Steelworks blast furnaces produce steel from sinter and coke in particular. The raw materials of sinter and coke are (dry) bulk materials that are usually delivered to the steel shop by ship or by train.
When moving and processing these bulk materials on the steel shop premises, for example when unloading ships or during internal transport using conveyor belts with drop points, dust is generated.
In addition, the (outdoor) storage of raw materials -in heaps or stockpiles- is very sensitive to wind dispersion. This dust spreads visibly and invisibly over the plant premises and usually far beyond. Windblown dust is undesirable for several reasons.
Wuvio has developed solutions that help you significantly reduce various forms of dust formation:
Freko-Crust or Eco-Crust S (transparent or color) creates a protective top layer on the stockpiles that ensures minimal exposure of the stored material to wind.
Atomization with water and the addition of Freko-Humidifier - an additive that reduces the surface tension of water - prevents dust formation when handling and transporting bulk materials.
Dry foam, Freko-Foam, is used particularly in drop or transition points of conveyor belts or in crusher plants. The foam has a binding effect and thus prevents dust formation.
RDS (Road Dust Solution) is an additive that is mixed with water and is easy to apply with a spray boom and water truck.
