Linde is proud to support our customers with proven expertise in gases, metallurgy, manufacturing and a comprehensive supply network for world-class industrial and specialty gases, gas mixtures, application technologies and control and monitoring equipment.
Benefits of Industrial Gases for Manufacturing
We are known for supplying manufacturers with high-quality industrial gases for fuel enrichment, metal treatment, and atmospheric control. Rely on us to provide you with the industrial gases and supply systems for your specific applications.
Gases for manufacturing are useful for a wide range of purposes. Depending on your selection, you could see some of the advantages below:
- Increase combustion temperatures.
- Serve as a protective and reducing atmosphere
- Cool materials during production
- Produce powdered metals and decrease the risk of impurities
- Control the transfer of heat between metal surfaces
Increase productivity while staying within your budget with industrial gases that enable you to do more with less. Our experienced team is ready to review your operations and will recommend the gases, supply systems, and equipment needed to optimize your process.

industrial applications for manufacturing and materials processing
Annealing is the process of heating steel above the transformation temperature and slowly cooling it to increase the workability of the metal. Nitrogen or hydrogen-based atmospheres are needed for a bright annealed surface finish.
Furnace brazing is commonly used when large batches of parts are to be processed at one time. We provide a reducing atmosphere to help you produce higher quality joints, with controlled heat temperatures and improved production rates.
Carburizing is a heat treatment process in which steel absorbs carbon while the metal is heated. Our technology provides ideal conditions for better control and repeatability.
Furnace inerting and parts quenching are common heat treating applications. We offer gases in a variety of supply systems to meet your process requirements.
Process gases play a vital role in additive manufacturing and are involved in every step of the fabrication chain – from metal powder production through 3D printing.
At Linde, we have the resources to provide you with the most advanced concrete block production process, while reducing your carbon footprint.
