Praxair has signed a contract to supply a cooling system dubbed NCOOL, which uses liquid nitrogen as a heat-exchange fluid, to Jiangsu Defeng Pharmaceutical & Chemical. The Chinese maker of active pharmaceutical ingredients plans to introduce a new product that it must rapidly cool in a large-volume reactor to below –30 °C. Praxair says the new application opens the pharmaceutical industry to the cryogenic cooling market.
