What is it for?
It is used to refrigerate liquid air to produce oxygen. Air Liquide's extensive experience in industrial cryogenics spans from designing and constructing cryogenic equipment to the supply of liquid gases. Our experts will help you customise solutions based on your applications in any industry.
Industrial cryogenics at a glance
Cryogenics is mainly refrigeration below -180°C and gas liquefaction. This is done to modify the physical properties or maintain temperature during the process. It can also be used as an energy source to power various fuel cell vehicles and microelectronics.
Industrial cryogenics has been involved in the development of Superconductivity, Launcher propulsion, Cryogrinding, Reactor cooling, Cryogenic cleaning. Air Liquide's Advanced Business & Technologies (AB&T) provides a variety of cryogenic equipment for use in science and industry. Our custom-designed cryogenic systems are adaptable to the needs of individual customers and research projects.
These gases can be supplied in single cylinders, multi-cylinder packs or bulk volumes.
Gas used for Industrial Cryogenic
Gas Applications: Industrial Cryogenics
Deep Cryogenic TreatmentAir Liquide's ALNAT™ DCT solutions treat components by exposing them to temperatures below 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cryo-grinding & DeflashingCooling a material to low or very low temperatures with a cryogenic fluid such as liquid nitrogen or liquid carbon dioxide, to produce particles with a narrow size distribution is cryo-grinding. This technology helps process soft or heat-sensitive products by eliminating the risk of degradation.
Process coolingLiquid nitrogen controls the temperature in chemical reactors.
Process equipment cleaningWe supply dry ice pellet blasting and high-pressure nitrogen blasting equipment.
Concrete coolingCryoCrete is our proprietary solution for handling the most demanding cooling requirements and pour temperature specifications for mass concrete pours in hot weather conditions.
FreezingIndividual quick freezing (IQF) - Our IQF solutions eliminate the inconvenience of defrosting block frozen products and allow easy portioning and mixing of pre-prepared frozen products.
Cooling - chilling and freezing - Our Dry Ice+ helps keep perishables fresh and reduces cross-contamination from the surface and airborne bacteria by infusing dry ice pellets with ozone.
