BAG FILTERS[] ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS DEVELOPED BY JMB ZEPPELIN FOR POWDERED PRODUCTS AND HIGH TEMPERATURES

JMB ZEPPELIN received an order from a nickel ore mining company located in Goiás to deliver a complete receiving, conveying and storage system for calcined nickel.

The calcined nickel has extremely fine particles and a temperature that reaches up to 240º C.

To dedust the receiving hopper, which receives mineral fom different sources, the original solution was based on a filter with bags made of fiberglass and dilution air intake valve to reduce the temperature of the dusty air. This proved to be unsuitable. The fiberglass bags showed to be permeable after a few days of operation, representing a big environmental problem.

The Zeppelin Group found an excellent solution with big adventages for the final client.
