Air Products Creates Cryogenic Grinding Microsite

Aug. 18, 2014
Air Products created a microsite aimed at helping processors overcome particle size reduction challenges.

Air Products has created a crysogenic grinding microsite aimed at helping processors overcome the challenges of particle size reduction and optimize their overall operation. The microsite provides technical information about Air Products’ PolarFit® Cryogenic Size Reduction Solutions, which use liquid nitrogen to cool down feed material prior to and/or during milling, and includes illustrations of the company’s size reduction system configurations. Videos explain how exposing material to liquid nitrogen can help prevent melting or decomposition, or achieve embrittlement, resulting in a higher yield of particles in the desired target range, more uniform particle size distribution, higher production rates, improved product quality and enhanced process safety.

Air Products’ offerings include turnkey cryogenic grinding systems and individual components to retrofit an existing process; liquid nitrogen supply in a variety of delivery options; and value-added services, such as technical assessments/improvements of existing milling systems and optimization of liquid nitrogen use. Air Products has trial facilities located in the U.S., Europe, and Asia.
