The report gives pre-engineering analyses, evaluations, and recommendations in an ongoing research project dealing with the development of a retrofittable concept for minimizing emissions from door seals on coke ovens. It includes evaluations drawn from tasks dealing with mathematical and physical modeling, and from a task dealing with field-data collection and field experiments. Based on these results, the recommended metal-to-metal sealing system includes: a simplified-shape seal, a new improved procedure for mounting and adjusting seals, and high-strength heat-resistant materials. Limited experiments with luting compounds were encouraging. If developed further, this might be an attractive alternative, particularly for older batteries.
