STEEL PRODUCTION FILTERS & BAGHOUSE MAINTENANCE

We at Albarrie are well aware of the limitations and specific needs of steel producers. In fact we are a major supplier of filter bags & baghouse maintenance services to this industry worldwide.

During the steel production process, filter media is exposed to severe environmental conditions and corrosive gases. Fluctuations in temperature, frequent start ups and shut downs, and the prominent potential for sparks, result in additional strain on filter media.

Albarrie’s experienced filtration specialists will carefully assess your specific applications to ensure that your production operation is running at optimum levels. Albarrie’s proven engineering capabilities enable us to design a fabric specific to your individual process and equipment.

We pride ourselves in making the best possible filter. Our experienced people, quality control program and in-house laboratory ensure that Albarrie’s products are second to none!

Aramid Filtration Media


Aramid fabrics have become the product of choice in a wide range of high temperature filtration processes. The thermal resistance offered by aramid fibers is a key property in protecting against sparks, a common concern in steel production.


Aramid,-5500

 

Fabrics made from aramid fibers can be used in applications where the operating temperature does not exceed 200°C (392°F). Aramid fibers possess good resistance to oxidizing agents; however they possess relatively poor resistance to acids – especially in high moisture applications.

Basalt Filter Bags


Albarrie’s basalt filter bags are made from the only true spark resistant fabric!

 

Basalt is comprised of an extremely stable scrim constructed of mineral Basalt fibers and yarns. This super abrasion resistant fabric has unique mechanical and chemical properties depending on the secondary fiber selected.  Our basalt filter bags are custom fabricated to be used in applications with continuous operating temperature up to 260°C (500°F).

Basalt Options:

Finishes: Plain, Singed, Glazed

Treatments: PTFE membrane, Hydrophobic, Oleophobic, Anti-Static, Flame Retardant

This can double the lifespan of your filter bags.

 

High Efficiency Cleaning provides the following benefits:

    • Saves the purchase and installation of new filter bags and baghouse cages
    • Reduces downtime compared to replacing your filter bags
    • Eliminates the labor costs required to change filter bags and cages
    • Reduces energy consumption
    • Increases permeability within your dust collection system
    • Reduces the pressure drop differential in your baghouse
    • Decreases particulate emissions
