INDUSTRIAL GAS SUPPLY & SERVICES FOR THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY

Creating a positive reaction

It’s not just about the chemical. It’s about the reaction — the combination of independent things to create something new and innovative. At Praxair, this is exactly how we work with the chemical companies we serve. We don’t just sell gases to you, we work with you to develop new ways to improve your process, meet your environmental goals and lower your production costs. We have the expertise and experience to develop, implement and operate highly reliable and efficient supply systems. And we provide the industrial gases, services, and applications that help you advance the production of your chemicals.

 

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS FOR THE CHEMICAL INDUSTRY

Carbonate Source

Carbon dioxide is an essential component in several chemical production processes. For example, the production of magnesium carbonate (MgCO3) and calcium carbonate (CaCO3) rely on carbon dioxide (CO2) as a carbonate source. Pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food (infant formula and food) and other industrial applications (plastics, paper) require high volumes of CaCO3 and MgCO3. To meet the requirements of these customers, manufacturers of carbonates need a large and reliable carbon dioxide supply. As one of the European leaders in the production of liquid CO2, Praxair is the ideal industrial partner.

Inerting

Praxair designs, installs and supports innovative inerting systems using inert gases for fire and explosion prevention.

Depending on the specific requirements of the client and industry (cement, power plant, coal, grain), Praxair offers solutions based on proprietary, proven reliable technology. Praxair delivers comprehensive service from the study of the risks to the installation of anti-explosion protection systems and supply of the inert gases necessary for the systems to function. With more than 450 references worldwide, Praxair’s inerting expertise has the solution to meet your safety needs.

Reactor Cooling

Sometimes, having control over your chemical manufacturing process is all about finding the right temperature. If you have a need for efficient heat transfer and very low-temperature cooling in your chemical processes, we have the CO2 solution to suite your specific needs.  Direct injection reactor cooling systems can be used for a wide range of applications including cooling fluids in reactors, crystallizers, lyophilizers, storage vessels and other process equipment. All of our reactor cooling systems are specialized to meet your unique needs for chemical manufacturing, and our dedicated staff will work with you to find the system that provides the optimum results for your business. 

industrial services for the chemical industry

We do more than provide industrial gases, supply systems and applications to the chemical industry. We work with you to optimize every step of your process. From consultation to implementation and use, we offer a range of industrial services that help you monitor and manage your gas supply and improve your processes.
