Integrated Steel

This market continues to be the work-horse industry. To service the Integrated Steel Industry, a filter supplier must have flexibility to work with all the areas that require some form of filtration. Menardi is a leading supplier of both liquid and gas filtration for this market. Pulse-jet, Shaker, and Reverse Air baghouses can be found in an integrated mill. Each area has its own unique problems that require solutions. Below is a partial list of areas in which Menardi has supplied filtration expertise to solve operational problems:

Example Application
One of the most significant problems in Blast Furnace operations is the heavy amount of sparks that travel from the furnace to the baghouse. The sparks land on the outer surface of the filter bag, burning small pinholes into the filter bag. These exposed pinholes allow dust to penetrate to the clean side of the filter and eventually to the environment. Menardi Filters uses an assortment of non-combustible fabrics in conjunction with our Opti-Coat™ precoat to eliminate pinholes. Inspection of the cleaning cycle, filter cake, and hopper evacuation are other areas that must be controlled.
