HYDROGEN GENERATORS: main specifications
Idroenergy hydrogen generators are designed and manufactured for industrial processes and applications including the most innovative and advanced ones. Hydrogen generators produced and installed by Idroenergy worldwide are efficient and safe: all the components are built and assembled strictly observing severe norms and quality standards specified by TUV safety certifications.
TUV Italia is an independent certification and inspection agency belonging to the TÜV SÜD group created in Bavaria in 1866 and found in Italy since 1987. TUV’s Ethic Code is based on the ethical principles and values of honesty and correctness of behaviour; efficacious and efficient controlling systems; transparency; completeness and confidentiality of information; protection of competition and transparency on actions that may affect the market; equal opportunities and respect towards individuals; absence of conflict of interests.
TUV, the only institute in Europe that is able to certify this kind of products is a guarantee of safety and quality of the hydrogen generators produced by IDROENERGY. Idroenergy shares with the certifying company the mission of supplying instruments that are useful to reach a sustainable development making a jobsite safer and more efficient and therefore improving the quality of life.
Thanks to its experience and know-how acquired during several years of activity in the field of on-site hydrogen and nitrogen production, Idroenergy is a worldwide technical point of reference for sintering, gas purification, thermal treatment of metals, brazing, renewable energy, hydrogen distributors, inerting systems and on-site production of nitrogen and hydrogen.
Especially, hydrogen generators (also available on “heavy duty” formats, able to produce 20, 40 and 80 m3/h of hydrogen) are very compact and do not need large installation areas, guaranteeing simple installation and handling even on small areas.
The electrolytic cells of Idroenergy hydrogen generators can work at pressures from 4 to 12 bar (and more) without any compressing device. Thanks to the advanced technology of Idroenergy hydrogen generators, even the highest pressure levels can also be supplied for high production peaks. Idroenergy hydrogen generators are indeed suitable for high pressure and high intensity applications.
Generators producing hydrogen 24 hours a day are equipped with specific electrolytic cells (located in the machine’s structure). Such cells are made up of special components, specially designed to increase their working life and efficiency: all the electrodes are treated with coating technology, which means they are spray covered with special metallic alloys. The coating treatment assures high flexibility and reliability levels to on-site hydrogen production systems.
Large dimension hydrogen generators are designed with the exclusive Idroenergy “separation tower” technology. Each tower contains special distillation plates and a condenser is located on the top. The advantages of Idroenergy separation tower hydrogen generators are:
-a remarkable reduction of the consumption of the electrolytic solution due to the extension of the electrolyte loads that can last several years;
-an enhanced efficiency of gas production;
-the possibility to obtain thousands of continuous machine working hours.
In addition, Idroenergy offers to its customers the possibility to enjoy the benefits of its exclusive technology low and easy maintenance. Idroenergy hydrogen generators are “low and easy maintenance” since they have reduced maintenance needs and reduced spare parts replacement needs, besides, they do not need particular supervision. In addition to safety guaranteed by the constant availability and rapidity of intervention of Idroenergy technical personnel and considering the diffusion and consolidation that make the electrolytic technology a reliable system, the innovations introduced by Idroenergy in the hydrogen generator field grant to the generator system an easier and more reliable control.
For safety reasons, Idroenergy hydrogen generators do not include circulation pumps or other components installed externally. Furthermore, no live parts are left open in Idroenergy hydrogen generators and they however cannot be reached by the user. This way any health or safety risk against workers or surrounding structures is avoided.
Idroenergy hydrogen generators are equipped with PLC and ICS (Idroenergy Communication System), a last generation technology that allows establishing an interconnection via modem to make remote readings and remote control guaranteeing maximum equipment safety and allowing an optimal generator usability and monitoring, which can be done at any condition and from any station.
In a word, Idroenergy hydrogen generators are solid, safe, reliable and convenient equipment if you consider that they are able to produce hydrogen on-site for many years. Many of the hydrogen on-site production systems manufactured and installed by Idroenergy are also able to work continuously 24 hours per day 365 days a year at significant pressure levels and high production load.
Idroenergy is able to manufacture turnkey on-site hydrogen production systems. Its professional and trained personnel is able to autonomously and successfully manage design, sales, production, installation, trial, start-up, personnel training and after-sales service phases for machinery installed in Italy and worldwide.
Thanks to its after-sales service centres located in Milan, Vicenza and Livorno, Idroenergy is able to assure to the customer prompt intervention in case of problems regarding nitrogen and hydrogen generators. The competence and commitment of Idroenergy technical personnel are a guarantee of personalised solutions and prompt problem solving oriented interventions.
