LDetek technology to trace impurity measurements at Air Liquide hydrogen complex

LDetek’s HyDetek system will provide trace impurity measurements in hydrogen produced at Air Liquide’s hydrogen unit in Bécancour, Quebec, Canada.

The HyDetek system is used to detect traces of oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide in the hydrogen produced at the plant.

It uses LDetek’s patented plasma emission detector configured with the right selective optical filters for measuring ppb/ppm oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide – the main contaminants to be controlled and measured for the hydrogen produced by water electrolysis .

The gas chromatograph uses Argon as carrier gas which reduces the operation costs by a factor of 4-5 times, compared to instruments that use helium.
