Air Products pioneered the on-site gas supply concept in 1951 and is a leading, global industrial gas supplier (oxygen, nitrogen, argon, hydrogen, carbon dioxide) with a comprehensive range of industrial gases, gas supply options, and cost-efficient technologies. From the melt shop to the rolling mill, we can help you realize operating cost savings through proprietary technology in combustion, gas injection, shrouding and heat treating. Our key areas of technical expertise include: blast furnace (oxygen enrichment), BOF (slag splashing, bottom stirring, ladle/tundish preheating), EAF (oxy-fuel combustion, decarburization, bottom stirring, ladle preheating, post-combustion), AOD (gas controls, tuyere design), rolling mill (reheating) and finishing mill (annealing).

  • Novel Method for Stirring BOF Melts in Conjunction with Slag Splashing

    The basic oxygen furnace (BOF) is used to convert iron into steel by blowing oxygen into the hot metal to remove carbon and impurities. The metallurgy and efficiency of top oxygen blowing can be improved with the use of bottom stirring. A novel tuyere was developed by Air Products for bottom stirring that can maintain the stirring efficiency of the tuyere for a BOF campaign in conjunction with slag splashing, which can significantly improve the economics and the batch quality, while maintaining the efficiency of the bottom stirring for a much longer campaign.
