Abstract A solution to the difficult problem of collecting dust and smoke produced by non-ferrous metal melting furnaces. In the example presented, lead melting furnaces are equipped with an annular exhaust rim with a duct leading to a polyester felt filter. Results of a technical and hygiene study of the installation show it to be an effective means of improving hygiene conditions; it can be applied to other heat processes.
