Air Products' PRISM® Hydrogen Generator and Cryogenic Hydrogen Compressor Among Technologies to be Featured at the CHEM SHOW

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. - Air Products (NYSE: APD) will feature its newest technologies that can help a variety of industries increase quality and efficiency, improve safety and lower overall operating costs at the CHEM SHOW in New York City from November 1-3. Visit for a short preview.

Among Air Products' featured offerings are:

- The PRISM® Hydrogen Generator for cost-effective and reliable on-site
generation of volumes from 2,000 scfh up to more than 10,000 scfh. Based
on advanced proprietary technology, PRISM hydrogen generators are the
most efficient generators on the market today, having the highest turn
down and consuming the least amount of natural gas. These generators
provide a consistent supply of high-purity hydrogen for a wide variety
of applications not only in chemical processing, but also in metals
treatment, steel, glass, photovoltaic, food, power generation and
hydrogen fueling industries.

- The Cryogenic Hydrogen Compressor (CHC), which is a proprietary liquid
hydrogen supply system that instantly matches changing production needs,
resulting in reduced operating costs and minimum downtime. Designed for
industrial producers requiring high-pressure hydrogen, such as chemical
and refinery manufacturers, the unique CHC technology is load-following,
which means its output closely matches process demand patterns. While
running continuously, the system supplies the flow rate needed by the
process at any given time, helping to minimize vent losses in the system
and making the technology more efficient than traditional liquid
hydrogen pumps.

- The PolarFit(TM) Ultra-Fine-Grinding Mill for cost-effective reduction
of hard-to-grind materials to smaller particle sizes than can be
achieved with conventional impact mills. This unique grinding system
uses a combination of size reduction mechanisms -- including impact,
attrition and particle-particle collision -- to generate consistent
yields of particles between 45 and 240 microns, and in some cases as
small as 10 microns. The mill is ideal for cryogenic size reduction of a
wide range of materials, including pigments, plastics, powder coatings,
thermoplastic elastomers, waxes, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, spices
and other food products.

Air Products also will share "Best Practices in Nitrogen Blanketing for Safety and Quality" at 10:40 a.m. on Thursday, November 3, as part of the AIChE Northeast Regional Conference session on Process Plant Safety.

"As a chemical industry leader in both safety and cryogenic applications, Air Products works closely with customers to understand their specific operations and applications," said Nancy Easterbrook, applications manager for the Chemical Processing and Pharmaceutical industries at Air Products. "This enables us to help our customers implement a nitrogen blanketing system that meets their safety and quality requirements while minimizing their capital costs and operating expenses."

In addition, Air Products will present "Hydrogen: Innovative Solutions" at the Exhibitor Product Technology Theater (900 Aisle) on Wednesday, November 2, at 1:00 p.m. As the world's leading hydrogen supplier, Air Products has the hydrogen supply and technology solutions to meet the needs of a number of industries such as electronics, foods, glass, chemicals, refining and more.
