Air Products signed a contract with Barrick Goldstrike that extends its long-standing agreement to operate and maintain Barrick’s oxygen plant in Elko, Nevada.

Lehigh Valley/USA — In addition to running the plant, the company plans to install new oxygen plant process equipment and technology designed to help its client reduce operating costs and emissions, as well as increase gold production.

Barrick uses oxygen for temperature control in its roaster process. Employing the optimal temperature, which varies depending on ore make-up, results in a cleaner process and increased gold production.

Over the years, Air Products’ Industrial Gas Plant Support (IGPS) organization has worked with Barrick to implement numerous process improvement projects, such as molecular sieve change-outs and main air compressor services. The IGPS organization is focused on providing engineering and operating services, equipment and spare parts to customers globally.
