One of the most popular methods for steel making is the Electric Arc Furnace. These range massively in size and electrical power but always feature a circular ceramic lined vessel capable of tilting in which the steel is melted and processed. The furnace is usually charged with a mixture of scrap steel and/or pig iron. Flux and other slag building ingredients will also be added. After the furnace roof is closed the carbon electrodes (usually three in number) are lowered towards the scrap metal beneath until an electric arc strikes from the tip of each electrode to the charge material. This rapidly heats and melts the charge. After melting is completed several other processes occur such as oxygen lancing and possibly addition of alloying metals until the temperature and metallurgy of the molten steel meets specification. Then the furnace is tilted firstly to tap off the finished molten steel and then further tilted – often in the reverse direction – to pour off the slag. Throughout all these stages – charging, melting, and pouring – a series of specialized hoods, off takes and canopy capture the copious metal fume. Some of these flows, especially directly from the furnace during melting, can be at very high temperature and integral water cooling of the close fitting duct may be needed. By blending the hot and cooler fume sources the resultant temperature can be managed to suit a bag filter centered air pollution control system. The AAF FabriPulse XLC with its facility for off line cleaning make an ideal choice for this arduous application.
