Producing and forming steel

Although the production of steel was for a long time the pillar of heavy industry, it is now in the hands of a few major producers based throughout the world. Medium and high-pressure compressors for air and gases play an essential role at steelworks. Indeed, they are used not only to produce the steel itself and alter the carbon content in the blast furnace but also to press the steel into slabs and subsequently treat them. Often essential components within the overall system, the compressors themselves must be produced to the highest quality standards and durable enough to withstand the extreme conditions of temperature and dust levels.
