Air Products will supply oxygen and oxy-fuel combustion equipment to KCC Corporation in Sejong, South Korea.

The industrial gas equipment will be used for a new glass fibre production line at the Sejong site, scheduled to come on-stream in 2019.

Kyo-Yung Kim, President of Air Products Korea, said: “We have been supplying different offerings to KCC’s various production lines, including the Sejong site.

“It is our honour to have their continued confidence in our oxy-fuel combustion technology and integrated solution to support their growth plans.”

The integrated solution will encompass long-term gaseous oxygen and oxy fuel combustion equipment, including its Cleanfire burner. It will support the glass manufacturer’s glass fibre used in electric vehicles and lightweight automobiles.

Mr Kim continued: “Air Products has enabled a long list of glassmakers worldwide to become more productive, energy efficient and sustainable.

“Leveraging our vast experience, we are committed to working with our customers in Korea to build a greener country together.”

Air Products will also install a Prism vacuum swing adsorption (VSA) oxygen generator at Sejong for on-site gas supply.
