Metal Production

Metal Production

With ULTRA Series® gas production plants, AMCS supplies metal producers with the on-demand means to generate the industrial gases necessary to keep production furnaces operating.  AMCS technology can help increase efficiency throughout the entire metal production process.

Applications:

  • Electric arc furnaces
  • Basic oxygen furnaces
  • Stainless steel making foundries

Gases and Liquids

  • Argon
  • Nitrogen
  • Oxygen

Application Examples:

  • Nitrogen , specific to Inerting and Purging in the Metal Production arena, is used to:
    • activate shutoff switches in furnaces and burners
    • discharge gas and slag by bubbling through porous bed stones or lances
    • in nozzle atomization to spray metal melts and gain high quality metal powers
    • sinter metallurgical powers under shielding gas
  • Nitrogen , specific to Cooling, Preserving and Deep Freezing in the Metal Production arena, is used for:
    • Temper and harden metal parts through high pressure (HP) gas quenching after annealing furnaces
    • embrittle knock off lugs and cast iron
    • remover residual austenite in hardened steel parts using cooling baths
  • Oxygen, specific to combustion and chemical oxidation by replacing air in the Metal Production arena, is used to:
    • Refine pig iron in converters
    • Melting, refining and alloying with Oxygen lances in electrical arc furnaces
    • Increase burner and furnace performance for 
      • Blast furnaces
      • Aluminum or Copper furnaces
      • Blast
  • Argon, specific to low reactive gases, high inert capability, thermal conductivity and solubility in water and oils in the Metal Production arena, is used to:
    • Feed powered alloy components into steel and other metal melts
    • Atomise molten metals with high-pressure jets for producing high-quality metal powders
    • Anneal stainless steal
    • Prevent oxidation of hot, light metal alloys
