Instrumentation and gas analysis for hydrogen

Hydrogen plays an important role in the production of cleaner energy. Various reliable measuring and analysis instruments(hydrogen gas analyzers, pressure transmitters for hydrogen,H2 flowmeters, temperature transmitters) help to improve the production process. They also reduce production costs and increase the service life of the installations.

Hydrogen H2


New generation energy system based on electricity and hydrogen. Hydrogen and electricity are convertible to each other. It is expected to establish an environmentally friendly energy cycle by using them.

Hydrogen energy characteristics:

  • Exists everywhere on earth
  • Generates water only when burnt
  • Offers great power while unlikely to spontaneously ignite
  • Serves as energy storage medium
  • Quick diffusion when wet

Hydrogen production method

Conventional technology: Steam reforming

Specifications :

Hydrocarbon and water vapor are heated in the presence of catalyst. H2 or mixture of CO and H2 are obtained. Light hydrocarbons such as methane, LPG, naphtha are used as raw materials. These materials needs to be desulfurized before use.

Conventional technology: Electrolysis

Specifications :

Electrolysis is not commonly used because hydrogen production from fossil fuel is much cheaper.

Conventional technology: Byproduct hydrogen,Steelworks and Soda industry

Specifications :

Hydrogen obtained as byproduct in manufacturing processes of steel, caustic soda, etc.

Future technologies: Coal gasification

Specifications :

Carbon injected into a furnace reacts with O2 in the air to be CO2 and/or CO, or reacts with water vapor to be CO and H2. The obtained CO goes through reaction with water vapor, it is dissolved into CO2 and H2 .

CO + H2O → CO2 + H2

Future technologies: Thermochemical conversion, biomass gasification, photolysis

Specifications :

Thermochemical: dissolves water by using heat or water vapor generated from power generation process.
Photolysis: dissolve water via catalyst and sunlight.
