- How to identify which generator is right for me?
When determining which generator will suit your operation best, the important criteria to define is the following:
- What is my minimum total gas flow rate?
- What is my minimum output pressure?
- What is the minimum level of purity required?
- What to consider when purchasing a generator? (budget, purchase cycle)
When purchasing a gas generator, one must consider
- Placement- where do I want my gas generated located?
- Power- what power is required to run the generator?
- Water supply- is DI water readily available or will I require a system?
- Ventilation- what ventilation is available at my location?
- Budget- what is my budget?
- Purchase Cycle- when do I need the gas generator?
- What are the power and water requirements for a hydrogen generator?
All electrolysis-based hydrogen generators require deionized water and electricity. Proton offers water deionizing systems for all our electrolyzer products. Power requirements range from a few hundred Watts for small electrolyzers, to > 1 MW for larger systems.
- Why on-site gas generation vs. cylinders or delivered gases?
Delivered gases and cylinders are heavy, cumbersome and often troublesome. Delivered gas supply can be irregular, causing disruptions in production. Bottled gases are also subject to fluctuating prices. If you are in a remote location, bottled gas delivery can also be very costly. On-site gas generation is a safe and cost effective solution to traditional gas supply methods.
- Is gas stored with on-site gas generation?
Proton hydrogen generators contain minimal hydrogen inventory, well below NFPA, and contain an amount far bellow safety concern in a ventilated space.
