Modular air separation plants

Meeting today’s gas supply challenges in air separation. Companies considering investing in air separation units need to balance a number of factors. A reliable design offering minimal technical risk and maximum operational flexibility is essential to ensure process continuity and meet stringent safety standards. Construction logistics and implementation timeline can also be key considerations, particularly in areas that are difficult to access. In addition, plant owners face a number of financial constraints. Rapid return on investment is essential in today’s increasingly competitive economic climate. Companies must look at both capital and operating expenditure (CAPEX and OPEX) over the entire plant lifetime to ensure a realistic assessment of total cost of ownership.

Modular design for time, cost and reliability gains

Linde is one of the largest and most experienced suppliers of air separation plants and industrial gases worldwide. We have delivered over 3,000 air separation plants around the globe and operate more than 400 air separation units (ASUs) ourselves. Building on our long-standing experience in both plant engineering and operation, we have developed a portfolio of modular air separation units to meet today’s ASU challenges. These plants provide the best solution for our clients’ varied needs, offering:
- Rapid time-to-solution through extensive prefabrication and pre-testing
- Simplified on-site logistics and lower CAPEX thanks to modular design
- Fast-track equipment fabrication and delivery
- State-of-the-art technology and design for reliable operation
- Ease of maintenance for low OPEX
- Professional support services from consulting to commissioning and start-up
- High power efficiency through proprietary process development
- Peace of mind thanks to our strong focus on, and excellent track

Cryogenic air separation

Design and construction of air separation plants is part of Linde’s traditional scope of activities, which led to the establishment of Linde’s Engineering Division at the turn of the 19th century. In 1902, the start-up of the world’s first air separation plant initiated the development ...


Coil-wound heat exchangers

Coil-wound heat exchangers (CWHE) have been used in the industry since the early days, when Carl von Linde liquefied air on an industrial scale for the first time in May 1895. Until today, more than thousand coil-wound heat exchangers have been manufac-tured in Linde’s fabrication facilities. Coil-wound ...


LNG import terminals

LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) is becoming the preferred method of transport and storage of natural gas. In the LNG value chain, LNG-receiving terminals play an important role, allowing for the sourcing of LNG from all over the world and creating a new dynamic in the local natural gas market. Installations ...

Partnering with our customers. Industrial process plants are among the most complex structures that people have ever built. Worldwide, there are only a handful of companies with the detailed know-how needed to successfully deliver turnkey industrial plants. Linde Engineering is a pioneer in the development ...


Baseload LNG production in Stavanger

One of our most recent references for LNG base-load production with an annual capacity of 300,000 tons of LNG is a plant built at the Norwegian west cost near the city of Starvanger, started-up for commercial production in 2010. Thanks to Linde’s proprietary, most energy-efficient liquefaction ...


Customised air separation plants

The design, procurement, construction and operation of customised, multi-train air separation projects can present a number of challenges, particularly in remote locations. Having successfully engineered and executed most of the largest air separation complexes in the world, Linde Engineering has the ...


Aluminium plate fin heat exchangers

Vacuum brazed plate-fin heat exchangers are key components in many process plants. They can be advantageously used instead of other heat exchanger types, like tubular heat ex-changers. Especially with regard to compactness the plate-fin heat exchangers are one of the most favourable possibilities to ...


UN portable tank for helium (Helicon)

Cryogenic excellence for the efficient and secure transport of helium. One of the world’s most valuable rare gases, helium supplies are both limited and finite. As demand for this gas rises to support new electronics and medical applications, efforts to conserve it are becoming more urgent. Transport ...


State of the art nitrogen rejection technology

Around 30% less carbon dioxide (CO₂) than mineral oil products, and almost 45% less CO₂ than coal. It also releases around 90% less sulfur oxide and 80% less nitrogen (N₂) oxide than fossil fuels. In addition, advanced extraction technologies are unlocking new fossil hydrocarbon deposits all the ...
