DANBURY — Industrial gases company Praxair has had a busy month of opening and acquiring new facilities.

The company recently opened two new air-separation plants, one being its first in the Kingdom of Bahrain, which will supply oxygen, nitrogen and argon to Middle Eastern structural steel manufacturer United Steel Co. The new plant has the capacity to produce 350 tons " /#visit_us">visit us oxygen per day, making it the largest air-separation unit in that country.

Another air-separation unit was established in Brazil by Praxair subsidiary White Martins, in the state of Mato Grosso. The unit can produce up to 220 tons of oxygen, nitrogen and argon daily. The unit will provide the gases to Eldorado Celulose e Papel’s single-line pulp mill, which will be the largest in the world. The new plant is Praxair’s fifth in the region.

Praxair also purchased Lawrenceburg, Ind.-based Tri-State Carbonic’s carbon dioxide plant, which produces bulk CO2 for industrial use in the greater Cincinnati area, particularly for food and beverage markets, fire-prevention and welding.
