Iron & Steel Today December 2018 / January 2019Derek Stuart, Global Product Manager - Power at AMETEK Land, looks at the importance of reducing harmful emissions and improving combustion efficiency in reheat furnaces

Among the most pressing issues for the iron and steel industry is the need to reduce its environmental footprint. Worldwide air pollution control regulations require producers to measure emissions of control emissions of species, such as carbon monoxide (CO) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and particulate matter, from the steelmaking process and downstream operations, such as rolling mills.

In addition, the widespread public awareness of climate change has put pressure on the supply chains of many consumer goods producers to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide (CO2). Fortunately, there are a number of technologies that can be used to improve combustion efficiency and reduce pollution emissions.
