COKE OVEN DOOR CLEANING
WHAT IS COKE OVEN DOOR CLEANING?
Coke is a fuel used in the blast furnaces of steel works, to reduce iron oxide in the production of iron. It is made by heating coal in a coke oven, at temperatures as high as 2,000°C. This removes volatile parts of the coal such as water, gas, and tar.
High pressure water jetting is used very effectively to remove tar and carbon deposits from the oven doors, ensuring that an effective seal is maintained, preventing harmful emissions.
Flowplant offers a complete water jetting system for coke oven door cleaning, using the Harben Century pump, operating at 500-600 bar. The Century pump can operate with “dirty” water making it very robust and reliable in the challenging environments found at most steel works.
