At Praxair you'll join 27,000 talented and diverse people in more than 50 countries, all working hard to make a difference in the world.
We’re working towards a single vision at Praxair: to be the best performing industrial gases company in the world — as determined by our customers, employees, shareholders, suppliers and the communities in which we operate.
It’s not just about the chemical. It’s about the reaction — the combination of independent things to create something new and innovative. At Praxair, this is exactly how we work with the chemical companies we serve. We don’t just sell gases to you, we work with you to develop new ways to improve your process, meet your environmental goals and lower your production costs. We have the expertise and experience to develop, implement and operate highly reliable and efficient supply systems. And we provide the industrial gases, services, and applications that help you advance the production of your chemicals.
Carbon dioxide is used as a raw material in organic and inorganic chemical production and can replace hazardous solvents in chemical synthesis and separation processes.
Carbon monoxide is one of the fundamental building blocks for a range of major industrial chemicals such as methanol, acetic acid, isocyanates, oxo alcohols and a host of other important chemicals.
Because it remains a gas at extremely low temperatures, helium is used to detect leaks in chemical processes and cool analytical equipment.
In the chemical sector, hydrogen is primarily used to manufacture ammonia and methanol, but is also vital in the making of a wide range of other key products including aniline, cyclohexane and a range of non-edible oils, plastics, and insulation materials.
Used as a pressurizing gas, nitrogen can help propel liquids through pipelines. It is also used to shield oxygen-sensitive materials from the air.
In its purest form, oxygen is used to produce many important chemicals such as ethylene oxide and titanium dioxide. It is also used to increase the production capacity and efficiency of oxidation processes.
Our Direct Oxygen Injection process is a low-cost solution for on-demand capacity increase. By directly injecting oxygen into the reactor, you can increase production by up to 20%.
Introducing even the smallest amount of oxygen into your combustion processes can balance the competing demands between your productivity and environmental goals. A cost-effective industrial application, our oxygen-enhanced combustion is a great alternative to debottlenecking and incremental capacity projects.
If you require low temperatures or rapid cooling, our direct contact, indirect contact and injection cooling systems might be the key to unlocking increased productivity.
Purify your process fluids with our nitrogen stripping systems and applications. Together we can tailor an industrial solution that will meet your purity requirements.
Our Laminar Barrier Inerting (LBI) technology applies a layer of gaseous nitrogen during the thermoforming process to help you produce molded parts and plastic films with higher surface quality and reduced scrap rates.
Remove and recover Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) from gaseous process streams. Condensing VOCs will help you recover valuable compounds and meet stringent environmental regulations.
We do more than provide industrial gases, supply systems and applications to the chemical industry. We work with you to optimize every step of your process. From consultation to implementation and use, we offer a range of industrial services that help you monitor and manage your gas supply and improve your processes.
