Air Products To Feature Industrial Gases And Technologies For The Steel Industry At AISTech 2013

Stocks in this article: APD

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) will feature its comprehensive range of industrial gases and cost-efficient technologies for the steel industry at AISTech 2013 in Pittsburgh, Pa., from May 6-8. From the hot end to the rolling mill, Air Products provides the gases, equipment, technologies, and technical services that can help steel producers reduce fuel consumption, minimize their carbon footprint, increase productivity, optimize gas efficiency, and lower their overall costs.

AISTech attendees can stop by Air Products booth 434 to see the rapid heating and uniform heating oxy-fuel burners that will be on display and discuss how the company's oxy-fuel technologies can help improve the efficiency of their operations. Air Products will have knowledgeable specialists on-hand to speak with steelmakers about their specific process challenges. Drawing from decades of experience and know-how serving the steel industry, Air Products can help recommend process improvements and identify solutions to problems.

As part of the conference's Technical Sessions, Air Products will share results of an oxy-fuel combustion trial that demonstrate the importance of a "furnace control strategy" to realizing benefits when switching from air-fuel to oxy-fuel combustion. In a separate presentation, the company will review the benefits and challenges of oxy-fuel technologies, address myths and misconceptions, and provide examples of where oxy-fuel combustion makes the most sense.  More information on these technical presentations:

  • "Importance of Control Strategy for Oxy-fuel Burners in a Steel Reheat Furnace" May 6, 3 PM (Rod and Bar Rolling Session)
  • "Oxy-fuel Burner Technologies for Steel Applications" May 8, 3:30 PM (Energy and Utilities Session)

Air Products will highlight its full line of gases—including oxygen, nitrogen, argon, and hydrogen—which the company provides in a variety of delivery options to match each customer's requirements. For small volume users, the company's CryoEase® microbulk solution offers an alternative to cylinder supply that eliminates the hassle of cylinder handling. For larger volume customers, Air Products provides traditional bulk liquid and gas supply, as well as PRISM® and tonnage on-site gas generation systems. The company also offers a fast and flexible option for short-term or emergency gas supply through its Air Products Express Services.
