SoniCool™ Evaporative Gas Cooling & Conditioning uses a finely atomized water spray to cool EAF, BOF off-gases from over 2,400°F (1,315°C) to as low as 240°F (115°C), protecting ductwork and downstream air pollution control equipment from high temperature and sparks, while providing rapid cooling for dioxin and furan control. By optimizing humidity levels, SoniCool™ helps electrostatic precipitators. The water spray completely evaporates while cooling gases. There is no free water and no troublesome deposits in ducts, towers or hoppers. Turbotak rugged nozzles are made to the exact requirement, and ideally suited to the harsh conditions in the steel manufacturing process while still producing ultra-fine sprays, with precise control of dropsize and spray coverage.
