H2 Generator Desk
PAR series

The PAR series generators use an electrolytic cell with polymeric membrane (PEM) to produce pure hydrogen.

The innovative gas drying system requires no maintenance because these series of generators is provided with a programmable internal regeneration.

The exclusive, electronically-controlled gas/liquid separator, automatic checking for internal leaks whenever starting the unit, and constant control of operating parameters guarantee maximum safety.

Up to 20 units can be connected in parallel.

The touch-screen LCD interface provides simple and user-friendly management of all functions on the unit.

Hydrogen is produced from distilled water using a polymeric membrane (PEM). No acid or alkaline solutions are used. The drying column does not need replacing, it is regenerated automatically by activating a special cycle, lasting around 3 hours.

Regeneration needs to be performed every three to twelve months, depending on the quantity of hydrogen produced.
