Strengthen production process
As an excellent outsourced gas supplier in the metal production industry, Praxair supplies industrial gases to hundreds of steel and non-ferrous metal plants around the world, helping the rise of buildings, the operation of trains and the navigation of ships. Praxair industrial gases are widely used in metal production to reduce costs, increase energy efficiency, bring environmental benefits and increase productivity.
Our cooperation relationship with customers is very close. In addition to the cooperation in industrial gas supply, we also provide a complete set of services, including the design, construction, start-up and support of application equipment. In addition, we provide comprehensive plants, small plants, steel plants, foundries, and non-ferrous metal plants with various products required for the combustion process, such as gas cylinders and field systems. With our industrial gas solutions to help you, you can focus on the development of your business.
Industrial gases for metal production industry
As part of metal processing, oxygen is used to replace air or increase the oxygen content of air, thereby improving the combustion efficiency in the production of ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
As a key part of stainless steel refining, argon can be used as a stirring agent to prevent the oxidation of molten steel.
Industrial applications in the metal production industry
Argon Oxygen Decarburization
More than 75% of steel worldwide is made using our Argon Oxygen Decarburization (AOD) technology. This technology can reduce material costs, produce more pure metals, and increase production efficiency.
Helicopter endothermic oxygen atmosphere
For foundries, small plants, and stainless steel plants, Praxair's CoJet® gas injection and Supersonic direct injection processes can reduce costs and increase furnace productivity.
Praxair's Lean Oxygen Combustion System can help you turn your air-fueled furnace burner into an oxy-fuel burner, which can increase production efficiency while reducing fuel consumption, operating costs and emissions.
From annealing brazing to sintering carburizing, Praxair's nitrogen-hydrogen-based heat treatment process has the characteristics of low cost and high efficiency, helping you meet the standard requirements.
Thermal oxygen technology
Praxair's thermal oxygen system burns materials quickly and easily preheats oxygen to the required high temperature.
Praxair's Laminar Barrier Inerting technology can reduce alloy oxidation, slagging, and dissolved oxygen, nitrogen, and hydrogen in the metal. The metal products produced are more fluid, easier to cast, and have fewer defects.
Oxygen enrichment in hot furnace
Higher combustion temperatures can be generated without burning more fuel. Praxair furnace oxygen enrichment applications can help you reduce or even eliminate the need for fuels such as coke oven gas and natural gas.
Industrial services for the metal production industry
Praxair not only supplies industrial gases, technologies and applications to the metal production industry, but also works with you to optimize the entire process. From consulting to implementation and practical use, Praxair provides you with a complete set of industrial services to assist in managing gas supply and protecting machines to produce higher quality products.
