Abstract The report describes a coke battery, placed into operation in May 1973 by National Steel's Weirton Steel Division, Weirton, WV. Consisting of 87 ovens, each 6 m tall, the battery includes features to reduce environmental discharges from the coke pushing and quenching operations. Pushing emissions were to be contained by a one-spot coke receiver car and retractable coke guide hood evacuated through a fan/scrubber system on the traction drive car. The hot coke would then be discharged from the receiver car into below-track hoppers from which it was withdrawn and quenched semicontinuously in vibrating conveyors. Operating costs were estimated to be 26 and 280% higher than for conventional uncontrolled pushing and baffled quenching.
