In focus…Air separation technologies


At the start of this year we discovered, through In Focus… that the market was looking to save money by utilising the latest in recycling technology to conserve, capture, and re-use formerly wasted product – and thus, save money.

As revealed exclusively to gasworld last year by Italy-headquartered SIAD Macchine Impianti, while capacities may generally be ever-increasing across the globe, air separation units (ASUs) are becoming smaller and more efficient. But why?

This is to meet the ever-stronger need for comprehensiveness and flexibility in the market. From an industrial – as well as financial – standpoint, gas users want solutions in order to address production cycles with operational and economic efficiency.
