Hydrogen Fuel Cell & Electrolysis

Test & develop maximum-efficiency hydrogen fuel cell and electrolysis systems

Developing and testing cutting edge, scalable technology to build the hydrogen infrastructure is key to offering hydrogen fuel cell and electrolysis technology as a viable alternative to hydrocarbon combustion. Recent developments in the hydrogen economy have increased the demand for highly efficient, hydrogen-based energy production.

Hydrogen fuel cells generate energy with almost net-zero carbon production, and allow for more efficient storage and utilization of energy from other renewable sources. Using devices which are resistant to external vibrations, with Zone 2 ATEX certifications, and remote sensors and valves ensures that your flow and pressure setups are never influenced by external factors.

  • Standup interface displays let you fully control your instruments without needing to connect to a PLC, even for applications requiring fine tuning.
  • Multigas switching without corrective k-factors keeps your flow and pressure readings accurate even as environmental conditions shift and change.
  • Multivariate devices display flow and pressure together, letting you measure and control various system parameters from a single device.

Hydrogen system instrumentation  The hydrogen economy

Real-time control of H2 & O2 into electrolyzers maximizes process efficiency

Improvements in electrolysis technology are building toward full commercial viability of the hydrogen economy. Accurately controlling hydrogen and oxygen pressures ensures continuous control at the anode and the cathode.

Materials robust enough for humid, high-temperature environments

CODA Coriolis meters can precisely regulate extremely low flows of water, ensuring the electolyzer is fully optimized, even in harsh operating conditions.

DI water for electrolysis

Full control of fuel cell test bench conditions

Tight control of pressure, temperature, and flow rates ensure that you maintain the required hydrogen and oxygen ratios across the fuel cell stack.

Corrosion-resistant pressure controllers maintain exhaust line pressures, even at high temperatures and in the presence of moisture.

Leak checking minimizes metal loss in catalyst membrane layers

In larger fuel cells, multistage testing often leads to flow spikes, which in turn cause expensive metals to be lost.

Continuous pressure control, to detect even the smallest leaks, protects your materials and optimizes leak checking stations.
