NLMK Lipetsk deploys high-performance dedusting system at Blast Furnace No.3
NLMK Lipetsk has revamped its Blast Furnace No. 3 dedusting system, ensuring a dust capture rate of 99.9%. As a result of NLMK’s continuous environmental upgrades, all of its blast furnaces are now equipped with advanced dedusting systems that are on par with best global technologies.
The new dedusting system comprises: a filtering unit, exhaust fans, a gas duct network, and specialized capture hoods installed over sources of smelting waste. The system uses high-performance bag filters that ensure a reduction of residual dust in off-gases by 95% vs. the pre-revamp level.
The entirety of captured dust is reused in blast furnaces as iron ore feed.
Project investment totalled RUB 320 million.
