Is your startup/Innovative company working on filtration process solutions? 

If so, our call for projects should be of interest to you!

Our current focus: 

In the Iron and Steel Industry, the Paul Wurth INBA slag granulation and dewatering technology is known as one of the most reliable slag treatment processes available on the market.

The main critical factor in a slag granulation and dewatering plant is known to be the significant amount of fine slag sand particles (so-called “fines”), which naturally cannot be completely retained by the filter screens of the core process equipment and thus remain in the process water to a certain extent. These fines are highly abrasive and can cause wear or clogging issues.

Therefore, in order to further reduce the need for maintenance and thereby strengthen our market position, we are looking for an additional filtration unit that could allow removing a far higher amount/fraction of fines from the process water.

What we are looking for: 

We are looking for a technological process/system to meet the following design specification.
