Metals

Meeting the challenges of tomorrow, today

Reducing production costs while improving quality, productivity and efficiency through optimisation of critical resources, are just some of the challenges facing today’s metals industry. Producers must reduce the environmental impact of their operations under stringent regulations. The industry requires oxygen, nitrogen, and argon, for applications from oxygen enrichment for blast furnaces to surface protection and degasification.

Air Liquide supplies these industrial gases in large volumes via Bulk or on-site production supply as well as storage infrastructure, monitoring and maintenance. We leverage our skills and innovative technologies to provide safe, reliable, and competitive gas-supply solutions for diverse needs. If your operations require medium or small volumes of industrial gases, we can deliver them to your facility in bulk or in cylinders. We are your partner for the long haul.

Air Liquide has developed specific oxy-combustion solutions for the metals industry, which consist of oxygen supply, patented burners, and expert support for the implementation of oxy-combustion technologies suitable for all steps in the manufacturing process.

Steel Making

Air Liquide supplies industrial oxygen gas, related equipment and services to support steel making processes that utilise Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF's) for melting, metal transfer, and reheating operations.

Non-Ferrous Metals

Air Liquide supplies industrial oxygen gas related to melting and metal transfer of non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, lead, brass and copper with refiners and smelters.

Metallurgical Products

Air Liquide provides gases and services for reheating furnaces and heat treatment applications to create protective atmospheres for galvanising and annealing. We serve manufacturers of products such as powder metals, wire, ingots, strip, slab, shot and other metallurgical products.
