Who’s Affected?


Does your company purchase gasses from Praxair? Were you locked into a contract and then subjected to unexpected price increases?

Praxair, a company that sells and delivers industrial gasses, may be charging customers unexpected price increases or unlawful fees.

A subsidiary of Praxair has faced a pricing class action lawsuit which alleges contract violations, unfair price increases, and deceptive fuel surcharges.

Praxair may be engaging in similar practices, which means that Praxair customers may be paying significantly more than what they were originally quoted due to unexpected fees.

If you are a Praxair customer and you are paying more for services than you were quoted, you may qualify to join a FREE Praxair deceptive pricing class action lawsuit investigation.

Praxair Unexpected Fees

Praxair is a company that provides industrial gasses to a variety of industries, including pure gases, mixtures, and other products such as acetylene, helium, nitrogen, argon, hydrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, krypton, xenon, neon, dry ice, and more.

There are a number of industries that use Praxair products including:

  • 3D printing
  • aerospace
  • automotive
  • chemical manufacturers
  • electronics
  • food/beverage
  • glass
  • healthcare
  • labs
  • metals
  • oil
  • pharmaceuticals
  • paper
  • others

Unfortunately, businesses in these industries who source gas from Praxair may be paying unexpected charges and fees which place the actual price much higher than the price originally quoted by the company.

In addition, businesses may be locked into contracts based on a pre-agreed price, only to have prices increase due to undisclosed surcharges and fees.

Praxair Subsidiary Class Action Lawsuit

In April 2019, a class action lawsuit was filed against NuCO2, a beverage carbonation company and Praxair subsidiary. According to the class action, NuCO2 locked consumers into contracts and then “carried out a systematic deceptive scheme to charge its customers more than the agreed amounts.”

The company allegedly increased prices for years without giving notice of the price increases. The class action claims that NuCO2 charges businesses up to 30 percent more each month over the standard six year contract term than what is initially represented and agreed.

NuCO2 also allegedly uses a fraudulent fuel surcharge to charge more to businesses. According to the Praxair subsidiary class action, these charges have “absolutely no relation” to the price of fuel or energy. Instead, these surcharges are used as a hidden price increase.

Other Praxair subsidiaries have reportedly faced similar claims for decades. In 1996, Praxair subsidiary CBI Industries agreed to pay $23 million to resolve unfair pricing claims. According to the Chicago Tribune, plaintiffs in the CBI class action claimed that the company utilized unfair pricing schemes to overcharge businesses between 1968 and 1992.
