Typical Applications for P+E Hydrogen Separators:

  • Extracting h2 from a reformate stream (steam or  auto-thermal reformer) 
  • Extracting hydrogen from a process by-product stream 
  • Extracting hydrogen from bio-gas (digesters, etc.) 
  • Closed-circuit h2 recirculation systems

Design and Operation

Power+Energy Hydrogen Separators use Micro-Channel Palladium Alloy Membranes to extract hydrogen from the feed stream.  See how..

For mixed gas streams containing sulfur compounds, a sulfur-tolerant palladium alloy is used.

For some applications, customers specify the use of sweep gas, either nitrogen or steam, to boost the hydrogen recovery of the h2 separator.
