Hydrogen Services prevent a halt in production
ISSUE – North American refinery had a badly damaged catalytic reformer that caused production to cease.
SOLUTION – Air Products' proprietary hydrogen pumping system came to the rescue. With our unique supply capabilities, we were able to quickly meet the customer's pressure and flow requirements, enabling the refinery to quickly resume production. Our dedicated supply chain resources enabled the customer to continuously operate in excess of 90 days while the fire-damaged catalytic reformer was rebuilt. The customer's business interruption insurance covered our temporary hydrogen services that kept the refinery running.
Hydrogen Services helped chemical manufacturer increase profits
ISSUE – Chemicals manufacturer wanted to take advantage of the favorable market conditions but their on-site hydrogen reformer had a tube failure. The customer wanted to have the repairs completed internally first and chose Air Products' temporary hydrogen supply as an alternative solution.
SOLUTION – Air Products dispatched an engineer to evaluate and prepare the site in case the customer decided to proceed with the hydrogen supply. When the customer's internal repairs were unsuccessful, Air Products preliminary work allowed us to come on-site quickly and provide temporary hydrogen so chemicals production could continue. Air Products temporary hydrogen helped this customer bridge the gap between having new SMR parts fabricated, delivered, and installed and wanting to take advantage of the booming market for their product.
