Respect to Nature

In the field of environmental protection inside the electric steel meltshop, a very important application is the collection and treatment of the primary fumes produced by the EAF process and escaping from the IV hole on furnace roof. The emission flowrate, temperature, heat load and composition are continuously and suddenly changing during the power-on phases. The main pollutant generated by the EAF process are the fine dust of iron oxide and other heavy metals, volatile compounds, but also the quantity of CO and VOC are high.

What to consider during decision?

  • To achieve high reliability and favorable operating costs requires the right design.
  • The more cleanly the process parameters are adapted to one another and the more precisely the design is tailored to the upstream aggregate, the more smoothly the operation will run.
  • Long-lasting, low-maintenance components virtually eliminate unplanned downtimes.

A dedusting system requires sensible investments. That is why it is so important for the system to be able to accommodate future expansions of production and potentially stricter environmental regulations- without requiring significant modification and conversion costs.
