Hydrogen today plays a very important role in various industrial applications. Purity of hydrogen, reliability of supply and ease of use are primary considerations when it comes to choosing among the various options of supply.

In the past the hydrogen gas plants were considered to be an asset of those who have the technical expertise to operate and maintain the plant. A number of statutory guidelines to be followed and required licenses made Hydrogen plants less attractive to the user and thus made the cylinder usage popular. This continues to be case in India, wherein many customers remain skeptical about installing their own On-site Hydrogen plant.

With advancements in technology of hydrogen production through water electrolysis using Proton Exchange Membrane (a Non-Alkaline and very safe technology used by NASA, power plants, heat treatment industry, etc.) has made it very convenient to own a Hydrogen Generation system and run it conveniently, effectively and allows them to achieve the desired accuracy of parameters.

Proton OnSite (USA) and MVS Engineering supply Hydrogen Generators using PEM technology.

PEM technology uses a Solid Polymer Electrolyte (SPE) membrane and thus it works as an electrolyte which facilitates the process of electrolysis and also works as a membrane which separates the oxygen and hydrogen. This is very safe system due to differential pressure design wherein Oxygen, produced at low pressure, cannot mix with Hydrogen, which is at high pressure.

Thus, Proton Hydrogen Generators can be easily installed in any industry where purity , dewpoint and reliability of supply are important. There are several smaller, bench-top models also, that cater to the needs of lab requirements (forensic , environmental, pharmaceuticals etc.).

With the advent of PEM technology, customers are increasingly forgoing their cylinder supply in favor of Proton?s compact On-Site Hydrogen Generators. Among many reasons why customers are choosing this, some are:

  • Economy
  • Ease of usage
  • Reliable supply
  • Conformity to required parameters of gas
  • Safety
  • Peace of mind

There are number of critical applications of hydrogen where the above stated parameters play a vital role in the decision making process for choosing a medium of supply and some of these are:

  • Gas Chromatography
  • Annealing
  • Sintering
  • Metal coating
  • Reduction of metals. Etc.

Technological advancements in the process of On-Site Hydrogen generation is leading to a shift in the psychological paradigm and is replacing Hydrogen cylinder quite rapidly.
