Universal Industrial Gases
 Featured Used Plants and Equipment

Universal Industrial Gases can supply a wide range of used gas and liquid plants for relocation.  Plants can be supplied as-is; but are most commonly supplied refurbished and modified for optimal operation at new conditions. 

This page is used to highlight selected examples of used air separation plants, used oxygen plants, used nitrogen plants and related equipment which are currently available for purchase from UIG.  Selected items may be included because that have recently become available, or have features which make them something other than "typical". 

The total spectrum of
used air separation plants, liquefiers, and plant components which is available for relocation is much more extensive than the items featured on this page, and is constantly changing.

If you do not find what you are seeking on this page, let us know  what you are looking for.  UIG offers both new and used plants to meet your needs with responsive engineering and field support services.

Why are used plants available for purchase?

The most common reason that used plants become available for sale and relocation is that product demand at the site where they were installed has changed significantly since their installation.

Many plants become available for relocation about nine to twelve years after installation; when the initial product supply period for an on-site production contract ends.

Sometimes a plant is offered for sale because demand has increased significantly, and a larger plant has been installed as a replacement. Sometimes the facility using the product has shut down or severely reduced operations. Whatever the circumstances, the result is a plant which is no longer needed at its current location, and which can be relocated, refurbished, upgraded and installed at a new site for less cost than a completely new plant.  

UIG typically offers used plants in refurbished condition - as a complete system which is customized and upgraded to best meet customer requirements at the new site. 

UIG fully-refurbished plants provide the new owners with an engineered combination of used and new equipment that delivers performance and reliability comparable to all-new plants, at lower cost, and comes with process guarantees and mechanical warranties.

UIG also offers site and process engineering, dismantlement, shipping, installation and commissioning services. 

For customers who prefer to purchase a plant "as-is", or wish to handle a significant portion of the required new site engineering, plant refurbishment and upgrade, shipping, installation, commissioning and startup activities themselves, UIG will provide assistance as needed to facilitate satisfactory installation at the customer's site.
