Flow meters for Hydrogen applications

A few places where you can find Bronkhorst equipment:
Our gas flow meters from the EL-FLOW Select and EL-FLOW Prestige series are used within many Hydrogen research and pilot facilities for example for testing fuel cells. Our IN-FLOW gas flow meter series can be found at production sites at places where high quantities of hydrogen are measured and in Hydrogen generation equipment. Our liquid flow meter series are used for delivery of odorant to hydrogen or natural gas. 

Hydrogen applcations overview


Humidification of fuel cells

Application story of Bronkhorst evaporation system used in a test bench in the German automotive industry for generating a controlled water vapour flow for humidification of fuel cells.

Fuel cell for automotive industry

Electrolyser membrane testing

To retrieve fossil fuels such as natural gas, oil and coal, you have to drill for them to get them out of the earth’s crust. In contrast to that, the energy carrier hydrogen does not occur in nature freely.
