ThyssenKrup adds dedusting system

ThyssenKrupp Steel Europe will build an additional filter to capture sinter plant dust at their Duisberg plant. The USD 40.6 million project will decrease particulate matter emissions by 450tns/yr. The foundations have been completed and construction work on the steel frame for the building is underway. Completion is scheduled for October 2011. With the new system, cleaned air is passed through another fabric filter, reducing particulate matter content by over 50%. The dedusting system will be built on a 650 sq/m site adjacent to the sinter belts. The fabric filter is 13,640sq/m and exhaust air is sucked through the filter’s 14,000 tubes. Powered by an 1800KW motor, the fan that sucks the air through the system runs at a speed of 22m per second. ThyssenKrupp has introduced 41 new measures to decrease particulate pollution as per their particulate reduction program.
