Steel Mills

EAF (electric arc furnace) at Mini Steel Plants (MSP) and Blast Furnace (BF) at integrated steel plants (ISP) are the two primary technologies of steel production. 

There are many dust collection processes at steel plants. Sinter plants are major sources of PM10 / PM2.5 emissions. Typical emissions are around 50 mg/m3. To reduce emissions to less than 20 mg/m3 (as per guidance by IPPC), fabric filters (downstream of ESPs) are recommended. The small size of dust typical of steel industry calls for the careful selection of filter media. 

Typical issues at steel plants are high temperatures, high flue gas loads, and flying sparks causing holes in bags. 

Operating Data

  • Nature of dust: Fine, free-flowing, mildly abrasive

  • Cleaning Mode: Offline or Online


Filter Media340 gsm AR Fiberglass with Membrane750 GSM Fiberglass with MembranePolyester Felt

When To UseFor Reverse Air Baghouses (RABH) at steel plants. Long life and reduced emissions can be expected.For Pulse Jet baghouses with higher temperatures and desire to reduce emission and increase bag life.
Used in multiple dust collectors. If the temperature is <135 deg C, Polyester is the preferred filter media.
