Air Products continues to meet the growing hydrogen demand of Global Tungsten & Powders Corp. (GTP) with the first installation of its new PRISM® PHG830 hydrogen generator.

The new technology is now onstream at GTP’s manufacturing facility in Towanda, PA, where the two companies held a ribbon-cutting ceremony today to celebrate the successful completion of the project. The newly expanded range of Air Products’ PRISM® technology demonstrates the flexibility of this highly efficient and economical supply option for the onsite generation of hydrogen requirements up to 5,000 nm3/hr.

“We value the trust and confidence GTP has placed in us to continue meeting their increasing hydrogen requirements in the most reliable and economical way,” said John Robinson, general manager, Industrial Gases, North, at Air Products. “The new PRISM PHG830 hydrogen generator combines Air Products’ proprietary reformer technology with our hydrogen pressure swing adsorption capabilities to bring GTP the lowest cost hydrogen available in this production range.”

“Air Products has been supplying hydrogen to GTP for more than 30 years, and this is an important material to facilitate our tungsten reduction processes here,” said James Morse, director of Manufacturing Services at GTP. “It is reassuring to work with a gas supplier who understands our business and has the technical innovation and supply flexibility to meet our increasing product demands in the lowest-cost way possible.”
