Metals

Air Liquide aims to develop high value-added solutions to reduce energy consumption and to optimize the manufacturing process by the implementation of fully integrated clean technologies. Customers can be assured that our solutions are highly reliable and create substantial energy efficiencies.

Oxygen, nitrogen, and argon are required for a number of applications in the metal industry, ranging from oxygen enrichment for blast furnaces to surface protection and degasification with inert gases (nitrogen and argon).

Air Liquide India has the resources necessary to design, build and operate large oxygen units that can meet these needs. Our Air Separation Units (ASUs) are a case in point: they use our latest technologies to compress, liquefy, and distill air in order to separate it into oxygen, nitrogen, and other rare gases. Depending upon the requirement, Air Liquide India is fully equipped to supply gases in massive volumes via pipelines or onsite production units and if required in medium or small volumes via bulk liquid supply or cylinders.

Food, Pharma & Beverages

Food

We help customers produce better food quality and improve productivity by retaining strong focus on safety, hygiene and cost-efficiency.  

Cryogenics freezing and chilling bring significant advantages compared to mechanical technologies such as enhancing natural taste while minimizing dehydration. Different gases or mixtures can be used to enhance color, appearance and organoleptic characteristics to improve shelf life and protect food from bacteria or mold by using our solution of Modified atmosphere packaging.  

Creating an inert atmosphere through control of oxygen levels prevents food products from oxidizing and spoiling and helps to preserve their chemical makeup. Air Liquide India’s inerting, blanketing and sparging applications address this challenge by eliminating or minimizing contact with air, extending shelf life, and maintaining important qualities like taste, color and texture.

Advanced Business & Technologies in India

In 2010, Cryolor opened its new cryogenic equipment manufacturing plant in Chennai (formerly known as Madras), and commenced production in November 2010. Cryolor Asia Pacific is spread over an area of 40,000 square meters and is the first phase of acquisition for the manufacture of cryogenic equipments. It operates as a 100% subsidiary of Cryolor SA.

Cryolor chose to establish its operations in Chennai due to the higher quality of infrastructure in the state. The factory is strategically located on the main national highway and connected to the three major ports of Southern India. Cryolor set up the factory in order to consolidate its existing domestic base in India, where it has been the leading import brand for more than 2 decades, and to be closer to its regional customers base in Asia, America, Africa and the Middle East.

The products currently manufactured at the factory include:

  • Standard Cryogenic Tanks (Celine)
  • Engineered Cryogenic Storage Tanks (Thermosiphon tanks )
  • Mobile Equipments (Rigid Tankers)
