Filter Bags- Alloy & Metal Plant
Ferroalloy is an alloy of iron with some elements other than carbon. Ferroalloy is used to physically introduce or ”carry” that element into molten metal, usually during steel manufacture.
Ferroalloys and silicon metal are produced in electric arc furnaces that are specially designed for smelting purposes. These furnaces are referred to as Submerged Arc Furnaces (SAF's).
The heart of a lime plant is the kiln. This kiln is a long, cylindrical, slightly inclined, refractory-lined furnace, through which the limestone and hot combustion gases pass counter-currently. Coal, oil, and natural gas may all be fired in rotary kilns.
