News ReleaseAir Products to Feature Industrial Gas-Based Technologies for the Powder and Bulk Solids Market at PBE 2013

Company’s Advanced Cryogenic Solutions Can Improve Productivity, Lower Operating Costs

May 14, 2013 Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Air Products (NYSE:APD) will feature a range of industrial gas-based technologies and process improvement solutions that can help powder and bulk solids processors operate more efficiently and cost effectively at PBE 2013 in Columbus, Ohio, from May 22-23.

As a leading industrial gas supplier and cryogenic solutions provider, Air Products’ technical specialists can work with powder and bulk solids processors to help identify ways to more efficiently handle a variety of materials in many processes―from grinding to dust collection. The company offers advanced cryogenic solutions for a range of applications including size reduction and process cooling, as well as common gases applications support for inerting/blanketing, gas assist molding, and more.

PBE attendees can stop by Air Products booth 628 to learn more about the company’s industrial gas-based technologies for the powder and bulk solids market, including the PolarFit® ultra-fine-grinding mill. Using the cooling power of liquid nitrogen and a combination of size reduction mechanisms, this unique mill can achieve finer and more uniform particles than other mills on the market today. With a production-scale trial lab located in Allentown, Pa., Air Products can test the product of a powder or bulk solids manufacturer to help determine the feasibility of using cryogenics in their process and help quantify the benefits versus cost.

Air Products will also highlight its full line of industrial gases, which the company provides in a variety of delivery options to match each customer’s specific requirements. For small volume users, the company’s CryoEase® microbulk solution offers 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.
