Cutting tools technology has already advanced to the new levels of metals machining – literally – cutting edge, delivering enhanced performance. Machining times have reduced and attained higher accuracy and smoother finishes.

The coating of wear resistant and chip resistant hard metals on to cutting steels and carbides require ultra pure ‘reducing atmosphere’ and ‘atmosphere blanketing’ gases – namely Hydrogen, Argon and Nitrogen.

The coating process demands ultra purity where-in Oxygen content (the enemy which spoils any metal coating) to be reduced to ppm/ppb (parts per million / billion) levels.

Interestingly, Hydrogen is demanded to be itself ultra pure. Because it is by itself responsible to convert other blanketing gases Argon and Nitrogen to ultra purity levels. Thus Hydrogen, the greatest ‘purifier’ the ‘Holy Ganga’ of the process industry must be unquestionably pure.

MVS Engineering is the most experienced company in India delivering Hydrogen, Argon and Nitrogen purification & generation equipment.

MVS Success Story:

We go way back to circa 1994-95, when a major Internationally-renowned Cutting Tools manufacturing company with facilities in Eastern India had embarked upon bringing such high quality tools production to India. They were immediately faced with the challenges of cylinder supplied Hydrogen, Nitrogen and Argon. In most cases these gases weren’t pure and also fairly moisture rich. Both the low purity and high moisture content made use of these gases very challenging. The company then found a solution partner in MVS for resolving these challenges. Subsequently, MVS engineered and supplied the following equipments:

  • High Purity Nitrogen Generator
  • Hydrogen Purification and Drying System
  • Argon Purification and Drying System

These equipments have since been operating successfully for now nearing 2-decades.

As MVS Engineering has delivered and supported a leading coated Carbide cutting tools manufacturer in India, we continue to be a major gas solution provider to this industry. We are looked upon as a reliable partner and supplier of equipment for ultra purification of Hydrogen, Argon, Nitrogen by the leading metal processing companies in India.
