Processing of Ferrous and Non-ferrous Metals
Dust and particulate matter emissions typically occur during the transport of metal ore over long distance belt conveyors and in the subsequent Eirich-mixer pelletising process. LTB has supplied a number of extremely robust integrated DrySORB scrubber system solutions for this application, often running without the need for additional water.
Elsewhere, the production and processing of ferrous and non-ferrous metals - including the roasting and sintering of metal (and sulphide) ores, the production of pig iron or steel processing generates pollutant emissions which have to be controlled before entry to the stack. Aside from dust and particulate control, depending on the process conditions, VOC and NOx can be reduced using LTB ROxiTHERM regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO) and NOxiTHERM SCR systems respectively.
