News ReleaseAir Products Introduces New GASGUARD® AP11 Controller

April 02, 2013 Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Air Products (NYSE:APD) has introduced its new GASGUARD® AP11 controller for specialty gas delivery systems. To develop the AP11, Air Products combined customer feedback, the real world experiences of our on-site MEGASYS® total gas and chemical management teams, and millions of operating hours at sites around the world to provide next generation control technology for our specialty gas equipment customers.

The new AP11 controller features a 10.4-inch color touch screen with faster screen updates thanks to the utilization of a high-speed microprocessor. Additional benefits include uninterrupted gas supply while the controller is in service, simplified troubleshooting by using smart indicators, and focus on reliability in the design and testing process.

“We are excited about the introduction of the AP11 controller,” said Arifin Budihardjo, GASGUARD® offering manager for Air Products. “The AP11 controller offers our customers enhanced uptime, simplified troubleshooting, and increased controller reliability.”

As part of its development, the AP11 controller went through a Highly Accelerated Life Test (HALT) to ensure reliable performance. The AP11 controller is the same size as the previous GASGUARD controllers, which makes for an easy retrofit to extend the life of existing, installed units. The unit is available with optional dual power supply for redundancy.
