Improving of secondary dedusting system of a BOF process at steelworks facility


  • Control de emissions of the hot gasses coming out during hot metal charging, scrap charging, and furnace casting.
  • Gas filtration of the dilutes dust in the combustion gases reducing the impact in the surrounding community

Solutions and results:

  • Charging and casting dedusting hoods design, thermal and strain analysis for 3 BOF converting lines.
  • Thermal and strain analyses, and design for refractory and metal ducts to exhaust the hot gases.
  • Static coolers specification, hangers, supports and layout develop for a brown field application.
  • Approximate gas flow 1,500,000 acfm.
  • Capital approximate investment: 50 M USD.
