The off gas treatment plant treats the off-gas from the blast furnace, fuming furnace, dross reverberatory, and primary furnace. The total handling capacity is 126168.07m3/h, SO2 density: 0.054%.The off-gas volume of blast furnace is 54920m3/h and fuming furnace is 39735m3/h while the dross reveberatory furnace is 7168 m3/h. The off-gas produced from primary furnace for acid-making is 24345.07m3/h. Zinc oxide scrubbing technology is adopted to treat the off gas. The discharged ZnSO4 solution is 1.5m3/h and the content of ZnSO4 is 112.5g/l. The removed SO2 is 57.41m3/h and the efficiency is 85%.The SO2 in the discharged air is &
