“By engaging Air Products at an early stage in our Zambian [Kansanshi copper-gold mining] project, we were able to explore oxygen supply options and determine what we believed to be the best system for our specific process requirements. Based on their prior work in the copper industry, Air Products was able to propose an effective plant design based on its other operating plants, and also meet our critical project schedule.”Zenon Wozniak, Director Projects, First Quantum Minerals
“Air Products is a reliable supplier of industrial gases and their product helps us maximize our operations. Their customer-focused approach and technical support were key in optimizing the oxygen system for our process. We look forward to continuing to work with Air Products in the future.”Alain Thibault, Metallurgist, Osisko Mining
Air Products gases, typically provided in gaseous and liquid form, enable customers in a wide range of industries to improve their environmental performance, product quality, and productivity.
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.
