Steel Slag

Recovering metals and producing filler from steelworks slag

The scarcity of resources is increasingly forcing engineers to tap industrial by-products as “sources of raw materials”. By developing new
processes Loesche addresses both the challenges of environmental technology and the economic constraints of conserving resources in the form of its “recovery philosophy”.

This dry process developed by Loesche for recovering metals from steel slag combines all the advantages of conventional processes:

  • Efficient and cost-effective metal recovery in the coarse range
  • Virtually 100% metal recovery down to the finest fractions range by means of optimised dry grinding, classification and sorting technology
  • Production of a high-quality mineral filler product with precisely definable grain size distribution

The process is particularly suitable for Slag from the production of stainless steels, LD slag and Metallurgically modified slag.
