Every day, vast amounts of hydrogen are used across a wide range of industries and applications. Many companies in the glass, chemicals, food and drinks, metals, electronics, photovoltaic and energy sectors rely on Linde’s long-standing experience to meet their needs in this area. With a firm focus on concrete customer requirements, our experts work tirelessly to develop optimised solutions for the sustainable production of hydrogen.
Simple and compact
Steam-reforming natural gas is currently the most cost-effective method of producing hydrogen. This proven technology is also at the heart of Linde’s HYDROPRIME® product. Linde successfully launched this new line of fully modularised hydrogen generators in 2015 specifically to meet rising demand for compact, efficient and easy-to-install hydrogen solutions. The launch followed intensive testing by Hydro-Chem, a US-based affiliate of Linde's Engineering Division, which included demonstration of reliable operations in a variety of application scenarios.
Reliable, fully automatic, pure
These competitive, on-site production solutions are extremely reliable, environmentally friendly, safe and flexible as they can be easily relocated. Very high natural gas conversion rates and heat recovery technology keep operating costs low. The plants are also fully automatic, enabling them to be remotely monitored and operated. They produce high-purity hydrogen (up to 99.999 percent) at 13.8 bar (200 psi). For the majority of applications, the resulting gas does not require further compression.
With the HYDROPRIME® hydrogen generators, Linde is reacting to customer requirements.
As a leading global provider of hydrogen generators equipped with proprietary technologies, Linde has the expertise not only to deliver new turnkey plants but also to help industrial customers expand existing capacities. On request, Linde also offers HYDROPRIME® outsourcing models, saving customers investment and maintenance costs.
