HG PRO 4000

PEM Hydrogen generator

The HydroGen series HG PRO 4000 is able to generate up to 4000 cc/min of Hydrogen with purity better than 99.99999% and pressure up to 16 bar (232 psi). The HG PRO includes a new long life multilayer electrolytic cell with polymeric membrane (PEM) using distilled water. No acid or alkaline solutions are used.

The two-column PSA drying system with automatic regeneration ensures the maximum grade of hydrogen purity, and is completely maintenance-free. The HG PRO 4000 is the ideal Hydrogen for all GC-FID detectors. The on-board CPU constantly controls the operating parameters to guarantee full safety. The touch-screen LCD interface provides simple and user-friendly management of all functions on the unit.
