On-demand hydrogen generation to eliminate hydrogen cylinders

R&D Winner H-Genie hydrogen generator

On-demand hydrogen generation

The H-Genie® is an award-winning compact system designed for on-demand hydrogen generation. Utilizing patented technology, it enables you to produce 4.0 purity hydrogen gas from water at pressures up to 100 bar (1450 psi) and flow rates up to 1 NL/min. The system is designed to be used in any laboratory as a safer and simpler replacement for hydrogen cylinders and to expand your chemistry capabilities.

Systems compatible with the H-Genie®

Phoenix™ Flow systems

The Phoenix™ II Flow Reactor is a powerful instrument which can heat the reaction zone up to 450 °C and is compatible with multiple types and sizes of reactors (CatCarts®, MidiCarts™, coiled reactors, metal-metal sealed catalyst columns).

Designed to be used safely in any discovery, development, process, petrochemical or catalyst screening lab, the Phoenix – H-Genie® hydrogenation platform combines in-situ high pressure hydrogen generation from water with high temperature reactor capability and a precise gas data monitoring system for the first time. Chemists and chemical engineers can now run hydrogen-based experiments with homogeneous or heterogeneous catalysts up to 450°C and 100 bar without the need for hydrogen cylinders or hydrogen infrastructure.

This is the gas flow rate at room temperature and 1 bar. For example, the maximum flow rate at 1 bar is 1 L/min. At 100 bar it will be 10 mL/min.
Deionized water only, MilliQ or MilliPure standards are fine. (< 1µS (microSiemens)/cm)
Yes. Just change deionized water to heavy water.
No. The H-Genie generates it on-demand.
It’s designed to be set up in a ventilated cabinet or fume hood (essential) and connected to reactors in this area.
