Air Liquide’s ‘preferred method’ for SA gold mining


Air Liquide, the world’s largest industrial and medical gas company, has claimed it is the leading supplier of oxygen to the South African Gold Mining Industry.

The company notes that feedback from clients suggests its dedicated oxygen systems and solutions are the ‘preferred method’ for gold recovery in South Africa. Furthermore, more gold mining companies in the country use the company’s products than others available – says Air Liquide.

“More gold mining companies in South Africa use Air Liquide’s oxygen solutions and its proven ALDOC (Air Liquide Dissolved Oxygen Control) system, than any other products available,” commented Kobus Durand, Air Liquide’s Metallurgy Manager.

“The response we’re getting is that Air Liquide’s ALDOC system is the generally preferred method of recovering gold in South Africa.
