Our SDF sensors have been successfully used for years by a renowned burner manufacturer to measure pure hydrogen as fuel gas. The devices of the AccuFlo® LPD series, which for more than 10 years have ensured the reliable use of gas turbines of a renowned manufacturer for measuring natural gas distribution, are now also successfully used in the operation of gas turbines with natural gas/hydrogen mixtures as fuel gas.
As early as 2015, we delivered the first device for measuring the mass flow of pure hydrogen as combustion gas.
Hydrogen, which can currently only be produced in a climate-neutral way with very low efficiency and high energy expenditure, is becoming increasingly important in the context of CO2 reduction. Due to its low density and small molecule size its use as a fuel gas places special demands on measurement technology.
We have successfully met these requirements and have thus established ourselves for several years as the reliable partner of a renowned burner manufacturer when it comes to the precise mass flow measurement of hydrogen and hydrogen-rich gases during combustion. In the meantime numerous flow measurements are successfully in use.
Also in the field of power generation using gas turbines, hydrogen is now added to natural gas as an additional fuel to reduce CO2 emissions.
Here, our AccuFlo® LPD series devices, which have already been successfully used for pure natural gas since 2005, perform outstandingly well.
The development of this series of devices is being driven forward on an ongoing basis in order to enable them to be used in future with higher mixtures of hydrogen and ideally also for pure hydrogen.
We are pleased to be able to make a contribution on the way to the most completely CO2-neutral combustion and power generation possible.
