Metals

Meeting the challenges of tomorrow, today

Reducing production costs while improving quality, productivity and efficiency through optimization 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.
