Introducing oxygen into your iron and steelmaking processes can help you reduce fuel use, produce higher temperatures and lower production costs.
A key component in our Argon Oxygen Decarburization technology, argon is used to create over 75% of the world’s stainless steel.
Found at the core of our heat-treating industrial applications, nitrogen is a non-flammable gas that eliminates unwanted gases from your process. It is also used as an inert gas to store and transport the combustible materials used in metal production.
Hydrogen is used to prevent oxidation and is the key component in the heat treating process.
Introduce our Dilute Oxygen Combustion application into your ladle preheating process and reheat furnaces for faster heat times with less fuel and reduced emissions.
Adding Praxair’s cryogenic carbon dioxide or liquid nitrogen to your meat mixing operation can help you keep your product at an optimal temperature and slow bacterial growth. Properly chilled products ensure the perfect blending of fats, flavorings and spices to help with accurate and repeatable forming of patties and other products with exact dimensions and weights.
Designed for enhanced Powdered Coal Injection, our Hot Oxygen Technology can increase PCI rates in your blast furnace.
Adaptable to nearly every system and easy to install, our Laminar Barrier Inerting industrial application excludes unwanted gases from your processes to reduce oxidation and slag formation.
Our Stove Oxygen Enrichment application can produce higher temperatures in blast furnaces with oxygen, reducing or potentially even eliminating the need for natural and coke oven gases.
We offer more than industrial gases and applications to integrated steel mills. We work with you to optimize your process. From consultation to implementation and use, we offer a range of services that help you manage your gas supply and make a better product.
