The HYDROPRIME compact hydrogen generator has been launched by Linde


The Linde Group has successfully launched its new HYDROPRIME(R) plant line of innovative, cost effective hydrogen generators which are based on proven steam methane reforming technology.

Hydro-Chem, a division of Linde Engineering North America, announced today that it has tested and proven the reliability and suitability of these units in various applications. The company is now launching the mass production release of HYDROPRIME(R) as a competitive and reliable local production alternative to trucked-in bulk gases.

“Linde developed HYDROPRIME(R) to address the market place requirement for efficient, easy-to-install, compact plants by taking advantage of Hydro-Chem’s extensive experience in modular hydrogen plant design and fabrication,” according to Raju Natarajan, President, Hydro-Chem.

HYDROPRIME(R) plants offer many advantages over traditional supply modes such as truck-delivered liquid hydrogen, electrolytic plants, and conventional steam methane reforming plants. These plants have a capacity of 0.15 – 0.9 MMSCFD (165 – 1,000 Nm3/h) and produce ultra-high purity hydrogen (99.999+ %) at 200 psi (13.8-bar), reducing the need for product compression in most uses. The new product line has a very high natural gas conversion rate and is highly heat integrated, which translates into low operating cost.
