The report briefly reviews the sintering process as it applies to the U.S. integrated iron and steel industry. The review includes data on characteristics of the emissions, and a list of all the iron and steel reclamation (sinter) plants in the U.S., their annual capacity, and the types of emission control equipment used. The report contains a detailed discussion of the theoretical and practical aspects of designing both wet and dry electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) to control the sinter machine windbox emissions. It gives design specifications for a proposed wet ESP installation on a large modern sinter plant.
