Hydrogen Production & Purification
EAJV hydrogen separators/purificators operate on the Pressure Swing Adsorption process, also known as PSA Technology. This technology is based on the selective adsorption phenomena of gas molecules under pressure on the surface of highly porous and efficient adsorbent, In the case of Hydrogen generation the Adsorbent is Carbon-based Molecular Sieve(CMS).

Hydrogen Purification

To achieve high hydrogen purity and recovery, EAJV utilizes its high quality adsorbent such as silica gel, activated alumina, activated carbon and molecular sieves.
Hydrogen Purification

EAJV hydrogen separators/ purificators operate on the Pressure Swing Adsorption process, also known as PSA Technology. This technology is based on the selective adsorption phenomena of gas molecules under pressure on the surface of highly porous and efficient adsorbent. When hydrogen and carbon dioxide from the water shift reaction are used for hydrogen generation, the adsorption towers are filled with molecular sieves.
The molecules of carbon dioxide, moisture and other gases are adsorbed on the surface of adsorbents. Hydrogen which is not adsorbed by adsorbents passes through the adsorption tower and is collected in a vessel.

For continuous generation of hydrogen multiple adsorption towers are provided and are operated with auto change-over valves controlled by a PLC. After saturation of one tower with carbon dioxide the process automatically changes over to the next tower and thus the hydrogen production is continuous.

Steam Methane Reforming

Steam reforming of hydrocarbons is conventionally used for feedstock production for methanol synthesis, hydrogen production, ammonia synthesis and Fisher-Tropsch synthesis. Syngas or Hydrogen can be produced using the Steam Methane Reforming process.

In the case of hydrogen production, the methane reforming step is followed by the Water Gas Shift (WGS) reaction. During that process the carbon monoxide part of the syngas produced is reacted with steam over a catalyst to convert CO into carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen. The WGS reaction is first produced at a temperature of 350˚C which is called High Temperature Shift (HTS). The reaction is further completed at a lower temperature 190˚C to 210˚C Low Temperature Shift (LTS).

EAJV produces small to medium size SMR systems for the GTL industry in the range of 50,000 Nm3/h to 200,000 Nm3/h of syngas. We also produce small SMR system for the production of hydrogen.
