Green in more ways than one: An interview with PDC Machines

Ever since its founding in a Philadelphia-based garage back in 1977, the story of PDC Machines has been an eventful one. And what once stood as an industrial gases and chemicals solutions provider, is now one of world’s most renowned compressor manufacturers, supplying the hydrogen economy globally.

PDC Machines’ diaphragm gas compressors are integral to hydrogen refuelling stations and therefore a product which is currently very high in demand due to the ever-evolving hydrogen mobility market. In fact, PDC Machines’ CEO Kareem Afzal explained just how integral the company’s products are, when he sat down with H2 View for an exclusive interview.

“Today, our unit volume is more than double the volume of last year and our revenue is 80% higher than last year. Companies around the world are using our product to fuel cars, forklifts, busses, trucks, planes and trains; really anything that requires high pressure compression for mobility applications, energy storage and a variety of other energy applications,” Afzal enthused.

Arguably the heart of a hydrogen refuelling station, the compressor is key, and makes the infrastructure come to life. Station developers simply could not dispense a product without compressors and technologies. It’s the compression technologies that essentially enable refuelling at speeds of three-to-five minutes.
