A multipurpose gas for the metals and materials processing industry
Hydrogen is used in metals & materials processing to reduce metal oxides and to prevent oxidation during heat-treating processes and metal powder production. Hydrogen is used in high-velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) processes for generating high heat, low oxidation and high particle velocities. It can also be used as a process gas in atmosphere plasma spray applications. Our applications engineers can help you select a supply system to meet your pressure and volume requirements.
Air Products offer liquid hydrogen and compressed hydrogen gas in a variety of purities and various modes of supply around the world thanks to our network of storage and transfill facilities.
Hydrogen for Metals and Materials Processing
Hydrogen can be used in a wide range of applications across metals and materials component manufacturing:
- Thermal and plasma spraying
- Heat treating
- Metal powder production
to provide numerous benefits, such as:
- Reducing or eliminating surface oxidation
- Improving part quality
- Increasing efficiency and yields
- Decreasing scrap
