Linde announces ‘state-of-the-art’ facility to increase high-purity gas supply to Samsung

Industrial gas major Linde will expand the capacity of its on-site facility in Tangjeong, South Korea, to increase its supply of high-purity industrial gases to Samsung Display (Samsung).

The announcement comes after Samsung revealed multi-billion-dollar plans to convert its existing LCD production line to OLED, in response to growing global market demand for products such as smartphones, virtual reality headsets and laptops.

The expansion will see Linde build a new ‘state-of-the-art’ SPECTRA plant to produce more than 2,000 tonnes per day of high-purity nitrogen to be used for cooling and purging applications in Samsung’s manufacturing process.

According to Linde, its SPECTRA N on-site nitrogen generators allow companies to scale capacity from 6,000 to 50,000 Nm3 (normal cubic metres) per hour.

“The benefits of a SPECTRA nitrogen generator include: Ultra-pure gaseous and liquid nitrogen with less than one part per billion (ppb) impurities without the need for an external purifier,” stated the company.
