Iron & Steel Applications for the Metal Production Industry 

Strengthening Your Metal Production Process

Linde’s industrial gases are used extensively in metal production to lower cost, improve energy efficiency, deliver environmental benefits, and improve productivity. Linde has a wide array of industrial applications throughout the processing chain of steel production in foundries, integrated steel mills and mini-mills. From gas injection technology in electric arc furnaces to ladle preheating, Linde’s industrial applications can help your steel mill produce more steel at a lower cost and with less energy while delivering improved environmental benefits.

Iron & Steel Applications

Argon Oxygen Decarburization (AOD)

Over 75% of the world’s steel is made with our Argon Oxygen Decarburization (AOD) process. Lower your material costs, produce cleaner metals and increase productivity with AOD.

Direct Oxygen Injection

Used in foundries, mini-mills and stainless steel mills, our COJET® gas injection and Supersonic direct injection processes lower costs and improve furnace productivity.

Oxygen Enhanced Combustion

Our dilute oxygen-enhanced combustion system helps convert your furnace air-fuel burners into oxy-fuel burners. This may increase your productivity and help decrease fuel consumption.

Hot Oxygen Technology

Our hot oxygen system rapidly burns hard to combust materials and easily preheats oxygen to high temperatures at point of use, to give you the best possible results.

Stove Oxygen Enrichment

Our stove oxygen enrichment application can help you reduce or potentially eliminate the need for fuels like coke oven gas and natural gas while generating higher blast temperatures.
