Hydrogen Separation technology with thin-film palladium membranes.
These Hydrogen Separation Modules are offered by ECN for evaluation.

Hydrogen Separation Modules

Hysep® comprises a line of hydrogen membrane separation modules offered by ECN for evaluation purposes. The technology is based on thin-film palladium membranes which are capable of separating high purity hydrogen from a gas mixture.



Standardized hydrogen separation modules


Hysep 108 module

The Hysep 108 module is a single-membrane unit with a total area of 0.06 m2. It is especially suited for a first assessment of performance of ECN membranes under the specific conditions of interest to your application.


Hysep 308 module

The Hysep 308 module is especially suited for those who want to test at somewhat larger flows. It also allows verification of the multi-tube concept.


Hysep 1308 module

The Hysep 1308 module is the largest standard module on offer. It contains 0.5 m2 membrane surface. It can be used to verify both membrane performance and module designs at larger hydrogen fluxes.
