LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., May 14, 2013

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE:APD) will
feature a range of industrial gas-based technologies and process improvement
solutions that can help powder and bulk solids processors operate more
efficiently and cost effectively at PBE 2013 in Columbus, Ohio, from
May22-23.

As a leading industrial gas supplier and cryogenic solutions provider, Air
Products' technical specialists can work with powder and bulk solids
processors to help identify ways to more efficiently handle a variety of
materials in many processes -- from grinding to dust collection. The company
offers advanced cryogenic solutions for a range of applications including size
reduction and process cooling, as well as common gases applications support
for inerting/blanketing, gas assist molding, and more.

PBE attendees can stop by Air Products booth 628 to learn more about the
company's industrial gas-based technologies for the powder and bulk solids
market, including the PolarFit^® ultra-fine-grinding mill. Using the cooling
power of liquid nitrogen and a combination of size reduction mechanisms, this
unique mill can achieve finer and more uniform particles than other mills on
the market today. With a production-scale trial lab located in Allentown, Pa.,
Air Products can test the product of a powder or bulk solids manufacturer to
help determine the feasibility of using cryogenics in their process and help
quantify the benefits versus cost.

Air Products will also highlight its full line of industrial gases, which the
company provides in a variety of delivery options to match each customer's
specific requirements. For small volume users, the company's CryoEase^®
microbulk solution offers an alternative to cylinder supply that eliminates
the hassle of cylinder handling. For larger volume customers, Air Products
provides traditional bulk liquid and gas supply, as well as PRISM^® on-site
gas generation systems.
