News ReleaseAir Products’ PRISM® Hydrogen Generator and Cryogenic Hydrogen Compressor Among Technologies to be Featured at the CHEM SHOW

October 19, 2011 Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Air Products (NYSE:APD) will feature its newest technologies that can help a variety of industries increase quality and efficiency, improve safety and lower overall operating costs at the CHEM SHOW in New York City from November 1-3. Visit for a short preview.

Among Air Products’ featured offerings are:

  • The PRISM® Hydrogen Generator for cost-effective and reliable on-site generation of volumes from 2,000 scfh up to more than 10,000 scfh. Based on advanced proprietary technology, PRISM hydrogen generators are the most efficient generators on the market today, having the highest turn down and consuming the least amount of natural gas. These generators provide a consistent supply of high-purity hydrogen for a wide variety of applications not only in chemical processing, but also in metals treatment, steel, glass, photovoltaic, food, power generation and hydrogen fueling industries.
  • The Cryogenic Hydrogen Compressor (CHC), which is a proprietary liquid hydrogen supply system that instantly matches changing production needs, resulting in reduced operating costs and minimum downtime. Designed for industrial producers requiring high-pressure hydrogen, such as chemical and refinery manufacturers, the unique CHC technology is load-following, which means its output closely matches process demand patterns. While running continuously, the system supplies the flow rate needed by the process at any given time, helping to minimize vent losses in the system and making the technology more efficient than traditional liquid hydrogen pumps.
  • The PolarFit™ Ultra-Fine-Grinding Mill for cost-effective reduction of hard-to-grind materials to smaller particle sizes than can be achieved with conventional impact mills. This unique grinding system uses a combination of size reduction mechanisms―including impact, attrition and particle-particle collision―to generate consistent yields of particles between 45 and 240 microns, and in some cases as small as 10 microns. The mill is ideal for cryogenic size reduction of a wide range of materials, including pigments, plastics, powder coatings, thermoplastic elastomers, waxes, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, spices and other food products.

Air Products also will share “Best Practices in Nitrogen Blanketing for Safety and Quality” at 10:40 a.m. on Thursday, November 3, as part of the AIChE Northeast Regional Conference session on Process Plant Safety.

“As a chemical industry leader in both safety and cryogenic applications, Air Products works closely with customers to understand their specific operations and applications,” said Nancy Easterbrook, applications manager for the Chemical Processing and Pharmaceutical industries at Air Products. “This enables us to help our customers implement a nitrogen blanketing system that meets their safety and quality requirements while minimizing their capital costs and operating expenses.”

In addition, Air Products will present “Hydrogen: Innovative Solutions” at the Exhibitor Product Technology Theater (900 Aisle) on Wednesday, November 2, at 1:00 p.m. As the world’s leading hydrogen supplier, Air Products has the hydrogen supply and technology solutions to meet the needs of a number of industries such as electronics, foods, glass, chemicals, refining and more.
