Hydro-Chem is a global leader in modular hydrogen plants, successfully bringing over 200 plants onstream since 1975.

Meeting the customer’s needs is our top priority. That’s why Hydro-Chem is offering customers a new line of standard-sized modular hydrogen plants – using steam-methane reforming – that reduce the time and cost of getting these plants onstream.

More choices.

With our new line of standard-sized, modular HYDROPRIME® plants, customers can pick the size that meets their needs. These highly efficient hydrogen generators come in seven capacity ranges:

  • HYDROPRIME® Min, 300 NCMH
  • HYDROPRIME® Mid 1, 1,300 NCMH
  • HYDROPRIME® Mid 2, 2,000 NCMH
  • HYDROPRIME® Mid 3, 3,000 NCMH
  • HYDROPRIME® Mid 6, 6,000 NCMH
  • HYDROPRIME® Mid 10, 10,000 NCMH
  • HYDROPRIME® Max, 28,000 NCMH

Standard HYDROPRIME® products can be scaled to meet any production rate within the respective range.

Big benefits.

Our standardized modular HYDROPRIME® plants offer important advantages over traditional supply modes (such as electrolytic plants, conventional steam methane plants, and truck-delivered bulk hydrogen).

Along with more choices in plant sizes, benefits are driven by standardization. By using a proven, standard design, Hydro-Chem offers more cost-effective options, with shorter lead times and greater reliability, readily available spare parts, and consistent documentation to streamline the customer’s scope of work.

Specific benefits include:

  • Modular, open-skid design enabling quicker delivery, streamlined installation (indoors or outdoors), and easy accessibility for maintenance
  • Ultra-high purity product (99.999+%)
  • Hydrogen produced at 200 psig (13.8 barg) or higher, reducing compression costs
  • Optimized plant design to reduce energy costs
  • Greater supply security with backup bulk systems
  • Fewer truck deliveries, reducing safety risks and lowering vehicle emissions
  • Full automation with fail-safe controls that allow unattended operation (including start-up, operation and monitoring)
