Cryogenic Hydrogen or Helium Compressor

A low-cost way to meet your production requirements

Industrial producers requiring high-pressure hydrogen for chemical, refinery, and bioenergy manufacturing can now reduce costs and improve onstream time by using Air Products’ Cryogenic Hydrogen or Helium Compressor (CHC) system. The proprietary technology is a liquid hydrogen supply system that provides complete operating flexibility for hydrogen flow rates up to 120,000 scfh under pressures up to 10,000 psig. Changing production needs can be matched instantly, reducing costs and minimizing downtime.

With Air Products' CHC system, industrial producers requiring high-pressure hydrogen can reduce operating costs, increase efficiency, and improve onstream time.

​Multiple ways the CHC can help to reduce costs and other benefits

Lower capital expense

The efficiency of the CHC system requires less capital investment to achieve the desired flow and pressure requirements

Reduced operating costs through minimized vent losses

A two-phase flow process can capture gas formed through normal heat leak vaporization and deploy that gas into the process

Increased efficiency through load-following

With Air Products' unique load-following technology, the system's output can fluctuate and closely match changing demand requirements

Easy to install

The CHC system consists of completely skidded modular components that can be installed easily and safely on your site

Reliable supply

With a network of distribution facilities located strategically throughout North America, dedicated drivers, and proprietary logistics software, bulk gas delivery is 99.95 % on-time
