Webinar – Air Gases, Part 1

Hosted GasGlobal Management Editor, Rob Cockril, Part One with Guest Pierre Fort, R&D Director of Industrial Gas Company Lynn, Hydrogen Production and Advanced ASUs, along with Stephen B. Harrison , Novair President with Bernard Zenu, Managing Director of sbh4, and Medical Oxygen Production in the wake of the global epidemic.

Pierre Fort started a website to discuss the topic of Supplemental Foods (AM).

Calling AM a “very innovative way of manufacturing”, Fort later said he would use a digital model to create something by adding a layer of material. The technology can use a wide variety of materials and energy sources.

For the past five years, there has been a special technology that controls the show. The technology is called laser-powder bed-mixing and uses very fine metal dust and laser to create parts, ”he said.

He said the technology was ‘revolutionary’ in the way parts were made, allowing designs that would not be possible to work with other methods.

“Our components can be smarter, more efficient, simpler than some of our other applications,” he added.

“The product is fast and the supply chain is very small because you don’t have to import many different parts from all over the world. One of the main reasons for the success of additional products in the medical industry is that you can easily customize rooms.

When asked about the potential of MM in the industry as a whole and the gas business, Fort was enthusiastic, noting that by 2020 the Metal EM market is worth more than $ 8 billion.

The market is expected to reach $ 20 billion by 2025, and this is the only metal supplement market. There is also a polymer market, but the gases are not so important for the gas business.

Fort went on to say that there are many opportunities for the gas industry and that Linde wants to support its growth and industry by developing innovative solutions.

“For example, this year we will launch a new process gas with the leading medical industry. This process reduces the production of by-products when printed, while smaller products mean higher quality and faster printing. ”

I believe we need to embrace this technology to design and produce the parts we use in our plants.

By sharing perspectives on sustainability and complementary products, Fort AM is not the solution to everything and eliminates the ‘green wash’ process, and the technology offers benefits that can be used to produce goods sustainably.

“We can build simpler units and therefore use less material, less resources. We can produce smarter and better parts, which makes it more efficient and more durable.

Hydrogen production and large ASU growth

Harrison then began to discuss the worsening of hydrogen production. And coal.

As an example, the H2H Saltend project, which is designed to support the Humber Industrial Cluster decommissioning in East Yorkshire, is designed to generate 600 megawatts (MW) of hydrogen enrichment.

“To enable 600 megawatts of hydrogen production, the air conditioning unit must produce about 1,200 tons of oxygen per day, making it the largest in the UK.

Harrison also states that by producing hydrogen from natural gas, carbon dioxide (CO2) is produced. To compensate for these emissions, the focus is on ‘blue hydrogen’ production, which seeks to capture CO2 and use carbon storage and storage (CCS).

Harrison: To be eligible for the “blue” hydrogen label, the captured CO2 must be sent to the CCS program, which is permanently stored underground in natural geological forms.

He recognized that the CCS programs, although established, were not “optimal” as an integrated process and that symbolic changes were needed to increase blue hydrogen production, which meant that the entire system needed to be optimized.

Harrison also expanded on ASU’s growth, and coal and petroleum gas should be seen as a way to build hydrogen-enriched synapses.

He went on to say: “It has been used for more than 100 years to produce gasing syringes. It requires POX as a thermostat, as oxygen. The use of pure oxygen instead of air helps to properly control oxide chemistry and eliminates expensive exhaust gas-knock systems.

Extensive weathering eliminates nitrogen processing and makes CCS integration more cost-effective.

Asked about the challenges posed by ASU’s impressive growth, Harrison emphasized financial support and risk reduction, saying “increasing capital will be a major challenge for ASU investments.”

Safety strikes at the heart of industrial gases but there are natural hazards, and the challenge is to reduce them.

These points may bring some thoughts back to the tragic ASU explosion at the GTL factory in Bintulu, Malaysia in 1997.

“Meditation on these issues is a major reminder that the design and operation of ASU should be left in the hands of industrial gas experts to ensure the safe production of hydrogen for hydrogen production.

Medical oxygen and on-site production

One of the first companies to introduce Oxygen Generator as a source of medical oxygen for the supply of European hospitals to Zeno was the president of Novavi.

Access to medical oxygen has become a hot topic in the VV-19 epidemic, causing widespread disruption to the health industry. In his remarks over the past 18 months, Zeno said oxygen is available but not necessarily due to lack of transportation, logistics and hospitals.

“Now is the time to show how effective this solution is on oxygen. The technology is so advanced, it has been around for 20, 25, 30 years to save oxygen from the air. ”

PSA technology is a relatively simple technique, requiring only electricity.

“PSA can produce five to 50 cubic meters of oxygen per hour, and a maximum of 100 cubic meters per hour. This is the supply of oxygen and this is exactly what hospitals and health facilities need.

Zeno said there was no damage and that there was an environmental component in the game, and encouraged him to accept more oxygen at the site.

They did not allow any transportation during their production on the site, which means that they contributed a lot to the planet. There are no emissions due to transportation of parts of the product, which is an added benefit. ”

Zeno was asked if we are seeing a real change in the medical market since the beginning of 2020, exposing the shortcomings in the global supply of medical oxygen in the ongoing epidemic.

I think we are in a pandemic where the demand for oxygen is so high everywhere in the medical market. The amount of oxygen needed by an Indian hospital is six to eight times higher, which is very high.

We believe the solution is this method, this technology will be required in the future.

The technology could be further developed following the recent acquisition of m 26m by Novavir from the International Investment Group.

“We have big plans for the future, and we need to invest more in our production capacity,” he said.

He said each part of the system needs more investment to increase its oxygen production capacity in France and Italy.

“Oxygen generator is the heart of the system but it needs another device, it needs a compressor, a filter system, a monitoring system. It is constantly being analyzed because in our system we constantly provide methods to analyze the quality of oxygen in the user, which ensures that they have good quality oxygen.
