Dust explosion protection at a blast furnace

Many substances used in the production of steel, for example coal, can produce dust. Some of these dust-producing materials form explosive mixtures with air. Dust measuring devices are employed in the vicinity of alloying and aggregating systems to detect hazardous dust concentrations. Durable and reliable monitoring technologies are ideal for fulfilling this important task. The sensors in the DUSTHUNTER product family, with their long maintenance intervals, provide an ideal solution thanks to their low overall operating costs.
