Global Increase in BF3 Demand Boosts Gas Transportation Equipment Sales
The global growth in demand for the specialty gas Boron Trifluoride (BF3) has seen FIBA Technologies Inc., the Massachusetts-based manufacturer of high pressure gas containment systems, increase its supply to the leading producers of the gas.
In one significant order, valued at $3.7m, FIBA will provide speciality chemical manufacturer Gulbrandsen with a total of 23 DOT-approved skids. Gulbrandsen, headquartered in South Carolina, USA, will use the skids to transport the BF3 gas from its Indian manufacturing plant to global export destinations.
This order signals further anticipated demand from industries including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors & electronics, agrochemicals, polymers, and plastics. To meet their customers’ rising need for BF3 the gas producers are investing in the specialist bulk transportation equipment required to deliver the gas safely from where it is produced to where it is used.
