Knowledge base: Hydrogen Generating Plant

Angstrom Advanced is the leading supplier of Hydrogen Generators for refinery, petrochemical and other industrial applications. Our services for Hydrogen Generating Plant projects typically include conceptual design, detailed engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction, start-up and operational training. We provide a lump-sum, turnkey solution, handling everything from concept to start-up with our own resources whenever possible.

Important Factors

All the factors below plays a decisive role when considering a purchase of on-site source of gas generation:

  • Purity Considerations: It depends on the nature of industry. For example, an industry that can tolerate purity of 90-95% PSA is a preferred option.
  • Consumption and Volume pattern: The flow rate and usage pattern plays a vital part. For e.g. for nitrogen separation which can take a start up time upto several days, an on site Nitrogen generator can prove expensive in batch operations. Ideally non-cryogenic sources are ideal for lower flow rates (100-100,000 SCFH).
  • Expansion needs: We need to look at the future plans and expansion needs. Out of PSA, Cryogenic or Membrane separation the last one is easy to adapt but can prove expensive for high volume.
  • Cost of electricity: For areas where cost of electricity is high the process of on site gas generation can prove costly than having it delivered through cryogenic medium.
  • Other Costs: This can include back up system of gas generation and pressure flow as higher pressure from a large compressor means higher costs.
