Air Products’ newest hydrogen generation technology onstream at Global Tungsten & Powders

June 24, 2015

Air Products has completed the first installation of its new PRISM® PHG830 hydrogen generator at Global Tungsten & Powders Corp. (GTP), Towanda, Pennsylvania, USA. The new technology is now onstream at GTP’s manufacturing facility, where the two companies recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the successful completion of the project.


Air Products’ PRISM® PHG830 hydrogen generator is a highly

efficient and economical supply option for the onsite generation

of hydrogen requirements up to 5,000 nm3/hr

“Air Products has been supplying hydrogen to GTP for more than 30 years, and this is an important material to facilitate our tungsten reduction processes here,” stated James Morse, Director of Manufacturing Services at GTP. “It is reassuring to work with a gas supplier who understands our business and has the technical innovation and supply flexibility to meet our increasing product demands in the lowest-cost way possible.”

Air Products claim that their newly expanded range of PRISM® technology offers a highly efficient and economical supply option for the onsite generation of hydrogen up to 5000 nm3/hr.

 “We value the trust and confidence GTP has placed in us to continue meeting their increasing hydrogen requirements in the most reliable and economical way,” stated John Robinson, General Manager, Industrial Gases-North, at Air Products. “The new PRISM PHG830 hydrogen generator combines Air Products’ proprietary reformer technology with our hydrogen pressure swing adsorption capabilities to bring GTP the lowest cost hydrogen available in this production range.”

Air Products has installed more than 35 PRISM hydrogen generation units globally. The company’s PRISM hydrogen generators for onsite gas production are an important part of the company’s portfolio of supply options, which includes traditional bulk liquid and gas delivery, large onsite HyCO plants, and pipeline supply.
