Linde Gases will be installing the central gas supply systems for the Università degli Studi, Salerno, Italy and Sardegna Ricerche, Sardinia, Italy at their newly built science laboratories. The systems will transport speciality gases including grades of helium, nitrogen, argon and hydrogen for chromatography and other instrumentation.

The Università degli Studi Salerno is scheduled for completion by end of 2009 and the Sardegna Ricerche by 2010. The construction of these laboratories is expected to help both organizations become centres of excellence for analytical chemistry, physics, biochemistry, medicine and natural science.

“In addition to their technology capabilities, we saw Linde as a reliable and flexible partner, and one who was willing to be open-minded in terms of ideas generation and prepared to work hand in hand with us to develop exactly the right solution” said Luca Contini, project manager, Sardegna Ricerche in a statement.

Combined, the gas installations will cost more than €1 300 000 and will consist of almost 20 km of piping made from stainless steel, the preferred choice of material when demands made on purity are high. According to the gas supplier, the systems are expected to be key reference sites for similar projects in Italy and southern Europe.
