Rockwell Automation Signs $4.5 Million, Five-Year Contract with Air Liquide America LP for Monitoring Equipment and Services

Contract with world’s leading supplier of industrial and medical gases covers Air Liquide America LP plants in the United States

MILWAUKEE, Feb. 11, 2003 — Rockwell Automation today announced the signing of a $4.5 million, five year contract with Air Liquide America LP, to provide condition-based monitoring equipment and services which will help reduce maintenance costs and improve uptime at its gas production facilities in the United States. Air Liquide America LP supplies oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and many other gases and services to most industries including steel, oil refining, chemicals, glass, electronics, healthcare, food processing, metallurgy, paper and aerospace.

Rockwell Automation will supply its Entek-branded vibration analysis equipment to Air Liquide America. The equipment will enable the gas supplier to remotely monitor critical machinery and equipment. Rockwell Automation monitoring technicians will help the company’s maintenance personnel analyze the information gathered, identify developing faults in equipment and correct them before they negatively affect production or safety.

Several Air Liquide America facilities operate automatically or with a single technician. The monitoring data collected at all of these facilities will now go to a single location for analysis.

“By helping Air Liquide America conduct an analysis of its equipment, as well as implement a monitoring capability across its facilities, the framework is now in place for the company to realize the benefits of increased productivity and profitability resulting from this type of predictive maintenance activity,” said Mike Laszkiewicz, vice president, Global Manufacturing Solutions, Rockwell Automation.
