In increasingly competitive markets, professionals in the gas, superconductivity, electronics and chemical industries have to respond to growing demands for performance, precision, and reliability to remain competitive. Air Liquide supports them by offering its expertise and its cutting edge technologies so they can maintain the advantage in their field. For instance, we helped build the world’s largest helium liquefaction plant in Qatar, link the longest superconducting cable to the power grid in the United States, and design the first connected gas cabinet.
HELIAL helium liquefiers are a turnkey cryogenic solution for applications in superconductivity, nanotechnologies, biology, quantum physics, the characterization of materials, and space exploration. The central element of the HELIAL is made up of turbines based on our static gas-bearing turbine technology, which can reach speeds of 300,000 revs/min.
Depending on the application – which include the reduction of synchrotrons' electrical fields, particle accelerators, nuclear fusion reactors, cooling superconductive cables, and space simulation chambers – Air Liquide's 80K cryo-freezers are made to measure and based on a variety of technologies (Brayton, Claude, etc.).
Air Liquide's Turbo-Brayton technology is used both for refrigeration as well as for gas liquefaction. If your processes require reliability and energy efficiency, this technology will meet your needs. The primary innovation behind the Turbo-Brayton technology is the assembly of an integrated unit that includes the entire refrigeration cycle and requires zero maintenance.
Microelectronics requiring extreme purity tolerate less than 1 ppb of impurity (0.0000001%) in its process and carrier gases. For this industry, ULTRALTM, Air Liquide’s line of cryogenic purifiers, has been designed to purify helium, hydrogen, nitrogen or argon by reversible cryogenic trapping on a high performance adsorbent bed.
Bulk supply, high precision mixtures, and continuous supply of process gas: Air Liquide’s automated gas cabinets safely transport gases to industrial production facilities. Recently, we designed a connected gas cabinet that can be controlled from a smartphone or a tablet. A first in the sector!
Air Liquide’s ALASKA™ cooling unit for chemical reactions works on a simple premise based on the circulation of a liquid coolant cooled by liquid nitrogen or heated by steam.
The various ALASKA™ product lines are environmentally friendly and don’t use CFC.
Our experts listen to your needs and support you at each step in your project, supplying the most appropriate technology bricks.
The manufacture of our cooling units, liquefactor, and purifiers has been standardized in order to promote industrial processes and control costs.
The first, the biggest, and the most powerful in the world: for every challenge, a solution. Passionate, we are ready to tackle every challenge.
