Case Study in the Metallurgy Sector

A double challenge of countering fire risks while ensuring performance

A metallurgical company was using a cartridge-type dust collector to capture emissions from metal smelting. Because of the high rate of wear, the dust collector had to be replaced. Steel melting caused a lot of sparks, so the company was faced with major fire and leakage problems.

Concept-air skillfully took on this daunting challenge.

The challenge:

  • Install a cartridge dust collector in a confined area.
  • Prevent fire hazards by an effective spark detection and suppression system.

The solution:

Concept-air suggested the company install an optical spark detector equipped with a water spray system to extinguish them. The spark detector then found that 30 to 50 sparks were continuing to form every hour.

In addition to installing a new, more efficient dust collector, Concept-air implemented an effective spark extinguishing system. As a result of this remarkable improvement the company now only observes about one spark per week.

The benefits:

  • Maintenance requirements reduced to a minimum;
  • Reduced risk of fire and explosion;
  • Improved safety of employees and equipment;
  • Increased equipment life.
