PRAXAIR INDUSTRIAL GASES FOR AEROSPACE AND AIRCRAFT

Innovation grounded in experience 

At Praxair, we’ve been deeply involved in aerospace and aircraft development for over a century. Today, our industrial gases, services and supply systems allow our customers to meet environmental and safety standards, reduce operating costs, and most importantly, continue to push the boundaries. We support rocket launch programs that are making commercial space travel a reality. We develop wear-resistant coatings to help jet engines last longer. And we supply gases and liquids to testing facilities to make sure you get where you need to go safely. At Praxair, we work hard on the ground to help your business take off.


INDUSTRIAL GASES FOR THE AEROSPACE & AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY

Nitrogen
Essential to the aerospace & aircraft industry, nitrogen is used in high Reynolds number wind tunnels, heat treating furnaces and autoclaves to help create incredibly strong but lightweight materials. Nitrogen is also used as an assist gas for laser cutting applications.

Hydrogen
Used as fuel, industrial hydrogen fuels rockets and powers life-support systems and computers in space environments. It is also used for metal sintering and annealing.

Oxygen
Our liquid oxygen has been used in many bipropellant vehicles since the 1940's.

Argon
Argon is a versatile industrial gas used in the production of light bulbs and lasers, and in welding applications. As an inert gas, it is also commonly used in vacuum carburizing and other heat treating processes.

Helium
Helium is used as a lift gas, in both the liquid and gas form, to purge and pressurize liquid hydrogen fuel systems and detect leaks.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS FOR AEROSPACE & AIRCRAFT

Autoclave Inerting
At Praxair, we design and install customized systems to provide the high pressure, high flow rates required for autoclave inerting. Praxair provides an online survey tool and other services to evaluate your system and work toward optimizing industrial autoclave performance. Autoclave Services

Heat Treating
From annealing and brazing to sintering and carburizing, our nitrogen-based heat- treating applications are low in cost, high in productivity, and help you meet the stringent standards of the aerospace & aircraft industry.

Precise, Reproducible, Traceable Atmospheres (2.2MB)

Forging
Our proprietary Dilute Oxygen Combustion burners are used to provide even heating in critical preheating processes for the forging of exotic alloys for jet engines and other critical aerospace and aircraft parts.

INDUSTRIAL SERVICES FOR THE AEROSPACE & AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY

We do more than provide industrial gases, applications and products to the aerospace & aircraft industry. We offer high performance surface coatings that increase performance by reducing harmful effects of abrasion, oxidation, corrosion, wear and extreme heat on commercial and military aircraft engines and airframe parts and accessories for fixed-wing aircrafts and helicopters.

We also tailor our supply systems to meet your needs and improve performance. From high volume systems and high pressure pumping technology that deliver reliable supply and reduce loss, to pressure testing and cleaning services that help maintain tank and piping integrity, we help you get the most out of your supply.

At Praxair, we work with you to optimize every step of your manufacturing process. From consultation to implementation and use, we offer a range of industrial services that help you monitor and manage your gas supply so you can improve your product quality.
