March 16, 2015 Lehigh Valley, Pa.
Air Products (NYSE:APD) will feature its range of industrial gases and supply options, as well as advanced gas technologies to help plastics manufacturers increase process efficiency, reduce costs, and improve product quality and safety, at NPE 2015 in Orlando, Fla., from March 23-27.
NPE attendees can stop by booth S20174 to learn about Air Products’ broad range of industrial gases―including nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and argon―which the company offers in a variety of safe and reliable delivery options to economically match each customer’s specific requirements. For small-volume users, Air Products’ microbulk solution eliminates the hassle of cylinder handling and change-out. For large-volume customers, the company provides traditional bulk liquid and gas supply, as well as its PRISM® on-site gas generation systems.
Air Products’ technical specialists can work with plastics manufacturers to help improve efficiency and safety in many of their processes, including cryogenic grinding; process cooling; inerting/blanketing for combustible dust, flammable liquid processing, and pneumatic conveying; and gas assist molding. For plastics manufacturers considering cryogenic grinding, the company provides a number of solutions from consultative services to turn-key offerings that cover everything from design to installation of a complete cryogrinding system. Air Products has a testing lab in Allentown, Pa., where the company can run product on production-scale equipment to help plastics manufacturers determine the feasibility of using cryogenics in their processes, quantify the cost versus benefits of using cryogenics, and optimize cryogrinding operations.
In addition, Air Products offers computational modeling, safety training, and engineering and consulting services during project design, start-up, and ongoing operation. With a strong computational modeling center, the company can help plastics manufacturers improve their processes using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and other programs for the early conceptual studies of new designs, product development, scale-up, and troubleshooting. CFD can be particularly useful when designing inerting systems for combustible dust protection.
