Praxair expands Michigan pipeline system

Praxair announced plans to build a new air separation unit (ASU) supporting its Detroit, Michigan, area pipeline system to meet the growing demand for industrial gases from customers in the region as well as rare gas customers worldwide. This expansion coincides with renewals of multiple existing pipeline customer agreements. The project will include the installation of state-of-the-art operating equipment and systems.
The new 1,650 tons per day plant will begin operations in 2017and will supply existing pipeline customers with improved efficiency and continued reliability. The plant will also produce liquid oxygen, nitrogen, argon and rare gases for use by hospitals, food processors and industrial companies supplying the automobile industry.
Praxair operates the only air separation plant and pipeline system in Michigan, including five ASUs and a hydrogen production facility located along the border of Ecorse and River Rouge. The complex supplies pipeline customers from Southwest Detroit to Dearborn as well as merchant customers throughout Eastern Michigan and Northwestern Ohio.
