Air Liquide America Chosen to Supply Science Applications International.
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 2, 1997--Air Liquide America Corporation announced today that Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC SAIC - http://saic.com. ) has chosen Air Liquide
Any solid, liquid, or gaseous waste materials that, if improperly managed or disposed of, may pose substantial hazards to human health and the environment. Every industrial country in the world has had problems with managing hazardous wastes. research facility.
"SAIC selected Air Liquide America's membrane technology because it meets their requirements for high purity in a low-volume operation," said Mark Frydenberg, sales representative, Great Salt Lake Region. "Furthermore, with our FLOXAL service, we can tailor our systems to meet individual customer needs."
SAIC develops treatment and handling systems for hazardous materials such as radioactive nuclear components and heavy metals heavy metals,
n.pl metallic compounds, such as aluminum, arsenic, cadmium, lead, mercury, and nickel. Exposure to these metals has been linked to immune, kidney, and neurotic disorders. . One such project is the testing and development of plasma melting systems for Department of Energy's (DOE) Idaho National Engineering Labs, where much of the DOE's nuclear energy experimentation is conducted. Plasma melting reduces the hazardous materials to as little as 1 percent of their volume, leaving a chemically stable glass-like material.
At the Idaho Falls facility, Air Liquide America installed a FLOXAL system which produces 1,300 standard cubic feet per hour of a minimum of 97 percent nitrogen as the plasma burning agent. In addition, a liquid backup system and DATAL(R) data collection and reporting software were installed to optimize SAIC's processes. DATAL software transfers data into vital information to manage inventory and optimize processes.
Air Liquide America has extensive experience in installing FLOXAL systems in hazardous waste applications. Key to SAIC's needs, Air Liquide America also has experience in providing the extensive documentation required of government contractors.
"This is an example of where the combination of an innovative product and our ability to provide services such as documentation and data collection software enabled us to meet our customer's unique needs. We worked closely with SAIC to identify the best solution to make the most of their operating systems," said Luc Doyon, region manager, Air Liquide America.
Air Liquide America is part of the Air Liquide Group, the world's largest industrial gas organization. It specializes in industrial gases such as cryogenic and non-cryogenic oxygen and nitrogen, as well as carbon dioxide carbon dioxide, chemical compound, CO2, a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that is about one and one-half times as dense as air under ordinary conditions of temperature and pressure. , argon argon (är`gŏn) [Gr.,=inert], gaseous chemical element; symbol Ar; at. no. 18; at. wt. 39.948; m.p. −189.2°C;; b.p. −185.7°C;; density 1.784 grams per liter at STP; valence 0. , acetylene acetylene (əsĕt`əlēn') or ethyne (ĕth`īn), HC≡CH, a colorless gas. It melts at −80.8°C; and boils at −84.0°C;. , hydrogen, carbon monoxide carbon monoxide, chemical compound, CO, a colorless, odorless, tasteless, extremely poisonous gas that is less dense than air under ordinary conditions. It is very slightly soluble in water and burns in air with a characteristic blue flame, producing carbon dioxide; , helium, ozone and a full line of specialty and medical gases, and associated services. Air Liquide also supplies cogenerated electricity and steam to select industrial customers. Air Liquide provides innovative solutions to improve the industrial performance of its customers and help them protect the environment. Air Liquide Group employs more than 26,000 people, working in 125 subsidiaries in more than 60 countries. In 1995, it posted sales of $6.4 billion (U.S. dollars).
