Air Products recently announced it has been awarded a long-term contract by KCC Corp. to supply oxygen to the new glass wool production line at its Gimcheon, South Korea, facility. Air Products will install a PRISM® vacuum swing adsorption (VSA) oxygen generator at KCC’s Gimcheon site to supply on-site gaseous oxygen to the furnace for full oxy-fuel combustion. By maximizing efficiency and significantly reducing energy requirements, the PRISM product line reportedly provides reliable, economical and eco-friendly on-site supply solutions. The new production line is scheduled to come online in 2017.
“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. “Our longstanding relationship, as well as the latest contract with this strategic customer, demonstrates Air Products’ capabilities in supporting the growth of a leading glass maker and also the industry as a whole.”
