Plants & Engineering

We are global leaders in plant manufacturing supported by our expertise in industrial gases

Our air separation plants are at work worldwide

Drawing upon knowledge and experience in the manufacture of industrial gases, we've also nurtured expertise in plant manufacturing, and we are now recognized as global leaders with world-class technologies in this field. In 1935 Taiyo Nippon Sanso successfully constructed the first Japanese-made air separation plant. As Japan's top manufacturer of air separation plants, we have a spectacular track record, and have constructed many plants all over the world. Taiyo Nippon Sanso continues to tap its rich experience and advanced technologies to develop and build the world's largest class of air-separation plants as well as PSA nitrogen gas generators and CFC-free ultra-high-purity nitrogen manufacturing equipment to protect the global environment, winning critical acclaim from industries around the globe.

Providing space-simulation chambers and other devices to the frontiers of science

Space-simulation chambers used as total testing systems for satellites and onboard equipment recreate the extreme environment of space by providing ultra-high vacuums and cold, dark conditions. Taiyo Nippon Sanso manufactures a diverse variety of simulation chambers for space tests, ranging from compact chambers used in laboratories to those that are among the largest in Japan. The Company also contributes helium-liquefaction and refrigeration systems used to develop super-conducting systems for linear motor cars and nuclear fusion technologies that hold promise as energy sources. We also produce special containers to transport helium at a cryogenic temperature of minus 270 degrees Celsius, and provide cutting-edge equipment and systems for basic physics and other research.
