Mahler IGS, a subsidiary of Innovative Gas Systems Inc., headquartered in Malvern, Pa., has been awarded a contract from a Bulgarian manufacturer of copper and copper alloy products for the delivery of an EXO protective gas plant. The plant will be used for generating a protective gas atmosphere for the process of continuous casting. Mahler IGS also delivered a very similar plant with the same capacity (40 Nm3/h) to this company in 1998. The design of the new plant will contain improvements that are based on the operation experience gained on site in Greece. Mahler IGS is a manufacturer of on-site generation systems for industrial gases (hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen) as well as plants for the purification and recovery of technical gases and process waste gases.
