I guess that is part of the air purification modules that help clean and compress the gasses for delivery into the blast furnace.

Cool pics 409.

John...
The wind for the blast furnace is produced at #2 Boiler House by two 17,000+ horsepower turbine driven turbo-blowers(usually only 1 running at a time). The air is filtered by two large bag houses.
 
Excerpt from an earlier MJ article:
Lyle McDaniels, plant manager at Air Products, said the four cold boxes are an $80 million investment to replace the existing operations and increase capacity.
McDaniels said the cold boxes are used in the process of cryogenics, or temperatures of minus 300 degrees, to compress and produce liquids and gases, including nitrogen and argon. Customers include AK Steel and companies making food, electronics and medical applications.
