DANBURY, US: Praxair Inc (PX) announced the start-up of a new air separation plant, to supply 700 tonnes per day of nitrogen to Samsung’s display manufacturing complex in Tangjeong, South Korea.

Samsung’s Tangjeong complex, the world’s first and largest sixth-generation flexible organic light emitting diodes (OLED) panel plant, is expanding to meet increasing demand for future generations of displays.

OLEDs are used in a variety of products including televisions, mobile devices, digital cameras, virtual reality headsets and laptops. Praxair’s nitrogen is being used for cooling and purging applications in Samsung’s manufacturing process.

This is Praxair’s third plant supporting the facility. The company has been supplying Samsung’s display operations with nitrogen, oxygen, argon, helium and other gases since 2005, including its LCD factory in Tangjeong.

"Praxair has enjoyed a relationship with Samsung for more than 25 years and is committed to supporting their expanded production capabilities with a broad array of gases, applications technologies and customer support," said BS Sung, president of Praxair Korea.
