Praxair to start new air separation unit in Peru

DANBURY, US: Praxair Peru, a subsidiary of Praxair, has started up a new air separation unit (ASU) to expand Praxair’s supply of industrial gases to one of the largest producers of zinc in the world, in Lima, Peru. The ASU will supply additional capacity to meet the demand of one of the fastest growing economies in South America.

The new plant utilizes the latest energy efficient technology and has a production capacity of approximately 300 tonne per day of oxygen, nitrogen and argon. The ASU will generate gaseous oxygen for the refinery and liquefied industrial gases to meet growing demand in the region. The plant will serve the food and beverage, metal fabrication, healthcare, and chemical segments, increasing Praxair’s production and distribution capabilities in the region.

“Praxair is providing a cost and energy-efficient plant to support customer expectations. We have built a strong commercial relationship with the customer based on our innovative approach and the efficiency and reliability of our product supply capabilities. This plant further strengthens Praxair’s strong presence in the Peruvian Coast,” said Domingos Bulus, President, White Martins, subsidiary of Praxair.
