The Lead bearing material from Batteries, along with appropriate fluxes, Slag and other scrap & process wastes, is smelted in a Blast/ Rotary Furnace or a combination of the two, depending on the product mix e.g. hard Antimonial Lead, soft crude Lead etc. The furnaces operate in a temperature range of 900-1250 degrees centigrade. We supply both tilting/ non tilting type Rotary and Blast Furnaces designed as per the capacity requirement along with a customized complement of accessories and equipment. The blast and/ or rotary furnace(s) configuration is decided after taking into account factors like, the smelting, refining and pollution control plant configuration, designed battery processing capacity, expected capacity utilization range, desired degree of flexibility in product mix, composition of locally available raw material, consumables etc.
Gravita's furnaces are designed to minimize Sulphur-dioxide emissions in flue gases by conversion into non-reachable solid compounds to the maximum possible extent. The flue gases released are treated by the air pollution control plant, of our proprietary design, in which a typical configuration comprises of dust collectors, cyclones, cooling towers, spark arrestors, bag-house filtration units, induced draft fans (ID Fan), wet scrubbers and a chimney/stack. We provide detailed process fine-tuning and training inputs in the commissioning phase to ensure optimum functioning of our Secondary
Lead Smelting Plant
