New Moisture Analyzer Provides Reliable and Precise Hydrogen Metering Measurements even in the Harshest of Operational Conditions at Gas Grid Infeed Plants

Apr 16 2024

As the push for decarbonization gains momentum, converting electric power from renewable sources such as hydrogen has become a pivotal technology. One critical aspect of this process is reliable moisture measurement, which is essential for ensuring safety and compliance with contracted limits.

Key Technology Overview Polymer Electrolyte Water Electrolysis (PEM) and Alkaline Water Electrolysis are leading principles for converting water into hydrogen and oxygen using electric current. This hydrogen can then be stored and transported via existing gas pipelines, offering a versatile energy solution.

Why is Moisture Analysis so Important? At gas pressure regulating and metering stations, precise analysis of hydrogen moisture content is crucial. This ensures adherence to contracted feed-in limits and prevents operational issues like corrosion, erosion, and safety risks like hydrate formation.

How can we ensure that these measurements are accurate? BARTEC HYGROPHIL F Moisture Analyzer has been tailored for such critical applications. Its robust design ensures reliability even in ever-changing operational conditions, making it ideal for use in load-following hydrogen production plants.

Advanced Sensor Technology: The core of the moisture sensor features an optical thin film element made of silicon dioxide and zirconium dioxide. This innovative design enables precise detection of moisture levels, with minimal maintenance requirements.

Why choose the HYGROPHIL F?

  • Robust sensor construction for long-term stability, suitable even for offshore installations.
  • Sensor validation in hydrogen by accredited laboratories ensures accuracy.
  • Easy maintenance with sensor cleaning and optional sensor retraction armature for quick replacements.
  • Flexible installation options with customized sample conditioning systems.
  • Certified for safe operation in hazardous areas.

In conclusion, the HYGROPHIL F Moisture Analyzer offers unmatched reliability and accuracy in moisture measurement for hydrogen metering and gas grid infeed plants. Its advanced technology and robust construction make it a preferred choice for ensuring safety and compliance in critical energy applications worldwide.
