SCENARIO FOR THE SECTOR
World crude steel production for the 64 countries reporting to the World Steel Association (Worldsteel) was 158.3 million tonnes (Mt) in November 2020, an increase of 6.6% compared to November 2019 . In addition, in Italy, Steel production increased by 1.9% in 2018 compared to the previous year .
Part of this production is conducted with the help of the Electric Arc Furnace (Eaf). This steel production process produces waste powders which are difficult to manage because they are defined as hazardous waste and are therefore subjected to special treatment by means of a dust abatement plant.
PNR has been offering nozzles and specific solutions for the metallurgical industry and specifically for dust abatement for years.
For effective dust abatement it is necessary to know precisely the grain size of the products to be abated. The abatement of the dust generated during the production process can be done with various ranges of nozzles, depending on the type of attachment required, the type of spray and the flow rate.
