nvarchar(2)), 2) + ':' + RIGHT('0'+Cast(((ActualDuration % 3600) % 60) As nvarchar(2)),2)
