Steel Works Duisburg (Thyssen Krupp)

At the factory premises of ThyssenKrupp, Europe’s largest steel manufacturing site of an area five times as big as Monaco, STAG compo-nents and systems are mounted at different locations.

After having identified the requirements of the general contractor, STAG developed outstanding overall concepts to be applied in the dust removal of cast and sinter houses.

Dusts arising in the casthouses, stockhouses and underground bunkers for additive substances are separated in filter systems, discharged by means of trough chain conveyors and fed into the silos using pneumatic conveying systems.

The sinter dust generated in the sinter plant is separated in a filter system and then mechanically fed into the pneumatic conveying system. The pneumatic conveyance into an existing ash silo is ensured by means of nitrogen.

Das Container Handling von STAG ermöglicht ein automatisiertes und staubdichtes Abfüllen von Abrollcontainern. Mit der Verfahr- und Kippstation wird der Container geneigt und damit ein idealer Füllgrad erreicht.

Dense Phase Pipe "DenseFlow"

In conventional conveyances of powdered bulk materials through smooth pipes, the irregularity of the flow rises with the increasing pipe length. This in turn, increases the wear of the system.
