About Universal Industrial Gases, Inc.
 and Universal Cryo Gas, LLC

Sam Piazza, president and CEO, talks about what makes UIG unique among industrial gas companies.  

Universal Industrial Gases (UIG) is a USA-based, world-wide supplier of industrial gases production equipment plus related engineering, installation and startup services. UIG-supplied air separation plants produce nitrogen, oxygen and argon as gases and liquids.

Universal Cryo Gas (UCG) is the owner and operator of on-site production plants which supply on-site-produced nitrogen, oxygen and argon to North American industrial gas products users. 

UCG serves users which can benefit from having a dedicated production unit on their site, but which prefer to purchase their oxygen and nitrogen needs as pipeline-delivered products instead of operating and maintaining an industrial gas production plant of their own.    

Sam Piazza, President

UIG and UCG provide industrial gases supply solutions which support processes used in a wide range of industries.
  These industries include steelmaking, metals manufacturing, metals fabrication, refining, chemicals, energy exploration and production, electronics, food and beverage processing, rubber, plastics, glass,  and pulp and paper. We provide plants and services to industrial end users and to other industrial gas companies.  

Our home office is located in the north-east United States, in eastern Pennsylvania; a little more than a one hour drive west from New York City or north from Philadelphia. UIG serves customers throughout the world. 
 
UIG and UCG focus on "middle market" industrial gas users 

"Middle Market" customers are users which have product demands large enough to make on-site gas production more economically attractive than vaporization of bulk liquid products.  Typical UCG and UIG atmospheric gases customers require between 40 to 700 tons per day of nitrogen and/ or oxygen. 

  • Oxygen and nitrogen users at the lower end of this production range can typically save hundreds of thousands of dollars a year versus continuing to purchase costly and volatile-priced liquid nitrogen or oxygen. 

  • Industrial gases users requiring hundreds of tons per day of product will find that UIG and UCG are able to offer supply solutions which are attractively priced and contain more customer-friendly commercial terms than are typically available from alternative onsite gas producers / suppliers. 

 

UIG and UCG offers alternatives

We want to earn your business by offering on-site industrial gases supply arrangements that meet your needs in a cost-effective and reliable manner.   

We want to keep your business by providing responsive, customer-friendly service. 

We offer two approaches to on-site gas production: 

  • UIG sells plants to companies which would like to produce nitrogen, oxygen, or other products. 

  • UCG builds, owns and operates supply systems at customer sites which supply industrial gas products to the user in a utility-like fashion. 

UIG and UCG will work with you to analyze the alternatives so that you can choose the approach which best meets your needs and preferences.  With UIG and UCG, you have choices. 

Option 1: Own a plant to produce your industrial gas needs

  Many industrial gases users can reduce their sourcing costs significantly by purchasing a UIG gas production unit and integrating it with their current operations and maintenance functions instead of relying on one of the major industrial gas companies to produce gases for them or using vaporized bulk liquid products as their sole source of required industrial gases. UIG supplies equipment to produce oxygen, nitrogen and argon in gas and/or liquid form.  We supply new and used gas and liquid plants, storage tanks, vaporizers and other plant components.  

UIG offers a growing variety of new plants; all of which are designed to provide cost effective, reliable, operationally flexible production options to "middle volume" gas customers. 

UIG-supplied plants can be provided with any required degree of pre-startup support, up to full "turnkey" installation (complete installation by UIG). UIG also provides post-startup plant operations and maintenance support, customized to optimally supplement owner-operator in-house capabilities and resources.    

In addition to designing and supplying new plants, UIG is often able to offer refurbished and upgraded used production plant options. When there is a good match between user needs and available equipment, fully-engineered combinations of new and reconditioned components can provide excellent performance coupled with lower installed cost and faster delivery than all-new plants.  

Option 2: Have UCG supply your needs from a plant at your site  

.Universal Cryo Gas, on-site plant operator, onsite gas supplier   Universal Cryo Gas (UCG) will operate and maintain a production plant at your site which produces and delivers gaseous nitrogen or oxygen. 

UCG onsite gas supply arrangements provide users with cost savings and long-term price stability. Onsite supply contracts typically have initial supply periods between seven and fifteen years in length

Typical  initial year savings for UCG customers who have been vaporizing bulk liquid products, will be 20% to 40%.  In dollar terms, this is usually hundreds of thousands of dollars a year.   

If you currently purchase (or will soon need to purchase) more than a trailer load of liquid nitrogen or oxygen each day (about 25 million SCF per month or more) you should investigate UCG onsite gas supply.

We will meet your needs with the very best industrial gases supply solution 

UIG is staffed with highly experienced professionals dedicated to understanding your needs and preferences and meeting them. UIG will offer a gas and/or liquid production system that will reliably and cost effectively supply the products you need; now and into the future. 

Whether you prefer to purchase industrial gases as utility-like pipeline-delivered gas products from UCG, or purchase and operate your own UIG-supplied gas production system, our goal is to meet your needs. 

UIG supplies plants, equipment and services in most parts of the world 

We have executed projects in many countries, including the United States, Spain, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Poland, Peru, Albania, Ukraine, Turkey, India, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom and Ireland. 

We know that successful projects require viable commercial arrangements 

We will work with you to define mutually beneficial product pricing and equipment purchase arrangements.  UIG will consider, in addition to straight equipment sale or gas supply contracts, equity investments, joint ventures, equipment leases and credits for sale of a portion of the plant production to others.  UIG can help arrange short term and longer term financing and payment arrangements, including Letters of Credit and U.S. Export-Import Bank guaranteed loans for qualified overseas buyers.
