LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Air Products (NYSE:APD) has
introduced its new GASGUARD® AP11 controller for specialty gas delivery
systems. To develop the AP11, Air Products combined customer feedback, the
real world experiences of our on-site MEGASYS^®total gas and chemical
management teams, and millions of operating hours at sites around the world to
provide next generation control technology for our specialty gas equipment

The new AP11 controller features a 10.4-inch color touch screen with faster
screen updates thanks to the utilization of a high-speed microprocessor.
Additional benefits include uninterrupted gas supply while the controller is
in service, simplified troubleshooting by using smart indicators, and focus on
reliability in the design and testing process.

"We are excited about the introduction of the AP11 controller," said Arifin
Budihardjo, GASGUARD^® offering manager for Air Products. "The AP11 controller
offers our customers enhanced uptime, simplified troubleshooting, and
increased controller reliability."

As part of its development, the AP11 controller went through a Highly
Accelerated Life Test (HALT) to ensure reliable performance. The AP11
controller is the same size as the previous GASGUARD controllers, which makes
for an easy retrofit to extend the life of existing, installed units. The unit
is available with optional dual power supply for redundancy.
