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.
Everywhere you look, Praxair gases and applications are hard at work powering the industries that support our everyday lives. From supplying the hydrogen that powers cars, buses and forklifts, to building and operating world-class oxygen supply units for gasification, to aiding in the production of the next generation of biofuels and bio-based chemicals, we are delivering more value to our customers with lower total cost of ownership. Because while it's critical to meet today's energy needs, it's even more important to meet the demands of tomorrow. That’s why we continue to develop and advance industrial applications, supply systems and technologies that reduce emissions and improve efficiency, to power a cleaner future.
As an inert industrial gas, nitrogen is used as a blanketing agent to separate sensitive products and processes from air. It is also used as a purging agent in piping and equipment to prevent contamination.
Utilizing oxygen in the place of air can increase performance and capital efficiency in many industries. It is often used in boilers and process heaters, industrial fermenters and gasification processes to improve productivity.
Hydrogen is the energy source in fuel cells. It is also used in biofuel and chemical processing, and can improve utility generator-cooling performance.
Carbon dioxide is used as a reactant in several biological processes for the production of important chemical building blocks.
Our patented Oxygen-Enhanced Combustion applications can help lower NOx emissions in your industrial boilers, furnaces and fired heaters by up to 70%. And when burning high-moisture high-ash fuels, this technology can increase output to nameplate capacity, while stabilizing and improving flame performance. Regardless of the application, Praxair’s Oxygen-Enhanced Combustion is designed to help you generate cleaner power, faster.
Remove harmful dissolved gases from your process fluids with our nitrogen stripping application. Together we can tailor a system that will meet your purity requirements.
Praxair’s patented Direct Oxygen Injection technology improves oxygen transfer rates, production capacity and productivity. It also reduces foaming and flooding in your oxygen-limited aerobic fermentation and propagation reactors.
Using liquid nitrogen as an indirect refrigerant, this application can condense Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in your process streams, returning valuable products back to your business while utilizing the nitrogen for purging and blanketing operations.
With more than 100 years of experience designing, building and operating commercial air separation units, Praxair has the technology and world-class engineering talent required to deliver the most efficient, reliable and competitively-priced oxygen supply for your gasification needs.
We’ve been providing hydrogen fuel and related technical support to fuel-cell developers and vehicle fleets for over a decade. And as the technologies become even more widespread, we are even better suited to supply the hydrogen and fueling systems your facility requires.
We do more than provide industrial gases and applications to the energy industry. We will help 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 so you can focus on being as productive and efficient as possible.
