PEM Hydrogen generator

The HydroGen series HG BASIC is able to generate up to 700 cc/min of Hydrogen with purity better than 99.9999% and pressure up to 10 bar (145 psi). The HG BASIC includes a new long life multilayer electrolytic cell with polymeric membrane (PEM) using distilled water. No acid or alkaline solutions are used.

The innovative drying system ensures the maximum grade of hydrogen purity, protects the GC thanks to its innovative humidity safe guard, HG BASIC is completely maintenance-free and allows continuous operation, 24 hours a day. The on-board CPU automatically check for internal leaks and constantly control the operating parameters to guarantee full safety.

Up to 20 units can be connected in parallel mode using an external control box. The touch-screen LCD interface provides simple and user-friendly management of all functions on the unit.

Stackable with various other models: AG-OFCAS35; NG-EOLO; AG-ZA-Fid.
