The application of hydrogen transmitter is very important

With the increase in hydrogen applications, the safety of hydrogen generators is now more important than ever. Although the future of the hydrogen economy is uncertain, it is clear that ensuring the safety of future hydrogen boilers and hydrogen generators will depend on the widespread availability of reliable gas detectors. The hydrogen transmitter developed by JXCT can monitor hydrogen well online.

The Rise of Hydrogen

Hydrogen has long been an important industrial gas, playing an important role in petrochemical processing, chemical manufacturing and as a coolant. However, as more and more applications use hydrogen as a fuel, its role in society will change rapidly in the coming years. Unlike other fuels that come almost entirely from natural oil or natural gas, hydrogen is not a naturally abundant energy source on Earth. However, unlike fossil fuels, hydrogen can be produced from ordinary water.

Industrial hydrogen has traditionally been produced through steam methane reforming (SMR), a process that consumes natural gas. Electrolysis, or "water splitting," on the other hand, can be used to produce hydrogen using only electricity and water. Powering electrolytic hydrogen generators with renewable energy provides an efficient and versatile way to store renewable energy in the form of hydrogen, providing a solution to the large-scale energy storage problem in distributed renewable energy grids.

Hydrogen has an extremely high energy density (much higher than batteries or capacitors) and can store energy for long periods of time without loss. Furthermore, using fuel cells to recover energy from hydrogen produces only water vapor in the process. Hydrogen can play an important role in decarbonizing the world's energy supply if effective hydrogen boiler and hydrogen generator safety measures are implemented.

Safety precautions for hydrogen boilers and hydrogen generators

As hydrogen begins to play a more prominent role in energy production, transmission and storage. Electrolytic hydrogen generators (producing hydrogen by electrolysis of water) and hydrogen boilers (heating water by burning hydrogen) will become more common - safety considerations for hydrogen transmitters will become more important.

Despite hydrogen's many advantages and applications, the fact remains that it is a dangerous gas. The flammability of hydrogen in air is adversely affected between 4% and 75% by volume (in contrast, methane is only flammable between 4.4% and 17% by volume in air). It also takes far less energy to ignite hydrogen in air than other fuel gases like methane or propane. Furthermore, leaks are a particular concern when it comes to hydrogen generator safety: As the smallest gas molecule in the universe, hydrogen is particularly prone to leaking from containers and pipes. The result is that the safety of hydrogen boilers and hydrogen generators can only be ensured by implementing reliable gas detection technology.

Quick and reliable identification of hydrogen leaks is critical to the safety of hydrogen generators. Many different technologies are suitable for hydrogen detection – however, catalytic combustion sensors provide the most direct path to identifying combustion hazards that affect the safety of hydrogen generators.
