Air Products recently made delivery of its 40th PRISM Hydrogen Generator, which provides economical on-site gas production for a broad range of supply requirements. The latest order, received from Biotechnological complex-ROSVA, a biorefinery for the processing of grain and production of sorbitol in Russia, involves the installation of two 250- -cubic-meters-per-hour hydrogen generators, which will be used for hydrogenation in their manufacturing process. 

Air Products’ PRISM Hydrogen Generators have the capability to supply requirements from 50 cubic meters per hour to greater than 4,500 cubic meters per hour, providing the lowest cost on-site hydrogen available in this production range. The company’s hydrogen generators have been supplied for applications in a variety of industries, including hydrogenation in chemical processing, atmospheric control in float glass, epitaxy production in electronics, annealing and galvanizing steel, and metals processing. 

“We work closely with customers to identify the needs of their individual processes so we can provide the optimal solution for hydrogen supply in that range,” said Dave Guro, global product manager for Hydrogen Generation and Purification at Air Products. “We work on applications for both large and small PRISM hydrogen plants, and by leveraging Air Products’ global sales, supply chain, and operations network, we are able to provide the most economical gas supply option for customers all around the world.” 

Air Products’ PRISM Hydrogen Generator, which combines the company’s proprietary reformer technology with its hydrogen pressure swing adsorption capabilities, is a highly packaged on-site hydrogen generation technology that allows for easy field installation and a fast start-up. Air Products’ focus on safety is embedded in the product design, and the units have the capability for full local and remote control. The company also has an experienced technical support team that works with each customer to enhance safety, help increase process efficiency, and optimize their gas usage.
