Praxair Industrial Gases for Efficiency in the Energy Industry

Powering the world forward

Everywhere you look, Praxair gases and applications are hard at work powering the industries that support our everyday lives. From supplying hydrogen that powers cars, buses and forklifts, and cryogenic liquid nitrogen for the liquefaction of natural gas,  to building and operating world-class oxygen supply units for gasification, and aiding in the production of the next generation of biofuels, we are delivering more value to our customers with the lower total cost of ownership.  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, provide backup systems for peak demand, and technologies that reduce emissions and improve efficiency, to power a cleaner future.

Praxair Industrial Applications for the Energy Industry

Oxygen-Enhanced Combustion

Our patented Oxygen-Enhanced Combustion applications can help lower NOx emissions in your industrial boilers, furnaces and fired heaters by up to 70%. 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.

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

Utilizing the heat removing properties of cryogenic liquid nitrogen, Praxair systems convert natural gas to LNG. Availability of Liquefied Natural Gas provides an economic fuel alternative to remote land-based and marine use points

Nitrogen Stripping

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.

Direct Oxygen Injection

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.

VOC Treatment & Recovery

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.

Oxygen for Gasification

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.

Hydrogen for Fuel Cells

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.

Industrial services for the energy industry

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.
