Linde North America will increase production at its Delta, Ohio, air-separation plant to upgrade its supply network in the Midwest, the company said.
The company will add a 575-ton-per day nitrogen liquefier, which will capture spare molecules the plant is already producing.
The liquefier is scheduled for completion by the second quarter of 2013. It will replace existing nitrogen production from an older Linde air separation plant in the Midwest.
The Delta plant has been operating since 1997, supplying oxygen and argon by pipeline to two adjacent steel producers, and by truck to hospitals and to industrial customers such as welding shops and foundries throughout Ohio. Delta’s liquid nitrogen will be delivered by tanker truck to customers in the food processing, metals, chemicals and automotive industries.
