Steel duct assemblies have a wide range of uses. Refax, Inc. specializes in ductwork that transfers heavy wear/particulate air as well gases through any system in any industry.

The downcomer is a series of ducts, elbows, and expansion joints that transfer dirty particulate heavy air and gas from the blast furnace to a process center for disposal and recycling. All ductwork, elbows, and expansion joints were made from formed SA1750CR chrome carbide plate cut, formed, fit, and welded at our shop. All welds needed to be ASME gas tight with tolerances of +/- 1/16". This project had various hold points for inspection with a full final inspection for welds, whole layout, expansion joint movement, and all other various critical items. Once complete we will coat each part with red oxide primer and deliver to our customer.

Downcomer Duct Work Specifications

Product Description This duct assembly is used as a downcomer. The primary function of a downcomer is to move gas with a high concentration of particulates. The gas is moved through the downcomers to a dust catcher to further clean the gas of particulates. Because the particulates cause a high amount of wear, the ductwork is made from rolled 1750 SA chrome carbide plate. The flanges are machined and pre fit for a gas tight seal.
