    A Feasibility Study to Convert Steel Industry Solid Waste into a Red Oxide Primer
    Author(s): Satyanarayana SV* and Ahmed H Al-Balushil

    The steel industries generate a high volume of solid waste each year. The disposal of solid waste is a Hercules task for steel industry management. The solid waste contains heavy metals like iron, chromium, lead, zinc and toxic chemical compounds. The solid waste disposal contributes for ground water pollution and soil pollution. The steel industry solid waste contains a high percentage of iron oxide more than 12%. The aim of this project is to convert steel industry solid waste into a red oxide primer. The solid waste samples are collected from a local steel industry. The samples are crushed and passed through a 53 micron mesh to get fine powder. The powder is mixed with Long oil alkyd, calcium carbonate and Butanol. The mixture mixed intensively by the help of a wet grinder until it gets adhering properties and become as a primer. The adhesive properties of the primer is tested by p.. Read More»
