Hydrogen (H2) Detection

Portable & fixed-point H2 detectors for healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemical manufacturing, agriculture, and environmental testing.

About Hydrogen Detection

Hydrogen, the lightest and most abundant element in the universe, is a colorless, odorless gas.

It’s an energy carrier in fuel cells and has significant potential in the shift towards clean energy. Industries also use it in the production of ammonia, in refining metals, and as a reducing agent in various chemical processes. While non-toxic, hydrogen is highly flammable, requiring meticulous safety protocols to manage its explosive nature.

Common Challenges

  • Detection Sensitivity: Hydrogen is a small molecule that can easily leak through minute cracks and crevices, making it difficult to detect.
  • Flammability: Hydrogen has a wide flammability range and can ignite easily, posing significant safety risks.
  • Sensor Placement: Proper placement of hydrogen sensors is critical but challenging due to the gas’s tendency to rise and disperse quickly.
