Hemer – April 2023

In cooperation with ANDRITZ Metals and Talum, ANDRITZ Metals has selected Schuh
Anlagentechnik as a technology partner for oil mist extraction in the cold rolling mill and emulsion
mist extraction in the hot rolling mill.

The Schuh Anlagentechnik advanced oil mist and emulsion mist separators feature filter media
that can be regenerated. The priciple of separation is based on the effect, that particels cannot follow the
streamline of the gas and at the impinge of an obstacle and, consequently, stick to a boundary
surface. The combination of these single effects of separation by inertia, the rectifying effect and
diffusion enables a largely separation of the drops and air.

For the hot rolling mill with surface temperatures of up to 550°C, emulsion mist is captured by
suction hoods, routed through a piping system into the Schuh emulsion mist separator, and then
exhausted through a radial fan into the exhaust stack.

In the cold rolling mill there are temperatures up to 60°C and the separation of oil mist and
transport air occurs in the KK series oil mist separator.

The scope of the project includes planning, delivery, assembly, and commissioning. Completion is
scheduled for the first quarter of 2024.

Rely on Schuh Anlagentechnik for clean work environments and sustainable extraction solutions.
