Examples of applications

For fuel cells:

For hydrogen production

For storage

Odorization of hydrogen with liquid or gaseous odorants

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.
