Chemical giant Air Products and Chemicals (APD - Free Report) announced that it will showcase its wide range of advanced liquid nitrogen (LIN) technologies at INTERPHEX 2013 in New York from Apr 23 to Apr 25. The LIN technologies provide a wide range of solutions to the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries by providing an economical and simple way of cooling for a variety of manufacturing processes.
Some of the products that Air Products will highlight at the show are:
PolarFit reaction cooling systems, which uses the cooling power of liquid nitrogen to provide fast, precise, flexible, and low-cost way of regulating temperatures for advanced synthesis reactions.
PolarFit process cooling systems that use the ultracold properties of liquid nitrogen to help solve heat removal challenges and optimize productivity and quality.
Cryogenic cooling technology for lyophilization which provides better performance and reliability with a lesser capital investment compared to mechanical systems.
The Cryo-Condap system that removes volatile organic compounds from gas streams. CryoCondap works in direct contact with liquid nitrogen to cool the solvent-laden gas stream.
PolarFit grinding systems ultra-fine-grinding mill that provides a cost effective way to reduce hard-to-grind materials to smaller particle sizes than can be achieved with conventional impact mills.
Air Products will also feature its full range of industrial gases to meet its customer’s requirements. Air Products’ CryoEase microbulk solution is for those who use smaller volumes and the solution provides an alternative to cylinder supply that eliminates the hassle of cylinder handling. For larger volume customers, Air Products provides traditional bulk liquid and gas supply, as well as PRISM on-site gas generation systems.
Air Products supplies a unique portfolio of atmospheric gases, process and specialty gases, performance materials, equipment and services. Through its Air Products Express Services, the company provides a fast and flexible option for short-term or emergency gas supply.
