Air Products: Largest single onsite ASU order ever  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Air Products (Lehigh Valley, Pa.; www.airproducts.com) has signed a long-term contract with Shaanxi Future Energy Chemical Co., and will build, own and operate the largest onsite air separation unit (ASU) order ever awarded to an industrial gas company. The facility, to be located in Yulin, Shaanxi Province, China, will include multiple ASU trains and produce 12,000 ton/d of oxygen and significant tonnage volumes of nitrogen and compressed dry air for Shaanxi’s coal chemical plant. The Air Products ASU trains are scheduled to be operational in 2014. In 2010, Air Products had announced, what at that time, was the largest single ASU on-site order ever committed to an industrial gas company. Scheduled to be operational in mid-2013 in Weinan, Shaanxi Province, China, that facility includes three ASU trains producing over 8,200 ton/d of oxygen, over 3,100 ton/d of nitrogen, and over 375 ton/d of compressed dry air, along with producing liquid products for the merchant market. The industrial gases produced by Air Products’ ASUs and supplied to Shaanxi Future Energy Chemical Company at Yulin will be used to help produce 1 million ton/yr of oil products.
