Air Products Expands LNG Heat Exchanger Manufacturing in Florida
(July 26, 2012)
In September 2016 Air Products held a ceremony to celebrate the rollout of the first completed liquefied natural gas (LNG) heat exchanger manufactured at this new production facility in Manatee County, Florida. The heat exchanger was transported from the Air Products facility, crossing over Route 41 directly onto the property of Port Manatee, where it was loaded on a barge and shipped to a customer for a major liquefied natural gas project along the United States (U.S.) Gulf Coast.
In order to stay ahead of increasing demand for Air Products’ world leading liquefied natural gas (LNG) technology and equipment, the company constructed a second manufacturing facility at a new location in Manatee County, Florida. The 300,000-square foot LNG heat exchanger manufacturing facility will have ready access to port services, which will facilitate global shipping of this very large equipment and allow Air Products to manufacture even larger LNG heat exchangers that are being demanded by the market.
A majority of total worldwide LNG is produced with Air Products’ technology. The company has been manufacturing LNG heat exchangers at its Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania facility for over 45 years. Air Products has designed, manufactured, and exported 100 coil wound heat exchangers for LNG projects around the globe. This equipment can be as large as 16.5 feet (5.0 meters) in diameter, 180 feet (55 meters) long, and weigh as much as 500 tons (455 metric tons).Photos
