(Reuters) - Industrial gas supplier Praxair Inc (PX.N) reported a higher profit for the second quarter as expansion in Asia helped boost sales and offset weak demand from Europe.

Profit rose to $445 million, or $1.49 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, from $429 million, or $1.42 per share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose 7.1 percent to $3.01 billion.
