Air Products acquires Rotoflow

Air Products has acquired the Rotoflow turboexpander business from Baker Hughes, a GE company.

The acquisition extends Air Products’ existing industrial gas and liquefied natural gas turboexpander capabilities into growing hydrocarbon, petrochemical and energy segments.

“Air Products already provides key proprietary equipment, services and industrial gases to many existing Rotoflow customers, and we are looking forward to expanding those relationships,” said Samir J. Serhan, Air Products executive vice president.

The combination of the existing Air Products and Rotoflow turboexpander capabilities will be integrated into a new Air Products business division known as “Rotoflow, an Air Products Business.”

“We are confident Air Products will be a great home for the Rotoflow turboexpander business,” said Luca Maria Rossi, vice president product management of BHGE’s Turbomachinery & Process Solutions. BHGE will continue to supply Turboexpander units and related services, which are suitable for a variety of gas processing and other industrial applications, under the trade name of Nuovo Pignone."
