The production facility is unique in Bulgaria and benefits from the German know-how. The installation operates in continuous mode with capacity of 2000 m3 gas per hour and meets the needs of many major companies in the country. The air becomes liquid via compression and its main components nitrogen, oxygen and argon are separated by cryogenic rectification, based on their different boiling temperatures.
The strategic partnerships that we have concluded with our customers, is an achievement that has been possible due to the fact that during these years we have developed advanced products and services. Linde gases such as hydrogen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and oxygen are an integral part of life, they are present everywhere, and they support technologies that keep us mobile and connected, while being indispensable in health and food processing. We play an essential role in product lifecycle, from research and design, testing and analysis to production and delivery. Industrial gases are essential components in key welding and refrigerating activities, food freezing, analysis and testing.<.p>
