HKM Duisburg FGC

At its location in Duisburg-Huckingen, Germany, the Hüttenwerke Krupp Mannesmann GmbH (HKM) runs an integrated iron and steelworks.


As the general contractor, the Steinmüller Babcock Environment GmbH was in charge of the construction of a new fabric filter for ash removal purposes from the sintering plant. The configuration of this plant is a process gas cleaning facility by means of bicarbonate (NaHCO3) and hearth furnace coke (HOK).
As a long standing supplier, STAG was entrusted in 2018 with the provision of a pneumatic conveying system for the transport of the reaction products (residues) separated in the fabric filter, into the recirculation intermediate silo or the residue silos.


The adsorbents required for the separation of toxic substances are discharged from the fresh adsorbent silos by means of volumetric dosing units, and subsequently injected – prior to the fabric filter - into the flue gas channel using a butterfly valve and the pneumatic dilute phase conveying method.
