LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., July 28, 2014

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Air Products (NYSE: APD)
understands that a reliable, uninterrupted supply of medical oxygen is vital
to any healthcare facility. This understanding has driven the company to
technical innovations that not only improve the efficiency of its oxygen
supply systems, but also optimize gas use. Air Products will highlight these
systems—including systems for emergency oxygen supply and high efficiency
systems that reduce oxygen loss—from August 4-5 at the 51^st ASHE Annual
Conference & Technical Exhibition in Chicago.

ASHE attendees are invited to stop by Air Products' booth 812 to speak with a
representative about the reassurance they can gain from having additional
on-site oxygen storage with a minimum 24-hour emergency supply. The company's
emergency supply systems can provide an instantaneous supply of oxygen for a
variety of unexpected situations, such as an oxygen line failure, an
unforeseen disaster, or unusual spikes in demand. Air Products' oxygen supply
systems are supported by the company's proprietary software and remote
TELALERT^® telemetry system, which helps facilitate forecasting and scheduling
product deliveries. The company also offers a number of additional services,
such as testing, repairs, preventative maintenance, gas audits, engineering,
and turnkey installations.

Air Products has also developed a new patent pending technology for its
medical liquid oxygen supply systems that can reduce the loss of normally
vented oxygen by as much as 30 percent. The company's high efficiency supply
system first pulls oxygen in the form of a gas, rather than a liquid, to
eliminate a rise in the tank's pressure, thereby reducing the product loss by
venting that would otherwise result. Depending on volume requirements, Air
Products' high efficiency supply systems can work with many medical or
industrial gases applications that employ batch/intermittent usage or
start-and-stop consumption.

Air Products has been a leading supplier of medical gases in North America
since 1947. The company provides a variety of safe and reliable delivery
options to match each customer's requirements. For small-volume users, Air
Products offers its CryoEase^® microbulk solutions, which eliminate the hassle
of cylinder handling and change-out. For large-volume customers, the company
provides traditional bulk liquid and gas supply. For more information, call
