BLUE BELL, Pennsylvania, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Selas Fluid Processing Corporation announced today that the company's Executive Board has approved a name change to Linde Engineering North America Inc., effective immediately. The company engineers, supplies and constructs air separation and synthesis gas plants as well as technology furnaces and fired process equipment for the refining, petrochemical, chemical, gas, and pharmaceutical industries.
Acquired in 1983 by Linde AG of Munich, Germany, Selas Fluid Processing Corporation became a subsidiary of Linde's Engineering Division, a leading technology partner for plant engineering and construction worldwide. In 2009, Linde Engineering's air separation, hydrogen, and synthesis gas plant product lines serving the NAFTA region were transferred to Selas Fluid Processing Corporation. That same year, Selas Fluid Processing Corporation relocated its Revamp Services Group to Houston, Texas, to better serve the company's client base in the western U.S. and Canada.
"The name change better reflects our status as a global technology, engineering, procurement, and construction firm," said Bruce Hensinger, President and CEO of Linde Engineering North America. "With this action, the resources we possess as a member of a world-leading gases and engineering company become more apparent to our customers."
The company's technology furnaces and fired process equipment will continue to be marketed under the Selas® trademark.
Hydro-Chem will continue as a division of the company, and the unit will not be subject to a name change. Hydro-Chem specializes in hydrogen and synthesis gas plant designs ranging from 0.1 to 15 MM SCFD (100 to 17,000 NCMH) capacities. Its modular plants are standardized to meet industry requirements.
Linde Process Plants Inc., with offices in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and fabrication facilities at the Port of Catoosa, Oklahoma, will continue to operate separately as a member of The Linde Group serving the natural gas, refining, petrochemical, and helium and hydrogen liquefier industries.
