Bicycle Manufacturing

Bicycle frame building is made by assembling pipes through a welding and/or brazing process. The most efficient and cost-effective method is that of propane/oxygen brazing.

Oxygen generators have revolutionized the way bicycle manufacturers build frames. By generating oxygen on-site, bicycle manufacturers can reduce their reliance on traditional oxygen supply methods, such as bottled or compressed oxygen. NOVAIR onsite oxygen generators offer several benefits to bicycle manufacturers, including cost savings, improved safety, and increased productivity.

Here are some of the ways onsite oxygen generators can be used in bicycle manufacturing:

  • Propane/Oxygen Brazing: Oxygen is needed to support the combustion process in propane/oxygen brazing. By generating oxygen on-site, bicycle manufacturers can ensure a steady supply of oxygen for brazing operations.
  • Annealing: Annealing is a process of heating and cooling metal to alter its properties. Oxygen can be used to support the annealing process by providing a source of heat.
  • Cutting and Welding: Oxygen is also used in cutting and welding operations. By generating oxygen on-site, manufacturers can reduce the cost of using bottled or compressed oxygen, while ensuring a steady supply of oxygen for these operations.


Worldwide leading manufacturer of on-site gas production systems, NOVAIR is the founder of the Green Oxygen concept and the vision that decentralized on-site medical oxygen production with the only low-carbon way to supply oxygen to hospitals. With over 45 years of experience manufacturing high-quality medical and industrial gas generating equipment, and with high-tech R&D centers in France, USA and Italy, NOVAIR definitively leads the world in innovative on-site gas production by adsorption systems.

Headquartered in France, NOVAIR operates in over 150 countries and has installed thousands of gas generators around the planet, supplying daily life-saving medical oxygen to hundreds of thousands of patients the world over. NOVAIR also provides industrial oxygen and nitrogen that enhances the effectiveness of scores of industries through a broad range of applications and market segments.
