Linde ASU achieves significant construction milestones


Linde North America has achieved a significant construction milestone in its progress to build its newest air separation unit (ASU) in Adel, Georgia.

The main “cold box”, the heart of the plant, has now been successfully lifted into place. The cold box is so named because inside of it the incoming air temperature is lowered to cryogenic levels, where it liquefies and separates atmospheric air into the products Linde sells.

“Adding Adel to our existing network of ASUs in the U.S. Southeast is a great growth story for Linde,” said Chris Ebeling, Senior Vice-President of Sales & Marketing for Linde Americas. “We need the extra capacity to meet growing demand from new and existing customers, including food processors, glass and metals manufacturers, and healthcare providers.”

Linde began construction of the Adel, Georgia, ASU, in 2017. The plant is set to begin operating in Q1 2019, producing liquid atmospheric gases such as nitrogen (N2) and oxygen (O2), which will be trucked to customers in a variety of consumer markets.
