) has introduced the next-generation GASGUARD AP11 controller for
specialty gas delivery systems. In order to develop the AP11, Air
Products compiled a number of feedbacks such as the customer
feedback, real world experience of its on-site MEGASYS total gas
and chemical management teams and also operating hours at
different sites around the globe.

Test (HALT) to facilitate reliable performance and the controller
has the same size as previous GASGUARD controllers. This ensures
extended life to the already installed units.

touch screen with faster screen updates due to the installation
of a high speed microprocessor. The controller also provides
uninterrupted gas supply while in use, and uses smart indicators,
which provide simplified troubleshooting, and aims on reliability
in the design and testing process.

solutions are providing reliable, uninterrupted supply of oxygen
to North Carolina Specialty Hospital (NCSH). NCSH is benefiting
from the advantages of Air Products' microbulk solutions over the
conventional cylinder or dewar supply.
