H2 & fuel cells

Testing are essential!

With the National Hydrogen Strategy, the federal government supports new technologies related to hydrogen.

Flow measurement & hydrogen

We are specialists in the field of flow measurement technology for gases .
We build test benches and measurement sections in the area of the complete calibration pyramid – from the working standard such as hydrogen-capable flow measurement systems for consumption measurement on fuel cells through to high-precision primary standards such as those used by the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB).

Do you have an idea which measurements can finally be carried out under real conditions?

Perhaps you want to carry out experiments with your test items with the real gas calibration loop? e.g. a volume flow measurement of the hydrogen output of electrolysers!

Or would you like us to calibrate your gas meters or other components with hydrogen?

Hydrogen approved!

Low flow measurement – also for hydrogen.

Hydrogen is traded as the clean energy carrier of the future and research offensives such as the German hydrogen strategy help to advance developments in this area quickly. Due to the very low density and chemical reactivity, existing measuring devices are not always suitable for determining the flow of hydrogen.

The RPD reference gas meters have been tested for resistance and tightness for hydrogen. In addition, the PTB in Braunschweig carried out the first measurements (in the range from 0.08 to 10 m³/h), which showed excellent reproducibility. Corresponding correction polynomials for flow measurement with hydrogen can be provided on request.
