“Anyone can supply molecules. Air Products’ after-sales technical support has been phenomenal.”
Argon, an inert gas, is commonly used in applications across metals production operations to improve quality, and increase efficiency and yield.
An inert gas for cryogenic, heat transfer, shielding, leak detection, analytical and lifting applications
Valued for its reactive and protective properties, and used by many industries such as electronics, foods, glass, chemicals, refining and more can benefit from its unique properties to improve quality, optimize performance and reduce costs.
Nitrogen is routinely used in applications across foundries, integrated and mini mills, specialty/stainless, and non-ferrous metals production operations.
Oxygen can improve combustion through increased heat transfer, higher flame temperatures, and reduced volume of fuel gases in metals production operations.
