Using oxygen to melt stone
A global family enterprise operating in the construction sector, the German Knauf Group has become a byword in the field of dry construction and insulation. During the modernisation of the Serbian mineral wool production plants, a new cupola was constructed to serve as a melting furnace. Mineral wool is made from stone melted at a temperature of approximately 1,500°C. To obtain these temperatures, the furnace is blasted with oxygen-enriched air. Messer’s Serbian branch serves as Knauf’s reliable partner in all matters relating to technical gases.
