New brand of small sized hydrogen generator
On April 1st, 2019, Osaka Gas Liquid Co., Ltd. (Headquarter: 5F, the Sumitomo Bldg. No.3, 4-7-19, Kitahama, Chuo-Ku, Osaka, 541-0041, Japan, President: Kenichi Kawamoto) has announced the launch of HYSERVE-5, steam reformer-type small hydrogen generator effectively producing hydrogen from piped gas or LP gas.
Daigas group, our parent company, has been marketing three types of hydrogen generator with the brand name of “HYSERVE”, whose hourly hydrogen production volumes are 30Nm3, 100Nm3, and 300Nm3 respectively.
Osaka Gas Liquid adds smaller volume version with the capacity of 5Nm3 per hour to the original line-up. Hydrogen is supplied by the containers such as cylinders or curdles for the smaller volume customers. If the consumers are located away from hydrogen delivery station, hydrogen price for such customers tends to be higher. Because delivery cost is higher and containers need to be replaced before hydrogen is used up.
By utilizing “HYSERVE-5”, hydrogen is produced effectively within customers’ premises in accordance with their demand volume. Hence hydrogen can be served at reasonable price. In addition, labor saving is realized by reducing receiving work of containers. In addition, demand for smaller size hydrogen generator is expected to increase with the spread of fuel cell forklift and so forth. Hydrogen can be supplied for such new usages at reasonable price by introducing “HYSERVE-5”.
Osaka Gas Liquid Co., Ltd., as a member of Daigas group, will continue to contribute to realize hydrogen energy society to endeavor to reformer-type hydrogen generator.
