Scheuch metals industry

Iron and Steel

Scheuch offers comprehensive solutions for emissions control, exhaust gas cooling, and dust control for a variety of iron and steel processing applications:

  • Coking, sintering, pelletizing
  • Material handling
  • Pig iron production
  • Converter/electric steel production
  • Ladle furnaces
  • Vacuum systems
  • Continuous and mold casting

Non-Ferrous Metals

Within the non-ferrous metal industries such as copper, brass, zinc, and aluminum, Scheuch offers exhaust gas cooling, dust control, and sorption system solutions.

Foundry

Depending on application requirements, components cast from non-ferrous metals create dirty exhaust air primarily during the smelting, casting, mold, and sand process.  Scheuch offers a full range of products and solutions for all foundry applications.

Metal Process

The range of air pollution control solutions offered by Scheuch covers a whole host of metal processing requirements from dust control to waste heat utilization.

  • Sandblasting facilities
  • Flame and laser-cutting machines
  • Welding
  • Hot-dip galvanizing
Scheuch baghouse technology

DUST FILTRATION

Process Filters

Scheuch’s innovative air pollution control (APC) technology have found their place in a variety of applications across the globe.  Our global subsidiaries allow us to meet our client’s clean air requirements through every step of the manufacturing process.  Product scope extends from baghouse dust collectors to exhaust gas cooling and waste heat utilization.


Scheuch SMC Impulse Filter

DUST FILTRATION

Nuisance Filters

Because of their large-volume valves and patented Impulse cleaning system, the Compact Impulse Filter model stands out with its low operating and maintenance costs.  In addition, the compressed air cleaning system, the filter bag or cage design ensures the highest levels of operating reliability.


Scheuch hot gas filter

DUST FILTRATION

Hot-Gas Filter

Scheuch’s Hot-Gas Filter is the future of exhaust gas cleaning and dust control.  This model can really take the heat. One of the many advantages is the high-temperature resistance of the ceramic (candle) filter elements. While conventional bag filters with fabric media reach their limits at process temperatures of 500° F (260° C), for hot-gas filters and their ceramic filter elements, even 932° F (500° C) is not a problem.


Scheuch dry sorption technology

EXHAUST GAS CLEANING

Dry Sorption

Scheuch specializes in providing customized solutions for each in­di­vid­ual application to ensure the best combination to maximize investment costs and minimize op­er­at­ing expenses.  Scheuch dry sorption technologies include reducing acidic pollutants (HF, HCL, SOx) that use additives based on Ca (cal ­cium) or Na (sodium).


Scheuch heat recovery and condensation technology

HEAT EXCHANGERS and COOLING SYSTEMS

Waste Heat Utilization

Waste heat utilization systems used with local heat and district heat allow the energy that is recovered to be put to the best possible use in a profitable way.  Scheuch developed the Energy Recovery & Cleaning System (ERCS) that maximizes waste heat utilization for boiler outputs of up to 200 MW using condensers and economizers.


Scheuch gas conditioning tower

HEAT EXCHANGERS and COOLING SYSTEMS

Gas Conditioning Tower

When performing exhaust gas cleaning, the exhaust gas needs to be cooled down prior to starting the cleaning process.  Scheuch’s gas conditioning towers provide exceptional efficiency due to its optimal instrument-based design and layout combined with adapted controls.


Scheuch swing out fan

FANS

Radial Fans

Scheuch has built more than 70,000 industrial-grade radial fans to transport clean or exhaust air, chips, and fibrous material as well as explosive gas mixtures.  Over the years, we have created and perfected a comprehensive program of roughly 1,700 fan types.  These have pressure ranges from 750 Pa (4 in WC) to 30,000 Pa (80 in WC) and volume flows from 750 to 960,000 Am3/h (300 to 380,000 acfm).


Scheuch rotary valve airlock

BULK MATERIAL HANDLING

Rotary Valves

Rotary valves are used to discharge dust, chipboard shavings, and fibrous conveyed goods.  They can also be used as shut-off devices.  Scheuch rotary valves can also be designed resistant to ignition and flame penetration for explosion decoupling purposes.


Scheuch screw conveyor components

BULK MATERIAL HANDLING

Screw Conveyors

Tube and trough-type screw conveyors are used to continuously transport bulk materials at throughput volumes of 2 to 500 m3/h and with diameters between 8 and 40 inches (200 and 1,000 mm).  Model types of screw conveyors include pipe, trough, and custom design.


Scheuch Pendulum Flap Valve

BULK MATERIAL HANDLING

Pendulum Flaps

Pendulum flaps are used for the continuous dosing, blocking and discharging of bulk materials. The flexible structure of the Scheuch pendulum flaps enables reliable channeling and separation of free-flowing bulk materials out of and into pressure-difference chambers (e.g. filter systems). These are actuated pneumatically, electrically or mechanically.
