The Linde Group was founded in Wiesbaden in 1879, when Carl Von Linde founded the very first refrigeration machine Company.
After the success obtained by the patent of the first air liquefaction, and then the air separation plant, the Gases and Engineering divisions were established.
The Linde Group came to Italy in 1991, year of the creation of Linde Gas Italia. The company offers a wide range of compressed and liquefied gases as well as chemicals, which makes it an important and reliable partner for a huge variety of industries.
The Linde Gas Italia has many chemical production and packaging facilities throughout the world with substantial bulk storage, bulk breaking and blending capabilities.
Industrial gases are used everywhere, at all times and with many uses. Gas plays a crucial role in numerous production and processing techniques. The main industrial gas sectors are:
Food: Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) and freezing
Beverage: gases are used in different processes:
– Blanketing, purging & sparging with CO2, nitrogen (N2) and argon to prevent oxidation
– Carbonation of drinks using highest purity carbon dioxide (CO2)
– Post-mix and pre-mix dispensing with CO2 and other gas mixtures for the perfect beverage at the point of sale
– Pressurising containers/bottles with N2 to increase the strength of plastic bottles.
Oenology: gases are very important for the bottling, refreshing and reassembling processes
Aquaculture: studying and planning of aquaculture plants, containment seafood basin creation, pre-treatment water systems, oxygenation and oxygen management, animal feed automatic distribution systems and transformation and manufactory systems.
Environment: Water treatment for purification systems, counteraction of alkaline waters, cryocondensation of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
Manufactoring: Cutting, Joining and Heating processes, electric arc process, laser technologies, autogenic welding, thermal spraying.
Fine Chemical and Petrochemical: Hydrogenation and Oxidation processes, Inertization, industrial services.
Chemistry and pharmaceutical: Pharmacopoeia compliant gases, low temperature reactions
Plastic and rubber processing: Foaming, Gas Injection Moulding (GIM), Advanced temperature control, Tyre curing.
Steel and metal: Iron foundries, heat – treatment
Glass industry: Glass modelling with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and mathematical modelling (GS®), melting process
Construction & Infrastructure: Construction, Heavy Machinery, Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC), Offshore (rigs, oil & gas platforms etc), Pipelines, Wind, Wave & Tidal.
HiQ Specialty Gases: High- purity and instrumentation gases, rare and chemicals gases, gases mixture for process calibration
On-site supply system: customised supply solutions both in terms of capacity and pureness
