Competencies Temperature MMPThe flame icon represents Praxair’s involvement in combustion and high heat applications with the capabilities to take you from the mine to the heat treater and everything in between. Praxair provides you with knowledgeable support every step of the way.
There are many factors to take into consideration when working with glass, steel, and non-ferrous materials. A slight error can compromise the integrity of your product and give you less than superior results. Luckily, Praxair has been working with metal material processors, glass manufacturers, and steel manufacturers for many years. Although the practice of working with ferrous and non-ferrous metals has been around for a long time, expertise combined with research and development continues to discover ways to improve quality, lower costs and deliver productivity benefits. Whether your focus is on melting, preheating, hardening, brazing or inerting, you want to be certain that you are applying the right industrial gas, controlled atmosphere, and technology to get the job done right.

Praxair’s industrial gases are used extensively in glass and metal production and processing to lower cost, improve energy efficiency, deliver environmental benefits, and improve productivity.
