An essential gas for metals production operations

Oxygen is required for any combustion process. By supplementing or replacing combustion air with oxygen, overall combustion can be improved through increased heat transfer, higher flame temperatures, and reduced volume of flue gases. As a result, you can achieve greater fuel efficiencies and increase production rates by implementing oxygen injection, enrichment or full oxy-fuel combustion.
Oxy Fuel Burner


Oxygen can be used in a wide range of applications in all phases of metals production, including:

  • Roasting and smelting
  • Preheating
  • Melting and refining
  • Decarburization
  • Post combustion
  • Leaching

to provide numerous benefits such as:

  • Promoting beneficial refining reactions
  • Reducing impurities
  • Increasing productivity and yield
  • Reducing electricity consumption
  • Easing baghouse loading
  • Reducing fuel/raw materials costs
