Air Products and Chemicals Inc. of Trexlertown has been awarded a long-term contract to supply oxygen to South Korea’s largest construction material manufacturer, KCC Corp.
The company is a leading glass maker. The contract is for KCC’s new wool-glass production line at its facility in Gimcheon.
“We have been supplying different offerings to KCC Corp., including at the Gimcheon site, and are honored to have won their continued confidence,” said Kyo-Yung Kim, president of Air Products Korea.
Air Products will install a Prism vacuum swing adsorption oxygen generator at the Gimcheon site to supply on-site gaseous oxygen to the furnace for full oxy-fuel combustion, which is an advanced technology used to make glass manufacturing cleaner and more eco-friendly.
