Dustcatcher Dome Valve

The Dustcatcher Dome Valve has been developed on the back of years of success with the Clyde Dome Valve. Purposely designed bulk materials shutoff valves for use in the main dust collection process line of any blast furnace.

Iron Oxide dust is a continuous byproduct of the iron making process and must be collected and disposed of on a regular basis to ensure proper availability and performance of the iron making process.
