China community gains LIN program


Air Products has rolled out its Liquid Nitrogen (LIN) Ambassador Program in China, with the first LIN application demonstration class successfully held in December at the Dongchang Middle School in Shanghai.

This is where the company’s China headquarters is located with its world-class engineering, research and development, cryogenic equipment manufacturing, and strategic sourcing capabilities.

In a safe environment, Air Products’ LIN ambassadors demonstrated and explained to the students and teachers how LIN could be applied in daily life through six experiments: changing the properties of a racquet ball for cryogenic grinding and flowers for grinding spices; deflating balloons; freezing bananas into ‘banana hammers’ for food preservation; shrink-fitting for assembling machine elements; enhancing magnets for superconductivity and magnetic levitation applications; and making delicious ice-cream.

“Air Products is committed to supporting the communities and the LIN Ambassador Program has been one of our company’s many community outreach activities,” said Feng Yan, China vice president, government relations at Air Products. “We are glad and feel honoured to introduce this interactive educational initiative to China through which children have an opportunity to see first-hand how gas science and applications can make people’s lives better. Air Products will continue to leverage our resources and expertise and engage our employees to inspire the next generations to build a more productive, energy efficient and sustainable world.”
