Airgas, an Air Liquide company, plans to build two new air-separation units (ASUs) that increase bulk gas production in the Midwest and Northeast and complement the company’s independent supply network throughout the U.S. One ASU will be located near Minneapolis, Minn., and the other will be located in Fairless Hills, Pa. Each ASU will produce oxygen, nitrogen and argon for use in customer applications such as metal fabrication, combustion enhancement, food chilling and freezing.
Air Liquide and its U.S. subsidiary, Airgas, opened the Advanced Fabrication Center (AFC) at the Air Liquide Delaware Innovation Campus in Newark, Del. The AFC focuses on helping industrial customers adopt new manufacturing technologies and more efficient and cost-effective production processes. It will deliver a continuous flow of development projects, innovations and exploratory R&D. Air Liquide’s manufacturing expertise in welding gases and advanced fabrication processes will be on display at the center.
My colleagues and I have been in the combustion business for many years and have a wide range of experience with single-burner and multi-burner applications. What follows is some basic information concerning the maintenance and adjustment of combustion systems.
Air Products announced plans to build a new liquid hydrogen plant at its La Porte, Texas, industrial gas facility to meet increasing product demand from several markets. The facility will produce approximately 30 tons per day and will draw its hydrogen to be liquefied from Air Products’ existing Gulf Coast hydrogen pipeline system network. Once liquefied at La Porte, the hydrogen will be delivered to customers in industries including metals and electronics. The plant is scheduled to be on-stream in 2021.
This article discusses how the unique capabilities of two new burners helped SDI La Farga increase productivity, decrease specific fuel consumption and significantly reduce burner maintenance time in its secondary copper-melting furnace.
