Also many process filters for powder recovery after drying plants (spray-, fluid bed-, and drum-drying) and also milling and agglomeration plants.
Flue gas cleaning/high-temperature filtration has over the past 15 years become an important line of business for Simatek – not only as fly ash collectors, but more and more complete plants also including ab- and adsorption of acid and toxic components in the flue gas where Simatek has joined into partnerships with contractors and system builders supplying our unique bag house filter technology.
